Let me give you a spoiler it is not Daenerys or Jon Snow. We all know how much the show Game of Thrones has collected. No one predicted that this could be such a huge success. But what is surprising is how much money the individual actors made from the show.
12. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) $3 million
She played the first Commander of the King’s Guard and appeared as the first Lady Night in Season 2. The total earning from all the seasons is $3 million.
11. Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) – $3 million
He played a knight in Season 1 who was later banished from Westeros.
10. Issac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) – $4 million
Can you believe he was only 10 years old when the first season was filmed? He is 19 years now.
9. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) – $6 million
This beauty made her debut with Game Of Thrones and became successful with the first show. She got paid $150,000 per episode.
8. Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) – $6 million
Arya Stark no doubt is one of the most promising characters in the show. Maisie is praised by the critics for doing justice to the character.
7. Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) – $6 million
From Season 2 to Season 6 she has been one of the most interesting characters in the show.

4. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) -$12 million
He was not that famous until season 5. He was earning only $300,000 per episode. In season 7 his pay increased to $500,000. In the last season, he earned $1.2 million every episode.
3. Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) – $13 million
She is one of the lead characters of the show so obviously, she earned a lot of money.
