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

Harrison Ford Surprises Alden Ehrenreich

The diminutive Briton, revered by Throne fans as Queen Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons, has been outspoken about sexism in Hollywood.

'So I think it's mainly in the beginning, just be aware of that and going, "Can you just check?' she said of handling negotiations". "I put in a lot of research to determine my character, there's so much material if you want to dig in".

The 31-year-old actress stars as Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO fantasy drama, and has said she has never experienced gender inequality when it comes to her pay on the show.

But by "continuing to apply gentle pressure" women can prevent the movement losing momentum, she said. As for what the future holds, she revealed that she feels sad and excited at the same time about leaving her most famous role behind. "And then when they wanted me to be in it, I'm like, 'What? OK!"

Outside of her ongoing movie projects, Clarke is also dipping her toes in screenwriting and plans to start her own production company in a bid to "tell really good stories".

A self-proclaimed feminist and supporter of the #MeToo movement, Clarke quickly turned the conversation to the ongoing issue, talking of the importance of maintaining its momentum.

Clarke could hardly contain herself while gleefully reliving the moment. "This has been a problem that has been around forever, so we can't solve it overnight". Is Waller-Bridge secretly tapping her on the shoulder in between takes?

"Let's just be women", she said, suggesting alternative questions could be, "How does it feel to play a female lead in a big blockbuster movie?" or "How does it feel to play someone with power?"

"'How does it feel to play a strong woman?' I'll tell you how it feels to play a woman, the end". "Take the "strong" out of it, find another adjective, damn it", Clarke said. We are on the red carpet and someone has lent me a dress, so it's fine for me to say who I'm wearing.

"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!"
