How much is Emilia Clarke worth? Richard Madden pays $24k a month for GoT star's luxury LA home
The 33-year-old actor is believed to be living in the two-bedroom home with his friend Froy Gutierrez
'Game of Thrones' actor Richard Madden has moved into the Los Angeles home which was earlier rented out by his 'Game of Thrones' co-star Emilia Clarke. The 33-year-old actor is believed to be living in Clarke's two-bedroom home, which costs a whopping $24,207 (£20,000) a month to rent.
Madden moved into the house with his friend Froy Gutierrez after he moved out of the house that he shared with Brandon Flynn. Madden and Flynn had continued to live together despite having a fallout in November last year. Things between them were so bad that Brandon had asked his bosses at the fashion brand, Versace, not to invite Richard to an event they were throwing at the end of last year, reports The Sun.
The website also reported that Madden has been living with his new roommate in the luxurious home during the pandemic. The information was provided by an insider, who said, "Richard and Brandon bonded over being up-and-coming actors in the industry and decided to share a place while both (were) working in LA. But they have fallen out in the past few months and have cut ties with each other."
"Brandon has made it clear that he doesn't want to see Richard because he asked Brandon to ask bosses at the fashion brand, Versace, not to invite Richard to an event they were throwing at the end of last year," reports the website.
It was during the promotions for his movie 'Rocketman' when he was asked a question about Brandon. "I just keep my personal life personal. I've never talked about my relationships."
The started drifting apart after Richard did not answer this very question about the nature of his relationship with Brandon. A source said, "Richard flew back to LA a few weeks before the lockdown started after filming the new Marvel film, The Eternals, in London." That's when the insider said that he has been living in Emilia's old house. "Since then he's been living in Emilia's old house because it is really nice and is the perfect place to isolate." In addition to that, he seems to have really hit it off with Froy. "He really hit it off with Froy and he's pleased to have company while stuck inside."
"As he is already spending a fortune on the property, he wanted someone to enjoy it with." The actor was supposed to begin his work on Amazon Studios' spy series titled 'Citadel' alongside Priyanka Chopra, but one cannot say if the filming will go ahead as per schedule due to the lockdown.
Clarke had allegedly bought the pad in Los Angeles, which features a swimming pool, for $4,599,406 (£3.8M) in 2016 but she is renting it out for the last two years since she moved back to London.
After 2014, when 'Game of Thrones' had established itself as one of the best series on television, Deadline had reported that Clarke, along with Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau were receiving a per-episode salary of $300,000. With 10 episodes each in Seasons 5 and 6, Emilia made somewhere around $6,000,000. But that is hardly the end of it.
For the final Seasons 7 and 8, Emilia made $6,500,000 raking in more than $12.5M. At the same time, other reports claim that she made $1.1M per episode, earning $14.3M.
Clarke has been making money since before 'Game of Thrones'. Since her appearance in 'Triassic Attack', a made-for-TV movie, she has starred in a total of 12 movies and counting, including major titles like 'Me Before You' (generated $208M worldwide), 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' ($393M globally), and 'Terminator: Genisys', for which she made $6,051,850 (£5M), which was way more than her co-star.
In addition to that, she has been the face of designer brands such as Dolce & Gabanna in 2017 and a Christian Dior jewelery campaign in 2015. All of this makes her worth $13M, according to Money.
