It took Emilia Clarke a while before she realized that she was treated differently while on the set of HBO's "Game of Thrones" where she plays the fan favorite character of Daenerys Targaryen. During her interview with Rolling Stone, the actress frankly said working in a male-dominated industry like Hollywood is "like dealing with racism" and actresses are being treated unfairly for being women.

'I look around, and that's my daily life'

The 30-year-old English actress admitted that she has been getting this treatment since she joined the popular fantasy series in 2011.

But despite her personal experiences, Clarke is still grateful that her "Game of Thrones" character allows her to send an important message to women from all walks of life.

She even added that going nude in front of the camera does not stop her from promoting feminism. The award-winning actress also considers herself lucky to play a role which portrays a woman as a great ruler. In a previous interview with ET, Clarke commended the "Game of Thrones" production for featuring "fabulous strong women" in the series and for being "at the forefront of feminism."

What to expect from Daenerys?

The long wait is almost over for "Game of Thrones" fans as Clarke and her team will return to our TV screens on July 16.

But before the seventh season premieres, Clarke is already giving us plenty of reasons to anticipate the eighth and final run of the HBO series.

The actress guaranteed that the last installment will finally confirm or deny fan speculations and theories. She hinted that there are scenes which will leave the viewers thinking, but assured that the final season will feature plot points that will satisfy the fans.

Clarke, however, said that "Game of Thrones" Season 8 will be her swan song before she moves on from her character as the Mother of Dragons. In fact, it has been confirmed that the English actress will join the lineup of Han Solo's standalone "Star Wars" film which is slated for release in May 2018.

Although her character is being kept under wraps, the EWwy Awards winner described her role as "awesome" before she stopped herself from spilling further details about her newest project.

Clarke has previously said that the upcoming "Star Wars" movie is more secretive than "Game of Thrones." In the "Star Wars" movie, the English actress will be joining Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Michael K. Williams, and Ian Kenny.
