With all of his hard work over the years, Harmon has amassed quite the fortune. But just how much is the NCIS star really worth?
According to Cheat Sheet, Harmon is paid around $525,000 for every episode of NCIS. That is more money than any of the stars on HBO’s fantasy drama, Game of Thrones, including the show’s lead, Emilia Clarke.
When you factor in how much Harmon makes producing episodes, his earnings jump to around $700,000 per installment. In total, the actor’s fortune is estimated to be at close to $90 million.
Harmon started his acting career with a small role in 1973. He got his first break in the 1997 series, Sam. Apart from NCIS, Harmon is known for his appearances in The West Wing, JAG and Chicago Hope.
Although Harmon has made enough money to retire comfortably, he still enjoys filling up his work schedule. In fact, the actor just signed a contract to executive produce a new series based on John Sandford’s Prey franchise.

The show is about a detective in Minneapolis named Lucas Davenport who fights crime with his good friend, Elle Krueger, who also doubles as a psychology professor and a nun.
Harmon is producing alongside Michael Jaffe and Howard Braunstein, who are known for their work on The Client List.
There is a total of 29 books in the Prey series, so Mark Harmon and company have plenty of work to keep them going for years to come.
