Sophie Turner has revealed that her Game of Thrones co-star Kit Harington gets paid more than she does, but it doesn't bother her for a very practical reason.
Speaking to Harper's BAZAAR UK, Turner (AKA Sansa Stark) put it simply that Harington's character Jon Snow has a bigger plot and is involved in more shoots than she is.
The British actress, who actively supports Time's Up and gender equality in the entertainment industry, opened up about how it's "a little tricky" to demand equal pay on the hit HBO show.
"Kit [Harington, who plays her brother Jon Snow, the King in the North] got more money than me, but he had a bigger storyline," Turner told BAZAAR UK. "And for the last series, he had something crazy like 70-night shoots, and I didn’t have that many. I was like, 'You know what...you keep that money.'"
Other GoT stars have talked about how gruelling the night shoots were for Season 8, which lasted for 11 weeks, required 750 people, and were shot in freezing temperatures, Entertainment Weekly reported. Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) called the experience "really miserable."
Turner added that she asks for an inclusion rider in all of her contracts, which is a stipulation where stars can ask for more diverse and equal representation in the cast and crew. That way, Turner can push for a workforce that's comprised of men and women equally. "Now, you see women in the camera departments, producing, directing. It’s exciting," she told the publication.
