As the final season of Game of Thrones is approaching towards us and we couldn’t keep the calms, there is something Emilia Clarke has to say to us. Recently during an interview on the Red Carpet of the Academy Awards, Emilia Clarke spilled some exciting information for the fans.
It is no surprise that Emilia Clarke is a huge feminist. She just finished the final shooting for Game of Thrones season 8 and got her final paycheck. When she got asked about her pay, she said: “I get paid the same as my guy friends, we made sure of that.”. Yes, apparently the Khaleesi is not behind even in the real world. She manages to work and get paid equally as the men in the industry.
During the shooting of season 5 and 6, the lead cast that includes Kit Harrington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, and Nikolaj Coster – Waldau, were paid USD 300,000. Whereas in season 7, the five of them asked for an increase and got themselves a USD 500,000 deal. Clarke made sure that she is getting paid equally as her male co-stars.
It is not it. Emilia Clarke was also asked about the final season that is coming up and she said: “It’s going to be huge, that much everyone needs to know. It took us a long time to film this one for a very good reason. But I think there’s going to be some things… I know there’s going to be some things in this last season that will shock people,”. Fans are really excited and even marked their calendars for April 14th. Game of Thrones always had the biggest audience waiting for them and it is one of the highest grossing series of all time. No wonder George R.R. Martin is considered a magician writer. He managed to engage billions of people around the world in his series.
On one hand, fans are excited for the return of the show after 2 years but on the other, they are also sad because this is going to be the last season and there will be no Game of Thrones from next year. Not just the fans but the stars are sad about this fact as well. Emilia Clarke posted a picture when she finished with her final shooting and it had us with major feels.
We cannot wait for April to come by and bless us with the final and most awaited season of Game of Thrones. Will it be Jon Snow sitting on the throne or will it be Daenerys Targaryen?
