Clarke said a way to combat the pay disparity is to "be aware of it", address it "in the beginning" and "fight harder for that stuff".

Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke says there's no gender pay gap issue on the show.

In a candid talk - organized as part of Kering's ongoing "Women in Motion" talk series - Clarke spoke of the creative process of building her "Star Wars" persona.

Emilia's comments come after it was claimed Claire Foy would be receiving £200,000 in back pay to plug the gender pay gap on the Netflix series in which she played Queen Elizabeth, as it was revealed she was paid £10,000 less per episode than her co-star Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip. Are you telling me there's another option, that there's a weak option?

"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.

The actress has made a decision to keep interest fans of action - a amusing and cute photo in which she embraces with her on-screen lover and a relative. Emilia said in an interview with Variety.

She said, "It will be what none of us think it will be". "It was wonderful. I texted everyone I knew". 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.

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.

Emilia Clarke is sick and exhausted of being asked about how it feels to play "a strong woman". You think a lead in a movie is going to be a weak woman?

No conversation these days with a leading Hollywood star is incomplete without a discussion about living in the post-Weinstein era and vying more strongly for women's rights.
