Game of Thrones Actors Extend Contracts
The principle actors of Game of Thrones
have extended their contracts with HBO for seven seasons. Though the series was renewed back in April for two additional seasons, taking the show to a sixth season, the actors are locked down for a very likely and potential season seven. With this extension comes an impressive pay raise for the main performers (Kit Harington, Lena Heady, Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) that will make them some of the highest-paid actors on cable television.
Even though they are now contracted to be in seven seasons of the fantasy series, it doesn’t mean that their characters will, without a doubt, survive the next two seasons. The books are still being written and its author, George R.R. Martin and the show’s writers have shown no mercy when killing off beloved characters. However, with the latest addition of flashbacks to the series, there will be no problem in their involvement if that e the case. We don’t know if this potential seventh season is a likely ending, as there will likely be seven books of the Song of Ice and Fire
series of which the show is based on, or how the stories might be extended or condensed, but what we can be sure about is that the fantastic actors who brought these people to life will be sticking around and being compensated handsomely.
