Emilia Clarke for Vanity Fair Magazine

Posted on May 24, 2018

“Game of Thrones” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story” star Emilia Clarke covers the Summer 2018 issue of Vanity Fair magazine photographed by Craig McDean and styles by Jessica Diehl.


On the pressure to do well in “Solo”: “I hope we did it good, then, because people have all this gossip,” Clarke says. “I don’t want people to go, ‘That’s the bit where it all went wrong. That’s the bit, I know it.’ I just really hope that people have a good time, that it’s good, and, you know, selfishly, that I’m not shit and that people don’t write reviews going, ‘Oh my God, that’s, like, the worst acting I’ve ever seen in my life. Wow. How did they give her the part?’ ”

On shooting her character’s final on-screen moments for “Games of Thrones”: “It fucked me up,” she says. “Knowing that is going to be a lasting flavor in someone’s mouth of what Daenerys is . . .”

On equal pay: “I get fucking paid the same as my guy friends,” Clarke says. “We made sure of that.”
