How Much Do True Blood’s Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, and Alexander Skarsgard Make?
Sometimes we get so caught up in the Bon Temps world that we forget True Blood is just a television show. The actors have tapped into their characters so well throughout the past six seasons that it doesn’t seem like supernatural fiction.
According to TV Guide's “Who Earns What?” annual salary survey, Anna, husband Stephen, and co-star A. Skars all make $275k per episode, making them some of the highest-paid stars surveyed from the cable network.
Comparatively, Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey make about half of True Blood's cast, bringing in $150k per episode.
The survey didn’t list specifics for any of the other True Blood cast members, but chances are, none of them stack up to the show’s starring trio. Last year, they only made $200,000 per episode, meaning they got a bump of $75,000 for Season 6 — even though it was a shortened season!
