#MeToo is here to stay: 'Game Of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke

Speaking at Kering Woman in Motion at the Cannes Film Festival, she said: 'On Game Of Thrones, I have always been paid the same amount as my male co-stars.

Are you excited for Solo and what do you make of Clarke's half-joking response to who should play a young Luke? "It really feels like preparing to leave home".

Turning to her work on Solo, Clarke spoke about her excitement of being involved with Star Wars: "My brother was a huge fan, he's my big brother".

"Walking on set, I felt a difference in the room that was really interesting to navigate but then you kind of ease into it and you say 'this is it!'". "Take the "strong" out of it, find another adjective, damn it", Clarke said. For an instance, she pointed out at male leads, who were rarely referred to as "strong men", unless they are strong physically. Do you know what I mean?

She said, "It will be what none of us think it will be".

With Solo: A Star Wars Story now less than a couple of weeks away, attention is starting to turn to the movie's release and it's stars.

Gender discrimination will not disappear overnight but the #MeToo and Time's Up movements are "here to stay", Games of Thrones star Emilia Clarke said Tuesday.

"It's going to be something that I found, that I'll choose how to shape and put all my creative juices behind", she said, highlighting the importance of making smart business decisions as a young, self-employed actress, particularly at a time when the role of female creatives in the industry is radically shifting.

Clarke flew to Cannes in the midst of shooting the final season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" - the fantasy series that features her playing Daenerys Targaryen.

"It starts with the little things, when you say an opinion or idea or concept and it doesn't get picked up in a discussion and then a dude says it and suddenly we're doing it!" "So when there would come a job where that was maybe being discussed, again, it's shocking - actually shocking". 'You just start to fight harder for that stuff'.
