The world might turn upside down for a world renowned star, whose salary details become a public affair, especially when it is done by her ex-husband. Game of Thrones star Lena Headey aka Cersei Lannister is in news these days for the same reason. Her ex-husband lately revealed her income details over the internet. The world knows everything now about Cersei apart from her epic depiction of the character in Game of Thrones. But can you image what must have happened after this.

Headey plays the mostly unapologetic head of the seven kingdoms Cersei Lannister in the HBO series, and it seems she's getting quite a lucrative deal for her troubles. The actress, who split from her former husband Peter Loughran last year, is currently involved in a custody battle over their only child together, 6-year-old son Wylie, the eldest of Headey's two children.

It is also reported that Loughran is asking his Game of Thrones ex to pay $40,000 of his attorney's fees, saying he cannot afford to do so himself, and states that she earns an "estimated more than $1 million per episode of Game of Thrones".He must be careful enough then. Remember the last time someone tried to cross the lady in Game of Thrones?

However, this is not the very first time when Headey's salary has come into public display. In November, this year it was revealed that Headey and some of her GoT co-stars had "banded together and recently concluded a renegotiation that will pay them each $1.1 million per episode for seven episodes of season seven and six episodes of season eight". These had the show's biggest names such as Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage. It is also been revealed that the Game Of Thrones gang has made enough money, lot more than the walking dead team.
