Let's talk cash

HBO premiered the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones on Sunday night, and while it's no secret the cast is rather well paid (it is one of the biggest TV shows in history), you might be surprised to learn how much each actor takes home from an episode. It's been reported that post season 8, the stars could be the highest paid actors on TV today. Wow. 

Here are some of the core cast members and how much they make per episode (cha-ching!)

Kit Harrington - $710,000 (Dhs2,607,936)

Did you know that Emilia Clarke was the seventh highest paid TV star on a prime time show from 2017-2018? Well, keep scrolling because we found her partner in dime Lena Heady.

Apparently Arya Stark is considered as Tier B cast, which means that she gets paid less than the main cast members. But that's okay because she's still makin' it rain.

Hello Mrs.Jonas to be. Sansa Stark is making the same money as her sister Arya and she is rocking it. 

Yep, we officially feel poor.
