Emilia Clarke on the Cover of Rolling Stone Magazine

Emilia Clarke's hit TV show the 'Games of Thrones' returns next month and you can catch her on the new cover of Rolling Stone magazine. On the cover which was shot by Mark Seliger, Emilia is simply wearing a white tee shirt which was accessorized with a gold cross earring. In the issue, she talks feminism, the political climate, Game of Thrones and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on Emilia's feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand. 

On the political climate:
You can't expect everyone to just stop doing their jobs and march every day of their lives. But we've got to be in this shit for the long game.

On how women get treated on set:
I feel so naive for saying it, but it's like dealing with racism. You're aware of it, and you're aware of it, but one day, you go, 'Oh, my God, it's everywhere!' Like you suddenly wake up to it and you go, 'Wait a fucking second, are you . . . are you treating me different because I've got a pair of tits? Is that actually happening?' 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.

On her being naked on the Game of Thrones:
It doesn't stop me from being a feminist. Like, guess what? Yes, I've got mascara on, and I also have a high IQ, so those two things can be one and the same.

On wanting to learn:
I've suddenly got a ferocious need to learn things. Like, I listen to podcasts manically – The New York Times and The Guardian and The Economist and TED Talks and Fresh Air. I need information. I'm like, 'I just want to know as much as humanly possible.'

On her Game of Thrones character Khaleesi:
Khaleesi got a little something extra this year, you know what I mean? She got a little something else going on.
