'Game of Thrones' cast make $500K per episode

"Game of Thrones" is the biggest show on television by a lot of measures, and certainly the biggest hit in HBO's history, so it's no surprise that its actors – the ones who have managed to survive into the seventh season – are making bank.

If you've ever wondered exactly how much a starring role in Westeros pays, Variety now has the answers for you.
{loadmodule mod_banners,nativeads}
In its 2017 salary survey – a "sampling of estimates" for the paychecks of TV's most notable stars – the outlet revealed that Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington and Lena Headey all make the same amount per episode: $500,000.

Yes, that is per episode, meaning a full 13-episode season would bring in well over $6 million. According to their list, that's the same as Kevin Spacey brings in for an episode of House of Cards, and slightly more than Claire Danes makes for an episode of Homeland.

In some cases, that per-episode estimate includes "additional compensation for their work as producers or for their profit participation stakes", meaning that dollar amount isn't their pure per-episode salary as actors – but none of the Thrones cast are listed as producers. (By comparison, Spacey and Danes are both producers on their respective shows.)

If you're now feeling suitably depressed about your own financial prospects, click on over to Variety to read the full list, which includes some more modest paychecks.

The Crown's Claire Foy, for instance, made just $40,000 per episode for the first season of the Netflix drama, though she's undoubtedly renegotiated in the wake of her multiple award nominations.

See the $60K Gift Travis $cott Got Kylie Jenner for Her 20th Birthday

A very famous Calabasas resident awoke on her birthday to a string quartet and a rose-filled room last week, a gift from her rapper boo.

No, we're not talking about Kimye, but Kim's suspiciously similar looking half-sister Kylie Jenner and her boyfriend, Travis Scott. It would seem Travis took a page out the old Ye book in ringing in the youngest (and richest) KarJenner's birthday.

But the presents didn't stop at just live music and roses. Travis also gifted Kylie a diamond-encrusted butterfly chain that's valued at $60,000. Looks like he really wanted to pull out all the stops for his new girl. You may recall that the butterfly is a relationship motif of sorts for Travis and Kylie (Trylie? Kyvis?), as the couple has matching butterfly tattoos.



At Kylie's surprise party that was attended by her family, Travis allegedly gave her this cake, above, that reads "I love your phat p***y." Romantic!

Shatta Wale best musician now – C-zar

Dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr., known by his stage name as Shatta Wale, is currently the best musician in the country hiplife musician, according to C-zar.

Listing his best Ghanaian musicians in an interview on Accra FM on Friday, C-zar said Shatta Wale was number one. R2Bees, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Kofi Kinaata add up to make his five best Ghanaian musicians.

In response to why he left out Samini in his list, C-zar said “Samini is [a good artiste] I don’t play with, he’s marvellous but we are talking of the best artistes at the moment that is why I left out his name.”

C-zar also believes that Sarkodie is the only rapper who has taken Ghana music to the apex as far as the international stage is concerned.

According to him, although Ghanaian rappers are struggling to make inroads on the international stage, Sarkodie has carved a niche for himself with his unique style of rap which has given him international recognition.

“Today, almost all of our songs have turned rap music; it appears if you can’t rap you are out of the game or you can’t do music. This has allowed the Nigerian artistes to take over, because, they have taken the highlife beats and are using their dialects, their pidgin to sing and the foreigners relate with them more than us because they have developed their own style.

“We in Ghana are copying western rappers verbatim and so Ghana music has messed up and that’s how I see it.

“There are a few people like Kofi Kinaata and Wuta with their hit song ‘Bronya’ which today, both the young and old are singing and dancing to, singing…

However, Sarkodie for instance is a rapper and rap has taken him to a different level.

“Apart from Sarkodie who is taking Ghana to another level, honestly speaking, the rest of the rappers are not taking us anywhere. Sarkodie is the only rapper taking Ghana high.”

Muslim Miss Universe contestant refused to wear bikini

Mana Jama put her chances of winning the competition on life support after announcing that she wouldn’t be competing in the swimsuit portion of the pageant if she had to wear a bikini because it goes against her religious beliefs.

In discussing her decision with Metro UK, Jama says, “I wouldn’t wear a bikini to the beach, so I’m not going to wear one in a competition to score points.” After she discussed her decision with the heads of the event, they decided that she’d be allowed to cover up if she so chose.

Welp, she did and in doing so, became the first ever woman to wear a kaftan during the bikini portion of a pageant. And she pulled it off stunningly. Alongside her clothing, Jama wore a beautiful choker and hoop earrings.

After her runway performance she took to Instagram and further explained why she decided to take a stand for something she believed in.

“This moment has proved that I am capable of almost anything I set my mind to and limitations is a status waiting to be changed,” she captioned under a pic of her modeling in the competition. “I thank everyone who stood beside me and believed in my vision.”


It’ll be interesting to see the sort of precedent this will set in all beauty pageants across the world. Maybe it’ll give other women the extra courage they need to take a stand in their own way.

Check out Mana Jama about her decision to wear a kaftan during the bikini portion of Miss Universe Great Britain below.
