Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke says she's getting equal pay

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. So enough already with the "strong woman" please".

"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.

Clarke spoke only of her salary, but made no mention of her female "GoT" co-stars. I get very frustrated with that in particular because you don't get strong men, unless you are like physically strong.

The actress is best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on the hit HBO show "Game of Thrones". She has pretty "strong" opinions about the use of strong women, noting it's the fact that women often get that if they are playing mentally capable characters or just interesting characters in general and that it frustrates her that the opposite side of the coin is simply a "weak" female characters.

'It will be what none of us think it will be, ' she said.
