Emilia Clarke On The 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Director Shake-Up

Harrison Ford Surprises Alden Ehrenreich

But by "continuing to apply gentle pressure" women can prevent the movement losing momentum, she said.

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 31-year-old actor, who is attending the Cannes Film Festival, where her new film "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is screening, said the usage of the phrase is particularly useless due to a presence of a female lead in a film.

And those numbers can't even quantify some of his most impactful moments. "We are really glad he's on our team". Smart talked about the play after the game, calling Smith a bully and a dirty player who had to be dealt with.

In a candid talk - organized as part of Kering's ongoing "Women in Motion" talk series - Clarke spoke of the creative process of building her "Star Wars" persona.

Are you excited to see Emilia Clarke's Qi'ra in action? "So I think it's mainly in the beginning, just be aware of that and going, 'Can you just check?'" she said about negotiating pay. "No one really wants to know, people are always like 'Tell me, but don't tell me.' It will certainly be what none of us expect it to be". She supports U.S. actress Frances McDormand's rousing Oscars call for clauses imposing quotas for diversity in film casts and crews. But she also warned against an "unnecessarily aggressive" approach. "If you're only asking women, it's like we're just show ponies".

The dragon queen will however spit fire if one more reporter asks her "How does it feel to play a strong woman?"

"You break the mold that's put into place and there's a huge amount of work that needs to go into addressing all of the things that need to be addressed. It just doesn't even bear having the conversation, so enough already with the strong women, please", Clarke added.
