TV Guide Magazine is poised to release their annual list of the 150 highest paid actors and talent on TV. And Peter Dinklage makes the list. According to TV Guide Magazine, he makes $150,000 an episode. Or $1.5 million a season. Not bad, even for a Lannister.
That pales in comparison to some of the other earners on this list though, like Jon Stewart of The Daily Show who makes over $25 million a year or Judge Judy (!!) who tops the list at $47 million a year.
Winter Is Coming: Dinklage is obviously the biggest star in this ensemble cast. Winning an Emmy and Golden Globe will do that. I’d be curious to know how much the other actors are making per episode. I’m guessing Lena Headey has to be getting close to Dinklage money. Who else?
UPDATE: Turns out I was right about Headey, in the full article in TV Guide Magazine, it notes that Lena Headey makes the same amount per episode as her co-star: $150,000.
