Game of Thrones fans will be anxiously awaiting another season of the record-breaking show after this Sunday’s finale. For regular viewers it isn’t difficult to recognize that the show is approaching it’s final term and that winter is finally coming. Having only been contracted for six seasons, some of the larger players of the HBO series are looking to receive a pay raise for their upcoming efforts in the final two seasons.
Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) are expected to earn upwards of $500,000 per episode according to The Hollywood Reporter, which would make the stars some of the highest-paid in US cable TV.
Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) are among some of the supporting characters whose salaries are still under negotiation.
