Emilia Clarke Cast as Sarah Connor for Terminator: Genesis

The Khaleesi herself has been cast as the new Sarah Connor for a new set of Terminator movies.



Yes it looks like Emilia Clarke will have a rather big shoe to fill in as she takes on the role of the mother of the future messiah John Connor. Clarke is the first official member to be cast for the fifth Terminator movie. She’ll be joining another definite returnee, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who will once again become a Terminator.

Clarke follows the footsteps of Linda Hamilton who was the original Sarah Connor in Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. The next one was her Game of Thrones co-star Lena Headey who played the mother in the series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.



We’ve still got a long time to wait as the film won’t be hitting theaters till 2015.
