HBO’s hit drama series “Game of Thrones” may be in the run for a seventh season.
The stars of the show are signed through only six seasons, but Hollywood Reporter learned that they have completed an extensive renegotiation of their contracts, including an option for a seventh season.
The cast of the show is set to receive raises for the last two seasons (and the possible Season 7) that are so big that it will make them among the highest paid cast members on cable TV.
Based on the best-selling books by George R.R Martin, “Game of Thrones” was guaranteed through Season 6 after contracts were renewed back in April. Season 7is still up in the air, but given the amount of fans the show has it is most likely to get the green light.
All actors in the show may receive raises, but the top actors will get the highest raises and vice versa. Raises for everyone, however, are expected to be significant being that “Game of Thrones” is the biggest show on HBO.
The series has one of the largest casts on TV. HBO’s employees are on a tier system, where the stars on the top tier gets the most compensation. The top, or A tier includes Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
The B tier is said to include Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and a few others are paid less than the top A tier.
But there is no guarantee that an actor will live long on the show. “Game of Thrones” is notorious for killing off characters and the book series is still being written.
“Game of Thrones” is based on Martin’s books, which means that depending on what Martin writes next, the stars may lose their jobs and their new big paychecks before Season 7.
Season 5 of “Game of Thrones” premieres in April 2015.

Now that her tantrum-happy son Joffrey is dead (spoiler alert), Cersei (Lena Headey) has taken her rightful place as Game of Thrones’ public enemy no. 1. Arguably, the Queen Regent has always been the HBO series’ biggest villain, but in season 4, she kicked things up a notch. Blindsided by the death of her son, Cersei adamantly condemned her brother Tyrion for Joffrey’s murder, sentencing him to death. Plus, there’s that whole having-sex-with-her-brother-next-to-their-dead-son’s-corpse thing.
I’m so happy to launch the official trailer for Lena’s new project “Low Down”. Check it out, it’s awesome!

When it comes to the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, there is not much that they can actually do anymore that will actually shock us as viewers. Sure, there are things that they could do which will surprise us but, when it comes to actually shocking us, they have pretty much done anything and everything already, in their four seasons of the show.
Game of Thrones has become renowned for showing a lot of nudity in a lot of their episodes and it looks like we are in for plenty more when Game of Thronesseason five hits our television screens next year. One character that we are going to see in the nude is Cersei Lannister, played by Lena Headey, with the character being disempowered and forced to walk down the street naked.
There has been plenty of talk about the Lena Headey nude scene in Game of Thrones season five, including the amount of money it cost to shoot. It was revealed that it cost $200,000 to shoot the scene, which was shot over four days. The reason for this is because shooting the scene attracted a big crowd, requiring extra security, while they also needed extra crew members, plus the local businesses had to be paid to close down during shooting.
That is not all though. The scene was shot in Croatia and they were hoping to shoot Lena Headey walking naked out of the Church of St. Nicholas, which would act as Cersei Lannister coming out of The Great Sept of Baelor. However, the Croatian film board refused to let it happen, so they had to shoot the scene with the Church in the background, then build a set to act as the inside. It all soon adds up.
