Sophie Turner wholeheartedly agrees in equal pay for equal work.
From demanding gender parity on her projects to supporting the #MeToo movement, Sophie Turner’s stance is clear.
But on the set of Game of Thrones, the circumstances are an entirely different story.
Speaking to the UK edition of Harper’s Bazaar, the actress, who plays Sansa Stark on the hit show, revealed that she was paid considerably less than her co-star Kit Harington, who is best known as Jon Snow.

According to figures provided by the Daily Mail, Sophie was paid three times less than her male co-star throughout the series.
But for Sophie, it’s not exactly an issue.
Admitting that it’s “a little tricky” to demand equal pay, Sophie explained that she is comfortable with her salary on Game of Thrones.
“Kit [Harington] got more money than me, but he had a bigger storyline,” Sophie told Harper’s Bazaar.
“And for the last series, he had something crazy like 70 night shoots, and I didn’t have that many,” she added.
“I was like, ‘You know what… you keep that money.”
