Emilia Clarke Leading Lady Parts BBC short

Emilia Clarke appears in a new comedy short written and directed by Jessica Swale called “Leading Lady Parts,” published online by BBC.
The 10-minute short shows a series of British stars auditioning for a fictional movie.
In the short’s description, it says the role is “a lady part who is more than just lady parts.”
But one by one, each actress is told to be skinnier (but also curvy), or to wear more makeup, or take their clothes off.
Clarke (“Game of Thrones”) is told to smile more, while Gemma Chan (“Crazy Rich Asians”) is asked to be more white.
Wunmi Mosaku (“End of the Fxxking World”) is mistaken for a coffee runner and told she probably meant to audition for the “Black Panther” sequel.
Clarke’s co-star Lena Headey also appears and is told she’s too old.
“Leading Lady Parts” is part of the “Hear Her” campaign which “aims to give free reign and the opportunity for normally unheard women from across the UK to tell their stories and give their opinions on all matters ‘women.'”
