At 22, You Won’t Believe ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Maisie Williams’ Net Worth
“Game of Thrones” has ended and it may have left a sour taste in some fans’ mouths but we can all agree that Arya Stark is one of those that showed her fiercest abilities not just during the last bloodshed but in the entirety of the HBO series.
The lady behind the brave gal is Maisie Williams, who, like her character, we saw grow up right before our very eyes. With an impressive performance and a successful show, you might be wondering how much her net worth is nowadays.
‘Game of Thrones’ Break
The English actress practically grew up in front of the camera after she starred on the show when she was just 14 in 2011. In the eight seasons of “Game of Thrones” and the eight years of filming, there’s no doubt how she had evolved along with her character Arya.
Just like her, Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark in the George R.R. Martin-based adaptation, also hopped on board while she was young. This was their first ever big break, which, unsurprisingly, had opened greater opportunities for them.
‘Game of Thrones’ Salary
The “Game of Thrones” finally ended, but for 22-year-old Maisie with a reported net worth of $6 million, the trickle-down of projects had only just begun. While most people her age are still on their first career choice, perhaps finding it hard to thrive paycheck to paycheck, the actress has gotten quite a fat savings account. According to reports, for the final season of the show, she was able to go home with $175,000 per episode, which means she easily earned over $1 million for the final installment.
The same salary was also received by her co-star and real-life friend Sophie for “Game of Thrones” season 8, which is not shabby at all, to be honest. But if you compare the amount to the other stars such as Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow and who reportedly earned $500,000 per episode, it’s just a fraction.
Other Sources of Income
Despite the serious cash Maisie now earns, she initially admitted that it was unexpected because she only wanted to buy herself a new laptop. Little did she know that she won’t just be able to buy herself a laptop, but could purchase more expensive things. In fact, her source of income is not only limited to the “Game of Thrones,” which had become a stepping stone for the actress, which means she can save up for bigger purchases like a property or a car.
When she was just 20, she and producer Dom Santry brainstormed the Daisie app, a platform wherein users can share their creations like photos, visual art, fashion designs, music, and videos. Last year, the beta version was launched and the web app is about to go live this month. It looked promising as the brand was able to secure a $2.5 million funding from investors and Founders Fund.
