While Emilia Clarke’s acting career has not been very prolific thus far, that is because most of her time over the last decade has been dedicated to portraying one of the most iconic characters in the entertainment world: Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

As one of the leading actors on Game of Thrones, Clarke has demanded quite a pretty penny in recent years as her profile as an actress has grown into A-List status.

According to a lawsuit involving fellow Thrones co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and his former manager, the Jamie Lannister actor earned $942,857 per episode for season seven and $1,066,667 per episode for Season 8.

Given that all of the show’s five main actors (Clarke, Coster-Waldau, Kit Harrington, Peter Dinklage, and Lena Headey) reportedly earn the same salary, it’s safe to assume that Clarke was paid the same.
