How Rich is Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark From ‘Game Of Thrones’? The Answer Might Surprise You
It’s finally here: the end of ‘Game of Thrones’. Whether fans got the conclusion they’ve been waiting for or not, they’d surely be missing their favorite characters now that the show has aired its final episode.
One of the main characters that the fandom will surely miss the most is Arya Stark, who’s played by 22-year-old British actress Maisie Williams. All of social media will be abuzz with theories surrounding her ending but today let’s focus on just how much the actress who played her earned for her excellent portrayal of the beloved character.
According to reports from IndieWire, the young actress’ salary for the show’s final season came to an impressive $175,000 per episode. Doing the math, that’s a total of $1 million for the final season alone.
Now, you may think that the amount is quite small compared to her castmates, (her older brother Kit Harington aka Jon Snow gets $500,000 per episode), but it’s still quite an achievement considering the fact that Game of Thrones is actually her first ever professional acting gig!
Besides, Williams herself was quite shocked at how big her salary is. In an interview, she admitted that in the beginning all she cared about was earning enough money to buy herself a laptop. Her stepdad even joked that she could buy a couple of laptops with her money just fine.
It’s pretty clear that Williams is a hard worker. Aside from her Game of Thrones salary, she makes money with her very own app called Daisie, which she founded two years ago at the age of 20. The app is meant to serve as a platform for creatives to find other creatives they can collaborate and develop ideas with.
According to the young star, her creation is especially targeted for other young artists who are in the early stages of their careers and are looking for ways to make it into the scene. Daisie, although in the works since 2017, is still on its beta version at the moment. However, its web app is set to be launched soon within the year.
With that said, it would quite difficult to actually know how much money she’s earned through the venture at the moment.
It seems like the actress isn’t one to put all her eggs in one basket though. She’s continuing to work on new movie projects while also handling her very own business.
So, Arya Stark fans need not fret as they’d be seeing her soon in another fantasy feature. She’ll soon be seen on the big screen as part of a new Marvel film, ‘The New Mutants”. Here, she retains some aspects of her Stark heritage as the mutant Rahne Sinclar also called Wolfsbane, a Scottish girl who has the power to turn herself into a wolf.
As of latest, Williams’ net worth currently stands at $6 million but might increase soon once the film is released.
