THE PARISIAN WEEKEND. As she is currently shooting the latest episodes of the Game of Thrones series , the actress is on the new Star Wars saga . Meeting with a feminist who knows how to assert herself.

 

On the third floor of the chic New York Edition, in the heart of Manhattan. Pink complexion, luscious lips and eyebrows provided, a small silhouette of 1.57 meters advances towards us. British actress Emilia Clarke , 31, breaks the screen in Solo: A Star Wars Story . This tenth film stamped Star Wars , in theaters on May 23, focuses on the youth of Han Solo, cult character of the intergalactic saga.

 

His name may not tell you much. The actress is best known for playing, since 2011, Daenerys Targaryen (aka “Khaleesi” or “Mother of the Dragon”), one of the main roles of the medieval-fantasy series Game of Thrones .

 

For those who have never looked at it, booster shot. Daenerys, fallen heiress, reduced to slavery by a band of savages, will gradually free himself from his chains by taking the lead of an army of oppressed. The episodes follow one another and the young woman, a fine military strategist, asserts herself as a leader of men and dragons (yes, yes). His goal: to run for the famous Iron Throne.

 

“To embody this character, it really gave me confidence,” she says. Surrounded by her “court” – makeup artist, hairdresser, stylist and press officer ready to respond to any of her desires – Emilia Clarke, stern look, seems to have been impregnated with the imperial charisma of her double on the screen.

 

This natural brunette even sports, for a few months, immaculate blonde hair , like his character! But the Game of Thrones adventure will stop soon. The last episodes of the series are currently being watched and will be broadcast from April 2019.

 

“I will soon have to find out who I am without Daenerys. It’s very exciting ! She enthuses. Her dreams ? One day play a female James Bond and share the poster with Leonardo DiCaprio.

 

Emilia Clarke has ambition. It goes back to childhood. The young woman grew up in the countryside of Berkshire County, between Oxford and London. His father is a sound engineer for musicals. His mother climbed the ladder of a consulting firm. “He gave me his artistic fiber, he taught me to sing and play several instruments. She gave me her character as a lioness, “she says proudly.

 

The desire to become an actress comes to him very small. At home, she watches over romantic comedies with Audrey Hepburn. She follows her brother to St Edward’s School, a private school in Oxford. A “different” pupil, Emilia does not find her place among her comrades “who all dream of becoming lawyers”. She then postulates at several schools of drama. What refusals!

 

The young woman leaves a few months traveling in Asia, then retries her chance. She is finally admitted to Drama Center London, one of the most prestigious British theater schools, from which Colin Firth and Michael Fassbender, among others, have come out.

 

“This training is very demanding. It prepares you to face an industry that does not forgive mistakes, “she says. Nicknamed the “Trauma Center”, this establishment has the reputation of pushing its students in their entrenchments. It is mostly played roles of old lady or prostitute. Obstinate, Emilia Clarke graduated in 2009.

 

His first year out of school is difficult. She gets a role in Triassic Attack (2010), a TV movie series Z broadcast on the channel Syfy, but has to chain the jobs of waitress or employee in a call center to pay his rent … It speaks then an audition for “a series with dragons”. The producers are looking for a blonde and slender actress. She is dark and not very tall.

 

Without really believing, she does some research on Google to learn about Game of Thrones , the literary work of a certain George RR Martin . The creators of the series are finally seduced by her spontaneity, her humor – Emilia Clarke embarked on a “chicken dance” during her audition – and her strength of character.

 

The first season of Game of Thrones airs in 2011. It earns the actress the Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a drama series. Then Emilia Clarke gets noticed in two discrete British films: Spike Island (2012), Mat Whitecross, a comedy drama never released in France, and Dom Hemingway (2013), Richard Shepard, a crazy thriller where she plays alongside of Jude Law.

 

Nudity on the screen, a sensitive subject

 

Game of Thrones , whose popularity is growing year by year, is at the center of the debate. Praised for her female characters who lead men by the nose, the series is also labeled “machismo”, especially for its tendency to strip her heroines, Daenerys – and therefore Emilia Clarke – in the lead.

 

However, when asked the young actress, elected “Sexiest Woman of the Year” by Esquire magazine in 2015, his opinion on the issue is the radio silence. His press officer even orders us to change the subject. We touched a chord.

 

She who expressed herself willingly a few years ago decided to say nothing more. No doubt she keeps in mind that in 2013, when she walked the Broadway boards in the room Breakfast at Tiffany’s , the critics had much more talked about the time when she entered naked in his bath that his performance .. .

 

Anxious not to be stowed in a box, she even declined to star in the series Fifty Shades of Gray (2015) because of her too many sex scenes. And has reduced his naked appearances in Game of Thrones as the seasons, when it was not replaced by a lining.

 

Better paid than a man

 

Emilia Clarke prefers to mention her commitments. Anti-Trump assumed, the English spoke against the Brexit and posted on his Instagram account a message of support to the British Labor Party. A convinced feminist, she confirmed that she chose to choose independent women’s roles. In Terminator: Genisys (2015), she plays, alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sarah Connor, rebel icon of the saga. And in the romantic movie Avant toi (2016), she plays a fanciful and determined young woman.

 

“Feminism is leading the life I want without being defined by my gender. I think that if we say “no” to films that do not give enough space to women, they (producers, Ed) will stop doing, “she says.

 

Emilia Clarke, with a character to say the least, is formidable in business. For her role in Terminator: Genisys , she would have been better paid than Schwarzy … and would have received more than 10 million dollars for his participation in the season 7 of Game of Thrones ! Without confirming these rumors, she concedes with a laugh: “I am a good negotiator! ”

 

Next project for her, creating her own production box. “As soon as I finish Game of Thrones , I put myself in it,” promises the one who is already writing a screenplay. After the dragoons, Emilia Clarke intends to tame Hollywood.
