‘GAME OF THRONES’ STAR NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU ORDERED TO PAY EX-MANAGER $2 MILLION

Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has been ordered to pay his former manager a little more than $2 million.

According to court documents, the star was hit with the order by an arbitrator in his dispute with Jill Littman, who managed the actor until he fired her in 2015.

Coster-Waldau made $942,857 for each of the seven episodes of the epic drama and for the eighth season was bumped to over a million per episode. The actor also got $1.5 million as an advance on a share of the show's profits plus he earned other bonuses.

Coster-Waldau filed counter-claims against Littman for fraud but those were denied. He and his lawyer operated under an oral agreement that provided no post-termination commissions.
