Emilia Clarke says there's no gender pay gap with 'Game of Thrones'

Emilia Clarke says there's no gender pay gap with 'Game of Thrones'

Emilia Clarke has teased the fans of Game of Thrones, saying the finale of the fantasy series' last season will be "what none of us think it will be".

GAME OF THRONES star Emilia Clarke looked out of this world at the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Clarke gets emotional with the thought of the show coming to end.

See? They're good. And while Clarke mentioned that a Wookiee would be involved in both stories' endings, we're inclined to think she wasn't telling the truth.

Emilia, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, commanded attention at the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival.

The 31-year-old actress - who plays Kira in the new "Solo: A Star Wars Story" - has rubbished the use of the term "strong women" in the movie industry, calling it sexist. She has pretty "strong" opinions about the use of strong women, noting it's the fact that women often get that if they are playing mentally capable characters or just interesting characters in general and that it frustrates her that the opposite side of the coin is simply a "weak" female characters.

"You break the mold that's put into place and there's a huge amount of work that needs to go into addressing all of the things that need to be addressed".

"So I think it's mainly in the beginning, just be aware of that and going, 'Can you just check?"

"It was my first job, and I was not discriminated against because I was a woman, in my paycheck", said the "mother of dragons" in an interview with Glamour at Cannes Film Festival. "It feels like preparing to leave home". Her characters, along with many other women on television and film right now, are nuanced, so let's take Clarke's note and stop with with the "strong woman" business. It's not too much of a stretch to guess how many times she's already gotten a lot of "strong woman" comments for this one, especially since Solo: A Star Wars Story certainly hasn't spelled out the whole movie in its trailers.
