Why Emilia Clarke Hates Being Asked About Playing a 'Strong Woman'

Since starring as Daenerys Targaryen, the throne-seeking Mother of Dragons, on "Game of Thrones", Clarke has been flooded with questions about what it's like to play a "strong woman".

GAME OF THRONES star Emilia Clarke looked out of this world at the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story. "The end", Clarke said. When asked who emerges as the victor in the Game of Thrones, Clarke told The Hollywood Reporter, "I don't know that I even do now".

However, Clarke also said the last season would be "what none of us think it will be".

Clarke playing her cards close to the vest is not unlike her character in Solo: A Star Wars Story, as Qi'Ra's motivations are hard to place throughout the film as she navigates the seedy underbelly of the galaxy.


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.

"There are lots of different endings that could happen; I think we're doing all of them and we aren't being told which is actually what's going to happen", she further added. "It feels like preparing to leave home". 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).

"You start to dig deep and see where (the gender pay gap) is, rife in the industry". It just doesn't even bear having the conversation, so enough already with the strong women, please... In an interview with Elle, the 31-year-old actress opened up about why she doesn't identify with the term "strong woman", and why she wishes that people would stop describing her characters as that. That's it. Take the strong out of it. Find another adjective, dammit!
