How much was Tessa Thompson paid per episode for 'Westworld'?

The 'Thor: Love and Thunder' star who plays Charlotte Hale, was one of the characters to die in season 2, and although the trailer of the upcoming season does see Thompson, it is to be noted that she was killed by Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood). Per a Stylecaster report, this means she wasn't part of the season 3 chatter.

One of the reports by The Hollywood reporter said Thompson was part of the second-tier cast, meaning she would earn relatively lesser than the major characters. The outlet estimates her to make "less or around the $250,000 per episode mark," tying with Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, and Ed Harris. Even if she does make lesser than the other characters, the larger picture is the estimated net worth that totals up to $4 million that's now surely a lot more considering she's playing a major role in her upcoming MCU flick.
