What Is ‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington’s Net Worth?
Game of Thrones has been the king of television since 2011. The acclaimed fantasy series is the brainchild of author George R.R. Martin and showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. For the past seven seasons, we’ve watched the folks of Westeros battle for a chance at the Iron Throne. There has been bloodshed, scandal, intrigue, and twist and turns that we could have never expected. Now, the acclaimed series is set to come to a close on HBO after an eighth and final season which will debut in April 2019. One of the main characters on the show is Jon Snow. In the beginning, we all assumed Jon was Ned Stark’s bastard, but it turns out his lineage is much more thrilling than that. Jon’s true identity is Aegon Targaryen –the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Ned Stark’s sister, Lyanna Stark. English actor Kit Harington plays Jon. Keep reading to learn about Harington’s net worth, upcoming projects, and his actress wife.
How much does Kit Harington make for Game of Thrones?
On Game of Thrones, Jon Snow might be walking around thinking he’s still the Bastard of Winterfell, but that’s all about to change in the final six episodes of Game of Thrones. In fact, Harington’s Jon has been at the center of nearly everything on the series from the beginning — even if the actor an the audience never realized it.
Before we dive into Harington’s net worth overall, you should know that much of his wealth has come from Game of Thrones. According to The Observer, for the final six episodes of #DemThrones, Harington will pull in $500,000 per episode. We don’t think $3 million is too shabby at all for a shortened season.
Harington earns the same amount as his costars, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister). This amount is up from the $300,000 they were earning per episode in Season 4, though not quite as much as the $900,000 per episode that the cast of The Big Bang Theory takes home.
Kit Harington’s upcoming projects
Since his time on Game of Thrones is finally going to run out, Harington is already preparing for new ventures. In 2017, he starred in the HBO mini-series Gun Powder which followed British activist Guy Fawkes and a group of provincial English Catholics who plan to blow up the House of Lords and kill King James I in the early 17th century.
He also starred in the film, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan which premiered at the 2018 Toronto Film Festival. Coming up, he will lend his voice to the character Eret in 2019’s How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.
What is Kit Harington’s net worth in 2018?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kit Harington is worth $12 million. Though much of his wealth is from his Game of Thrones paychecks, he’s also padded his bank account with endorsement deals. Harington has been the face of Jimmy Choo men’s lines, a spokesman for Nissan’s premium brand Infiniti, and the face of Dolce & Gabbana The One fragrance for men.
Thus far, Harington has put his fat pockets to good use. In 2017, he purchased a £1.75 million 15th-century country home in Ipswich, Suffolk and he’s also an avid philanthropist.
Who is Kit Harington’s wife?
Harington is married to actress Rose Leslie who played the wildling Ygritte and Jon Snow’s love interest on Seasons 2-4 of Game Of Thrones. Harington and Leslie started their on-again, off-again relationship back in 2012 before finally tying the knot on June 23, 2018, at the Rayne Church in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, followed by a reception at the 12th-century Wardhill Castle.
