Kit Harington Makes A Comfortable Living Playing Jon Snow
Kit Harington portrays the heroic and honorable Jon Snow. Harington has been involved with the show since episode one, with his character evolving from the Bastard of Winterfell to King of the North, and a key fighter in the battle against the Army of the Dead.
His time on Game of Thrones has turned him into one of the most popular actors on the planet, so it won’t be long before he is involved with another project. For now, he’s probably comfortable raking in around $500,000 for each episode.
