Emilia Clarke says that the #MeToo movement needs work to be sustained

Emilia Clarke says that the #MeToo movement needs work to be sustained”

Emilia Clarke has revealed she has always enjoyed pay parity with her male Game Of Thrones co-stars.

Clarke also addressed the director shake-up during the filming of the movie, which shifted to Ron Howard halfway through production.

"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!"

'It will be what none of us think it will be, ' she said.

Emilia, who has been an advocate for the equal treatment of women, told the host that she felt the movement hadn't died down but it would take constant work to see change unfold.

"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.

'It really feels like preparing to leave home, ' she said.

'So that's exciting, but it's sad and scary all at the same time. Are you telling me there's another option, that there's a weak option?

Speaking in Cannes 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". But she also warned against an "unnecessarily aggressive" approach. Is Waller-Bridge secretly tapping her on the shoulder in between takes? "It just doesn't even bear having the conversation, so enough already with the strong women, please", Clarke added.

'It was my first job and I was not discriminated against because I was a woman, in my paycheck'. "If you're only asking women, it's like we're just show ponies".
