Warning: contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season eight, episode five.
Starring in Game of Thrones is not bad for your career - or your bank balance.
The lead cast all negotiated significant pay increases for the final season. Lena Headey played Cersei Lannister for all eight seasons of the hit fantasy drama, and Fox News broke down how much she earned per minute for the final series.
Game of Thrones' final season is 434 minutes total, in which Headey appears for only 25 of those minutes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, her salary is around $1.2 million (about £930,000), just like her co-stars Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harington and Peter Dinklage.
This means Headey took home about £37,000 for every minute she appeared on screen.
Of course, she would have acted in far more than 25 minutes-worth of footage, even though that's all that aired, considering most scenes are shot multiple times from various angles and in different locations, and many shots are edited out altogether.
Season eight's fifth episode saw Cersei finally get her comeuppance, which means that the actress had to bit an emotional farewell to the character that she's played for the best part of a decade.
"There she goes. It’s been fun, and bonkers," Headey wrote on Instagram after Cersei met her demise. "I loved her. I am grateful for the opportunity. Massively thankful for your encouraging and supportive love along the way. And now her watch is ended (I know she’d never make it, Nights watch wouldn’t have her .. but still..)."
