However, Reedus will eventually earn more than  GoT actors as he will feature in a substantial amount more episodes than Game Of Thrones actors. The Walking Dead is showing no signs of slowing down and is seems that AMC want to keep the show running for as long as possible as it is by far their most popular show and it makes them the most money.
