  • Game of Thrones Actor Emilia Clarke Hates the Phrase'Strong Women. Know Why

Mashable first noted the lack of pay gap on Game of Thrones in 2017, and Emilia Clarke confirmed at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival that this has always been the show's standard.

The "Game of Thrones" star went on to point out that male leads didn't get branded with the same adjective unless they looked physically fit.

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

On what she would like to be referred to instead, Emilia explained: "Let's just be women or how does it feel to play a female lead in a blockbuster movie or how does it feel to play someone with power".

Atletico, Marseille Brace Up For Epic Europa League Clash
With the final set for Lyon , Marseille will have to cast aside any demons they have faced in their recent trips up the Rhone. Marseille have won only four of their 15 UEFA competition matches against Spanish opposition, losing eight.

She said: "You start to dig deep and see where it is, rife in the industry".

The actress, who plays dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO fantasy drama, now wrapping up the final ever season; she claimed not to know how it all will end, but predicted that no-one would be able to predict it. "The end", Clarke said. It's exciting yet sad and scary. It's really opened my eyes about what I am allowed to have an opinion about, and what I'm allowed to stand up for myself about.

'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. But we must remember that the movement is working harder than ever and we continue to put gentle pressure on the industry", Clarke said.

Emilia told the host that the movement hadn't died down, but that "changing it overnight would be impossible". You would never refer to a male lead as being as "strong male character" as opposed to any other kind of male character. It just doesn't even bear having the conversation, so enough already with the strong women, please. Starring on what has been dubbed the best television show of all time, Clarke has no issue with keeping Solo set secrets to herself, telling Us, "I'm very well versed in not telling anyone anything about the movie or the television show that I'm on, so it's just more of that".
