  • Posted 18 months Ago

According to E! News, actor Lena Headey, who plays the key role of Cersei Lannister in HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, gets paid "more than $1 million per episode".

The reported salary was found by E! News in court documents filed last week for their child custody case, which state that Headey's ex husband, Peter Loughran, is asking her for $40,000 of his attorney's fees because he's currently unemployed.

Last month, The Hollywood Reporter also wrote that co-stars Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) "banded together" to renegotiate their pay, resulting in a rumoured $1.1 million per episode for seven episodes of season 7 and six episodes of season 8.

The new season of Game of Thrones is due to air in mid-2017.
