Sophie Turner claims Kit Harrington gets paid three times more than her for 'Game of Thrones'
Sophie Turner believes that it is fair that Kit Harrington gets paid more as he had a bigger storyline than she did in the series
Sophie Turner became a household name after she skyrocketed to fame with her role as Sansa Stark in the popular hit series 'Game of Thrones'. She recently opened up and shared that her co-star Kit Harrington gets paid three times more than she currently earns.
The 23-year-old spoke to Harper's Bazaar and revealed that she feels it is fair that she earns less than Harrington as he has a larger part. Harrington, who plays the role of Jon Snow, earns around £537,000 ($704,290) each week while Turner reportedly takes home around £158,000 ($207,180) each week.
Sophie shared, "Kit got more money than me, but he had a bigger storyline. 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'."
Turner also spoke about her insecurities and said, "Everyone can see what I'm really like in 'Game Of Thrones'. I have a big nose and tiny little eyes and a double chin and that's OK. I'm learning to love my bumpy nose."
Turner has been working in television ever since she was a teen and also opened up on incidents which made her uncomfortable as a result of inappropriate actions of some people in the industry.
Turner shared, "I've had my moments where I've thought in hindsight, 'That was not an OK thing for someone to do', but I've never had anything as extreme as these awful Weinstein cases."
She also opened up on her fiance Joe Jonas and spoke of their upcoming wedding and revealed, "We're trying to keep it as low-key as possible so it's more of an intimate thing." Turner also spoke of how the couple had met and added, "We had a lot of mutual friends and they'd been trying to introduce us for a long time."
"We were following each other on Instagram and he direct-messaged me one fine day, out of the blue. He's the most fun, energetic, positive person I've ever seen. I'm pessimistic, so we balance each other out," she continued. She also spoke about filming the final part of the series and said its "like a death in the family. I'm losing the character I've played so long."
