The British Game of Thrones actress plays supporting character Qi'ra in the Star Wars origin story for popular character Han Solo, but she's clearly stealing the show during this promo tour.

'On Game of Thrones, I have always been paid the same amount as my male co-stars, ' she said.

Clarke also addressed the director shake-up during the filming of the movie, which shifted to Ron Howard halfway through production. But by "continuing to apply gentle pressure" women can prevent the movement losing momentum, she said.

Cavs aiming to be better in Game 2 vs. Celtics
After surviving the testy Milwaukee Bucks in seven games they quickly dispatched the much-hyped Philadelphia 76ers in five. The Boston crowd will be electric, and the Celtics will put up another great performance to take a 2-0 series lead.

'It really feels like preparing to leave home, ' she said.

'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". It's exciting yet sad and scary. Making sure that everybody is heard in the industries that need to be heard and making sure that we are doing everything we can as quickly as possible but correctly so that this is a change that will stay. Are you telling me there's another option, that there's a weak option? But she also warned against an "unnecessarily aggressive" approach.

She pointed to education, the imposing of contractual obligations in terms of equality in the workplace and certain quotas regarding the representation of female directors in key competitions, as important next steps to take. "Enough already with the strong women, please let's just be women".

'It was my first job and I was not discriminated against because I was a woman, in my paycheck'. "And we got to revisit stuff that normally you don't get to have a second chance on", Clarke explained to Variety.
