Emilia Clarke says Game of Thrones will have an unexpected ending

Emilia Clarke says Game of Thrones will have an unexpected ending

Are you telling me there's another option, that there's a weak option?

Since superheroes really started to becoming popular in both big screen and TV storytelling, the phrase "strong women" has started being bandied about a whole lot. You think a lead in a movie is going to be a weak woman? "Enough already with the strong women, please let's just be women!"

GAME OF THRONES star Emilia Clarke looked out of this world at the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Emilia has always been an advocate for the equal treatment of women.She previously told Rolling Stones how she compared women's inequality to racism, in that "you're aware of it but that one day you wake up and think... it's everywhere!".

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.

Are you excited for Solo and what do you make of Clarke's half-joking response to who should play a young Luke? That's it. Take the strong out of it. Find another adjective, dammit!

"It was my first job, and I was not discriminated against because I was a woman, in my paycheck", said the "mother of dragons" in an interview with Glamour at Cannes Film Festival.

In the follow up to #MeToo and Time's Up movement, Clarke's revelation in Cannes has put BBC in the bright spot for leading the trend change.

Game of Thrones also stars Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Iain Glen. She's also played action-heavy characters, like Sarah Connor in Terminator: Genysis.

Directed by Ron Howard, Solo: A Star Wars Story opens in cinemas on May 25.

The actress previously spoke with EW about her character, shedding some light on what motivates Qi'Ra.
