Here's How Much The Game Of Thrones Cast Get Paid

​But for how much longer?

The Game of Thrones cast get paid more per episode than we do in 20 years and frankly, we need a drink.

In a survey conducted by Variety, the salaries of the highest-paid actors on TV have been unveiled, with the wealthy stars of HBO's fantasy epic very high up in the drama category.

Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) make a somewhat sickening grand total of $500,000 (£393,000) per episode.

Yep, you heard that right - PER EPISODE. Typical that the three Lannisters are raking in the most cash, eh?

Tyrion, Cersei, Jon, Daenerys and Jaime are seen as the biggest stars of the show by HBO, which explains why they make the most cash - but does it mean they're going to make it to the end?

Just last month, Sansa Stark actress Sophie Turner revealed a Game of Thrones shocker when she said more people will die in season seven.

"We've got one more season... well, not all of us," Sophie explained.

Alexander Siddig, the actor who played Doran Martell, has also said that he was pissed about his character randomly getting killed.

Though it seems he's not receiving the $500,000 (£393,000) pay cheque per episode, as Siddig added: "You don't earn as much as you would if you were doing another show, because they're Game of Thrones, and they don't have to pay anyone. So it's kind of a blessing in disguise."

Game of Thrones will return to HBO and Sky Atlantic in summer 2017 - later than its usual April launch.
