In addition, she made a total of around $6,000,000 for seasons 5 and 6 of Game of Thrones. The American fantasy drama television series has made the English actress a rich woman. For the entire run of the show, she may have made as much as $30 million before taxes.

“On Game of Thrones, I have always been paid the same amount as my male costars,” Emilia Clarke revealed at Cannes in 2018. “It was my first job, and I was not discriminated against because I was a woman, in my paycheck.”

Emilia Clarke has also made a small fortune from endorsement deals with Dior and Dolce & Gabbana.

In 2020, she became the first brand ambassador for Clinique Laboratories, an American manufacturer of skincare, cosmetics, toiletries, and fragrances. ”

“The brand feels fresh and relatable and universal, and those are the traits I believe in,” Clarke said about Clinique in a statement. It’s not known how much she’s being paid to promote Clinique’s custom-fit hydrating system, Clinique iD.

The British actress even looked like a million dollars in a custom Balmain dress with Niwaka jewelry, Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Valextra clutch at the 2019 Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Not even a debilitating foot injury could keep Emilia Clarke from looking her best at a movie premiere!

While promoting Terminator Genisys in 2015, the then 28-year-old actress used crutches for a mysterious injury. Despite this, Emilia attended the Berlin premiere of the highly anticipated film in towering stiletto sandals!

Although the dress wasn’t entirely flattering, Emilia looked chic as ever with her freshly cut hair and bright red lips.

She even managed to ditch her crutches, opting instead to rely on some human assistance to help her through the crowd.

Would you wear heels after suffering a foot injury? We understand the need to be fashionable, but we hope Emilia didn’t further damage her feet.

While we weren’t able to find her exact pair of Balenciaga sandals, we found a similar style from the brand at Nordstrom that features more sensible heels.
