Emilia Clarke who played the role of Daenerys Targaryen in the hit TV series Game of Thrones have complained of the alarming rate of sexism in Hollywood. The Mother of Dragons as is she is fondly called in the TV series in an interview with Rolling Stone said she was at first unaware of the segregation. She claims she was suddenly surprised by it when she noticed that people treated her differently for the sole reason of her gender.
The star commenting on how long she was ignorant about the situation said “It took me a really long time to see that I do get treated differently. But I look around, and that’s my daily life.” The star also alluded to her nakedness on the set of Game of Thrones and explained that it shouldn’t be an excuse to be sexist and doesn’t water down her feminist stance on any issue.
However, Clarke is not the only Game of Thrones star that has complained of sexism on recent times. Maisie Williams in an interview granted to Entertainment Weekly explained that when she was first asked about feminism she was only 12 and didn’t understand the meaning. However, when the meaning was explained to her she felt everyone should be that way but unfortunately everyone is not. The star who played Maisie Williams on Game of Thrones also said that though women are sometimes treated unfriendly on the show men also suffer the same fate.
Another Game of Throne star who has complained of a new breed of sexism is Kit Harrington who played the fan favourite role of John Snow on the TV series. The star claimed that his look might have played a part in the role he got on the show and he considers this sexism to be that which affect men.
The 7th season of the hit TV series is would premier on the 16th of July to the joy of the series highly addictive fans. Spoilers of the new season has it that some characters that have never seen each other throughout the entire series would get to cross path for the first time.
Whether or not the powers that be in Hollywood would take the latest talk of sexism serious is unknown at this point.
