Lena Headey’s Game Of Thrones Salary Exposed Over Custody Battle

Her husband has asked her to pay for his legal fees.

Lena Headey’s enormous Game Of Thrones salary may have just been exposed in a custody battle with her ex-husband over their son.

Peter Loughran has asked Headey to pay for his $52,000 legal fees, arguing that she is better placed to pay for it given her high earnings.

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the main cast (Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) earn upwards of $1 million (USD) for each episode of the show. This is even higher than the previously estimated amount ($500,000).

TMZ is reporting that according to court documents, he thinks Headey should pay because he doesn’t have a steady job.

Headey is arguing that she should get custody of their son Wylie as she has to move to the UK for work. However Loughran argues that he doesn’t believe she still has work in the UK and she shouldn’t need to take him there.
