'Game of Thrones' Star Lands Major Part in 'Terminator' Reboot Deadline.com
One of the stars of HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones" has landed a major part in the upcoming reboot of "The Terminator," reports Mike Fleming Jr. at Deadline.com.
Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in "Thrones," will play Sarah Connor in the new "Terminator," the story says. In the original 'Terminator" movies Connor was played by Linda Hamilton.
Writes Fleming, "This was a hotly contested role and it came down to Clarke and Brie Larson. Both actresses tested for the producers at David Ellison’s Skydance and Megan Ellison’s Annapurna, and Paramount, which will release the film in July 2015. Clarke’s breakout role came in 'Thrones,' where she plays the dragon-commanding heroine Daenerys Targaryen in that massive HBO series, and is probably the most sympathetic of all vying to rule."
