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

Emilia Clarke spills the beans on 'GOT' finale

The actor fell short in his attempt to spend some QT with the GoT star who plays Dragon Queen Daenerys Targaryen.

"You break the mould ...and then there's a huge amount of work that goes into addressing all that needs to be addressed", she said, adding that quotes could be brought into place for women and minorities in films and television.

"Unless I'm packing guns I don't know about, then let's change that", she continued.

Yes, Emilia Clarke has watched that episode of Game of Thrones with the unknown bidder who laid down a whopping $160,000 for the honor at a January auction.

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.

Clarke, who made her comments during an interview at Cannes, said actors need to be attentive during negotiations for roles.

"That's exciting, but it's sad and scary all at the same time".

England vs. Pakistan: Jos Buttler in squad for first Test
Smith said: 'With Jack Leach missing out through injury, the selection panel wanted to invest opportunity in a young spin bowler. Jos Buttler has been recalled to the England Test team for the first clash with Pakistan .


Things aren't all glitz and glamour for Qi'ra, Clarke promises, as she also makes good on the "femme fatale" persona that has previously been used to describe the character.

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.

She pointed to education, the imposing of contractual obligations in terms of equality in the workplace and certain quotas regarding the representation of female directors in key competitions, as important next steps to take. "Find another adjective damn it", the young actress said.

"'How does it feel to play a strong woman?' I'll tell you how it feels to play a woman, the end".

"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?" Why call her strong?

Emilia's choice of attire perfectly showcased her slender frame as she posed on the red carpet. But ask some dudes what they are wearing, too. "You just start to fight harder for that stuff".
