Lena Headey net worth and salary: Lena Headey is an English actress who has a net worth of $12 million. Lena Headey was born in Bermuda, and grew up in Bermuda and Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. She began acting while in high school, and first gained notice appearing in a production with the Royal National Theatre when she was seventeen. She made the transition to film work in the early 90s, and since then she has appeared in a wide variety of films and television series. She played supporting roles in such projects as, “Waterland”, “Century”, and “The Remains of the Day”, and then began appearing in co-starring and starring roles with 1994’s, “The Jungle Book”. She is most widely recognized for her performances in such high-profile projects as, “Mrs. Dalloway”, “The Brother Grimm”, “300”, “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”, and “Game of Thrones”. She is next slated to appear in the big-screen adaptation of the best-selling book, “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”.

In April 2013, Lena Headey made headlines when she announced that she was nearly bankrupt after a lengthy and bitter divorce battle. Despite being on one of TV’s most popular shows and earning $150,000 per episode at the time, Lena reportedly only had $5 in her bank account at the time. Obviously that will go up with time, but was shocking for many fans to learn.

Game of Thrones Salary: For the final two seasons of Game of Thrones, 14 episodes that aired between July 2017 and May 2019, Lena Headey’s salary episode was $1.1 million. That works out to $14.3 million for those two seasons. That per episode salary is currently the sixth highest amount any actor has ever earned on TV show (tied with several of her GOT co-stars). For the 20 episodes she shot for seasons 5 and 6, she earned $500,000 per episode, $10 million total. Lena’s total earnings from the entire run of Game of Thrones likely top $30 million before taxes.
