Throughout the eight seasons, the actor earned quite an impressive amount per episode.
The actor was unknown by the audience when he auditioned for the role of none other than the amazing Jon Snow from HBO’s hit TV show 'Game Of Thrones.'
Even though this was his very first project, it was certainly not the last and he now has fans all over the world and plenty of job offers.
The star has since appeared in a number of other TV shows as well, but they certainly do not pay nearly as much as he made on 'Game Of Thrones'. Keep on reading to find out how much did the actor earn for his magnificent role as Jon Snow.
Almost instantly, the actor was a favorite of the audience. Even with the character’s unfortunate demise at the end of season 5, it was meant to be for Jon Snow to make his ultimately return and remain part of the show until season 8.
During the 8 seasons on the show, Kit Harington managed to make $500,000 per episode. According to Variety, both Harington and Emilia Clarke, who played the role of Daenerys Targaryen, had the same salary. However, that wasn’t the case with other actors and actresses of the cast, for example, Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark, only made $175,000.
Taking into account that each season had an average of ten episodes each, Kit Harington made upward of $30 million, however, with a net worth of $14 million, chances are Kit was not making half a million dollars during the earlier seasons.
Regardless of what his pay may have been at the start of the show, it is clear that Harington was living his dream and earning a lot of money, especially for someone who had not appeared in any major production prior to 'Game Of Thrones'.
After GoT ended, Kit found himself married to Rose Leslie and they are expecting their first child together. He’s not the only GoT star that did it, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas just welcomed their first child. It is clear that Kit has skyrocketed to international fame and success, fans are intrigued to see what’s going to be his next step in his professional career.
