Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey's salary revealed by her ex-husband



Game of Thrones is one of the most watched TV shows, ever, and as you would expect, its stars get paid a lot. Now, Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, has had her salary figure revealed by her ex-husband, in a court proceeding regarding custody of their son.

As some of you might already be knowing, Heady shares the custody of her 6-year-old son Wylie with her husband, Peter Loughran. According to a report published byE! News, Loughran asked Heady to pay $40,000 in his attorney’s fees, citing that he cannot afford to pay them himself. He went on to state that Headey earns an “estimated more than $1 million per episode”.

We had previously reported about a salary bump for five of the actors from Game of Thrones, which includedPeter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen)and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister). Their pay was bumped up to $1.1 million per episode.

Loughran also said that Headey has paid $20,000 in a similar situation before, and that she should do it again because of her high income. He further said :

“I was a hairstylist before marriage. Lena urged me to quit my job and travel with her on her work as an actress and take care of our minor son.

Lena has a very large income from Game of Thrones and other film projects. I have very little money and do not receive support. I cannot afford to pay my attorney, and require [Headey] pay those fees and costs in order to have equal footing in this matter.”
