Actors love TV show gigs because it has a manageable routine.
Movies are shot quick and long meaning they spend 1 month working 14 hour days. TV shows are not like that. Everyone is working like a normal person –> 8-12 hours a days 5 days a week.
Game of Thrones is doing pretty well. Currently in season 6 and already guaranteed an extension through season 7, the stars are loving this gig. And so are the fans. I’m personally not a heavy-duty watcher but I do like the show.
So How Much Cash Have The Actors Signed on For Season 7?
Let me tell you it’s a nice sum of money.
$2.1 million for the year for the top 5 actors of the show. Since they’re currently doing 9 episodes per season that works out to just more than $230,000 per episode. A solid raise on their previous $150,000 per episode salary.
