The game just got real.
Game of Thrones is one of the most watched shows in the history of modern television — 7.3 million people watched the highest-rated TV episode of all time Battle of the Bastards on Sunday — so it would make sense that the cast be rewarded for their hard work.
Luckily for the Westeros residents, some of the HBO drama's biggest fan-favorites will be seeing quite the promotion when GoT returns for Season 7A next April.
According to reports, starring cast members had been earning a measly $300,000 per episode, but that's about to get bumped up to a whopping $500,000 for 2017!
But there's a catch… only FIVE of the series' iconic players will be getting the bonus!
So, who do U think deserves almost double their salary for Season 6??
