There is no doubt that ‘Game of Thrones’ is one of the best series to have ever been created for television. Every single actor of the series is now a superstar.
Of course, being superstars they are expected to command an enviable salary that can put their peers to shame.
The news is that five of the leading lords and ladies of the show are getting paid a mind-numbing UK Pound 2 million per episode, which is approximately Rs.16.5 crores!
Can you believe it?! That is what they are getting for every episode!
And no prizes for guessing who these famous five are who command this ginormous amount: Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys Targaryen, Kit Harington aka Jon Snow, Peter Dinklage aka Tyrion Lannister, Lena Headey aka Cersei Lannister and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau aka Jaime Lannister.
According to reports, they have now surpassed the lead stars of ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S’, who made $1 million (Rs.6.5 crores approx.) as the highest paid actors in the history of television.
And the GOT stars are not just making this fees but will also earn from repeat telecast of the show because of a new clause.
