2. Peter Dinklage – $10 Million
It should be a crying shame that the richest actor on a show like Game of Thrones is not from York, London, Scotland, or Canterbury. Peter Dinklage did not study at some school that was named after William Shakespeare, appear in plays throughout the West End in London, or anything like his co-stars. The richest person on the entire television show is a guy from New Jersey with dwarfism.
This is what makes Dinklage’s story so amazing. Among all of these amazing and accomplished actors, the shortest, oddest looking guy in the entire bunch managed to eek out the highest riches of them all. Keep in mind that roles for people like Dinklage are rare. Their height is often just a punchline for all of the other actors, often forcing guys like Dinklage to typecast themselves to a ton of competition and a lot of disappointment. For Dinklage however, his menacing looks, deep voice, and commitment to his craft have made him easily the most popular character on the show.
