Game of Thrones season 8 Emilia Clarke promises unexpected ending

She said: "On Game of Thrones, I have always been paid the same amount as my male co-stars".

Looks like they do things differently in Westeros: Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen, has said she has never experienced a gender pay gap on the HBO fantasy drama.

"It will be what none of us think it will be", Clarke predicted.

She also called the pay inequality between Claire Foy and Matt Smith on The Crown "shocking".

"And then you start to dig deep, and you start to see where it is - rife in the industry".

Clarke flew to Cannes in the midst of shooting the final season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" - the fantasy series that features her playing Daenerys Targaryen.

United States actor Alden Ehrenreich (L), British actress Emilia Clarke and U.S. director Ron Howard arrive on May 15, 2018 for the screening of the film "Solo: A Star Wars Story".

The star is now wrapping up on filming the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones.

"It was my first job and I was not discriminated against because I was a woman, in my pay check".

"Walking on set, I felt a difference in the room that was really interesting to navigate but then you kind of ease into it and you say 'this is it!'".

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".

"I'm gonna tell you how it feels to play a woman".

But she also warned against an "unnecessarily aggressive" approach.

Clarke gets emotional with the thought of the show coming to end.

The dragon queen will, however, spit fire if one more reporter asks her "How does it feel to play a strong woman?". "You think a lead in a movie is gonna be a weak woman?". "It just doesn't even bear having the conversation, so enough already with the strong women, please", Clarke added.
