Just a few hours before hitting the red carpet in Cannes for the premiere of "Solo: A Star Wars Story", London-born actress Emilia Clarke sat down to speak about the debut of the blockbuster movie and the ongoing shifts in the film industry.

"It's really hard because this is a problem that has been around forever so changing it overnight is impossible". "So I think it's mainly in the beginning, just be aware of that and going, 'Can you just check?'" she said about negotiating pay. But she also warned against an "unnecessarily aggressive" approach.
