Game of Thrones Stars Sign on for Season 7

at . Comments

Winter may be coming, but the Game of Thrones cast will be okay;

They can afford all the winter coats and cups of hot chocolate they can find.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the stars of this HBO epic have received "huge raises" in exchange for signing on for Season 7.

The raises kick in immediately, with the actors and actresses filming Season 5 as we type.

In the middle of Game of Thrones Season 4, HBO came out and renewed the smash series for both Season 5 and Season 6.

Last years, the epic topped The Sopranos as HBO's most-watched series in terms of average gross viewership and it shows no signs of slowing down.

However, creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have hinted strongly on multiple occasions that Game of Thrones will conclude after Season 7.

Based on this report, main stars - such a Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau - negotiated their new terms in tandem.

Those in the "B Tier" - such as Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams - will make less than their counterparts, but will still see a healthy increase in pay going forward.

Game of Thrones will return with new episodes in either late March or April.

Game of Thrones Quotes

Tyrion: Let me give you some advice bastard. Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.
Jon: What the hell do you know about being a bastard?
Tyrion: All dwarfs are bastards in their father's eyes.

I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.

Tyrion Lannister
