See How Much Game Of Thrones Star, Kit Harington “Jon Snow” Earns Per Episode
Popular actor, Kit Harington popularly known by his name “Jon Snow” on the hit HBO series is winning both in Game of Thrones and real life.
The actor, who was a fairly unknown actor until he joined Game of Thrones, reportedly earns £2m (N928m) per episode of the hit HBO fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.
Harington is, however, not the only person making that amount; other stars — Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Danish co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lanister) also earn £2m in each episode of the film.
The big cash had come from bonus clauses, which saw the stars earning percentages of the syndication payments that come from the record-breaking show being aired in more than 170 countries.
The stars are also said to be benefitting from payments from re-runs, with shows earning audiences of up to 23 million people during the sixth season.
Meanwhile, Harington is reportedly worth $12m (N4.3bn).
