Game of Thrones stars are getting major salary hikes for seasons 7 and 8, reports Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter. Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) will be paid over $500,000 per episode for the next (and possibly final) two seasons.
This however, does not guarantee that their characters will survive till season 8. HBO has already renewed the show for season 7, which will have 7 episodes. It is widely believed that Game of Thrones will end with season 8, consisting of 6 episodes.
