This is how much the Game of Thrones cast will make per episode next season


Game of Thrones is a really popular TV show. You've probably heard of it.

It's essentially watched by all the people in all the countries, which means that its network HBO will be able to pay the leading cast members quite a lot of money per episode for the next two seasons. 

A staggering $500,000 (£336,633) per episode, to be exact.

The Hollywood Reporter has heard from 'sources' that Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) will all receive the unlikely sum for every episode of season seven, and the yet-to-be-confirmed eighth season. 

This means that all of the aforementioned characters are set to survive the finale of season six this weekend. Huzzah! 

Now, on an entirely different note, here's an awesome video of Italian sculptor Valeriano Fatica carving the Night King out of a watermelon in 18 hours. Why? Stop asking such inane questions and just watch it...
