"On Game of Thrones, I have always been paid the same amount as my male co-stars", she said, according to Variety. She shot to fame because of the character she plays in the fantasy drama and naturally, feels sad about it all coming to an end.

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".

The actress, who has a prominent role in "Solo: A Star Wars Story", said the topic "doesn't even bear having a conversation" and asked journalists and publications alike to "please" give up using the word "strong" to describe a female lead. You're telling me that there's another option?

While she kept the make-up minimal, her neatly teased chignon was reminiscent of the classics, and we think her look was quite interesting.

During the interaction, Clarke slammed the journalists for their usage of the phrase "strong women" as she said the usage was sexist for a female lead. "Take the strong out of it. Find another adjective, dammit!" Do you know what I mean? "So I think it's mainly in the beginning, just be aware of that and going, 'Can you just check?,'" she said. "Unless I'm packing guns I don't know about, then let's change that". "I'm just playing women".

Speaking about pay negotiations, she added: "You start to dig deep and see where it is, rife in the industry".

While walking the crimson carpet for a screening of Solo: A Star Wars Story with fellow movie stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Thandie Newton, it was impossible to miss Clarke's buoyant smile.

Most of Clarke's time is being invested in the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones in which she plays the "dragon queen" Daenerys Targaryen. "So when there would come a job where that was maybe being discussed, again, it's shocking - actually shocking".
