Game of Thrones is one of HBO’s most successful series ever, garnering high ratings and multiple accolades for both the network and the show’s stars throughout its run. So it should come as no surprise that its cast members are also some of the highest-paid actors on cable TV. But of the show’s sizable ensemble, which stars rake in the biggest salary? Here’s how much the GoT actors are making now.

Ahead of Season 7, HBO has undergone renegotiations with much of the cast, ponying up huge raises in exchange for the actors extending their respective contracts through an expected Season 8. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network employs a tiered system to compensate its GoT stars, with those in Tier A bringing in the biggest bucks. So who is on which tier? This is how it all breaks down.
