Kit Harington Net Worth After Game of Thrones Revealed

There’s no doubt that Kit Harington was the star of HBO’s Game of Throne. Even though Jon Snow didn’t get the throne in the end, he was part of every season and was one of the main reasons fans fell in love with George RR Martin’s epic story. He hadn’t appeared in a TV show or a movie before landing the role, but he led in the critically acclaimed West End play War Horse at the National Theatre. That’s what brought him to the attention of Game of Throne’s casting directors.

Game of Thrones Salary

There’s very little information on what Kit Harington earned from the first three seasons of GoT, but we know he was on $300,000 per episode from season four to season six. That’s $3 million per year. During the final two seasons, each of the show’s top four stars - Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) earned $500,000 per episode. The second-tier guys - Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) each earned $175,000 an episode. There were fewer episodes in each of the final two seasons. Season seven only contained seven episodes, so Harington earned $3.5 million that year and $3 million for the final season’s six-episode run.

Other Roles

Although Harington’s starred in several films, including Spooks: The Greater Good and Testament of Youth, his wage for those roles haven’t been revealed. Both movies were made while working on GoT, so perhaps he didn’t earn a lot, but his next role puts him back in the big time. On November 5th, 2021, Harington will join the MCU. Harington stars as Dane Whitman, a warrior who wields a mystical sword in the upcoming Eternals movie. The character, who’s also known as the Black Night, may feature in other films, according to famed MCU producer Kevin Feign, “…it is a part that could perhaps grow into something else in the future.” Harington’s not gone on record to say how many movies he’s signed up for, but most MCU actors sign an initial contract covering multiple movies. The salary he’s on for the part has also not been disclosed.

Net Worth

We know he’s earned at least $15.5 million from GoT. We know he spent $2.45 million of that purchasing his 15th-century country home in Ipswich. That would still leave him with $13 million to play with. Harington will be spending some of that on the Grade-II listed house as he has permission to create a new kitchen and install a new bathtub. He’s married to GoT co-star Rose Leslie, who played on-screen lover Ygritte. She’s worth $4 million, so there’s plenty of cash floating about for the pair of them and their baby son, who was born in February 2021.
