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

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

British actress Emilia Clarke.

Speaking at the event, Emilia opened up on whether Game of Thrones has a gender pay gap.

"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?"

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

The actress was in Cannes for a screening of her film Solo: A Star Wars story where she was joined by Chewbacca on the red carpet.

The filming for the eighth and the final season of Game of Thrones is underway - the epic fantasy series that shows Clarke breaking all the taboos of the patriarchal society while playing a very powerful character of Daenerys Targaryen.

She added to Variety magazine at the "Women In Motion" panel at Cannes Film Festival: "You start to dig deep and see where it is, rife in the industry".

The company said it will also start offering "weekly deep discounts on select best-selling items" for Prime members, too. The move comes less than a year after Amazon announced plans to acquire Austin-based Whole Foods for $13.7 billion .

"I never felt as a girl I couldn't do anything I wanted to do", she said. "Because I have to, do you know what I mean?"

The English actress explained why the usage irked her.

While acknowledging that it could become "muddy" she said: "From an idealistic point of view, it makes complete sense, because then people can be held accountable for things".

"It's really hard because this is a problem that has been around forever so changing it overnight is impossible".

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".

Past the flashes of cameras held by Emilia Clarke, who played in the film a character named Ki RA, woody Harrelson and other participants of the project. "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.

The language used to describe female roles is another area that needs revision, according to Clarke, who seems to have had enough of being asked about portraying "strong women" in her films.
