How Much did the Mother of Dragons Earn in Game of Thrones? The Figures Might Give You a Heart Attack!
Game of Thrones is undeniably one of the highest-grossing productions amongst television shows. Almost everyone in the planet was taken by the storm by HBO’s American fantasy drama that started in 2011. Aside from who will sit in the Iron Throne, people are also wondering how much money the casts are earning, especially those who literally live their lives in the set of Game of Thrones.
One of the fundamental castings is the mother of dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, who is portrayed by Emilia Clarke. Her role as Khaleesi gave her several career opportunities. She was nominated three times as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in the Primetime Emmy Award.
Being the Mother of the Dragons Has a Good Pay
Now, we all know that the mother of dragons failed her mission to conquer the seven kingdoms, but people can’t stop asking how much did she earn from her Game of Thrones journey since 2011 up to 2019. Commanding three full-grown dragons to breathe fire and burn cities must be a hell of a job. We are pretty much sure, HBO compensated Clarke very well.
Her salary for the first four seasons was kept in private, but judging from the importance of her role since then, the figures may not be far from her season 5 and season 6’s income. Clarke and some of the main characters re-negotiated their contracts and came across with $300,000 per episode, based on the reports. Each season has 10 episodes in it, which means Clarke earned approximately $6 million for seasons 5 and 6 alone.
As the series proceeded, the storyline became more and more interesting and has gotten public attention. That also means it is a perfect time to iron the fire for the casts. The stars of Game of Thrones came to terms again with HBO.
As per Khaleesi, she reportedly agreed with $1.1 million per episode for seasons 7 and season 8. The last two seasons have fewer episodes compared to the first 6 seasons. Season 7 has 7 episodes while season 8 has six. If we do the math, Clarke took home $14.3 out of the final seasons of Game of Thrones.
Emila Clarke Outside Westeros
Emilia Clarke definitely has the life of the queen with all the money she earned from Game of Thrones, but that’s not everything yet. Aside from fighting wars and riding dragons in Westeros, she is also well-known on the big screen.
She starred in several movie hits like Me Before You. She didn’t reveal her income from that movie but judging from the film’s $208 million revenue, that’s tons of cash, for sure.
