Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke today took part in Variety magazine's Women in Motion talks where she gave her thoughts on the sustainability of the #MeToo movement.

Her first big break was on HBO's wildly successful Game of Thrones - about to enter its eighth and final series - where she says she has always been paid the same as her co-stars. However, it's pretty chastely - violent passion and the chemistry between the stars only on the screen, but in real life, Harington, who is about to marry his other partner on the series, unusual women don't ever look (I hope).

She said that recent revelations of pay inequality, like the discovery that Claire Foy was paid less than Matt Smith on "The Crown", were "shocking, actually shocking".

"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!" "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. "You just start to fight harder for that stuff".


Asked about how it feels to think about bidding goodbye to the fan favorite role of the mother of dragons, which she had been playing for last seven seasons, Clarke said, "It really feels like preparing to leave home.that's exciting, but it's sad and scary all at the same time".

In the dark: The actress, who plays dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO fantasy drama, now wrapping up the final ever season; she claimed not to know how it all will end, but predicted that no-one would be able to predict it.

Speaking of Game of Thrones, the 31-year-old actress said that she did not know how all the clashes for the throne will come to an end.
