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

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

The 31-year-old wowed wearing an off-the-shoulder dress which skimmed the floor at the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Emilia Clarke is sick and exhausted of being asked about how it feels to play "a strong woman". "Are you telling me there's another option, that there's a weak option?" she said.

"We can say 'Hey guys, on a really basic level you haven't filled your quota so hi, I'm here to fill your quota!'".

"Take the "strong" out of it, find another adjective, damn it".

Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival where she was promoting the latest episode in the Star Wars franchise, Clarke said: "It's really hard because this is a problem that has been around forever so changing it overnight is impossible". I'm just playing women. "It really feels like preparing to leave home...that's exciting, but it's sad and scary all at the same time", she says, about bidding farewell to the mother of dragons role.

While she kept the make-up minimal, her neatly teased chignon was reminiscent of the classics, and we think her look was quite interesting.

"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".

The actor also said there are no strong men characters in films, unless they are physically strong. "Unless I'm packing guns I don't know about, then let's change that".

"Or just ask boys how it feels to be strong", Clarke replied.

In an interview for Kering Women in Motion at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday, where her film "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is screening, Clarke said that her starring role on "Game of Thrones" comes with a gender-neutral paycheck.

Emilia said the discoveries were "shocking, actually shocking".

"And then you start to dig deep, and you start to see where it is - rife in the industry".
