According to E! News, Lena Heady who plays the key role of Cersei Lannister on Game of Thrones makes more than $1 million USD per episode. The actress is currently in the midst of a child custody case with her ex husband, Peter Loughran. Court documents filed last week shows that he’s asking her for $40,000 USD for his attorney’s fees because he’s currently unemployed.
It was also reported last month that co-stars Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) got together to renegotiate their pay, which resulted in a rumored $1.1 million USD per episode for the seven episodes of season 7, and six episodes for season 8.
