Emilia Clarke Cast In 'Terminator'
Taylor has previously directed Clarke in a number of episodes of Game of Thrones. Incidentally, Clarke’s castmate on the HBO medieval fantasy series Lena Headey also has a Terminator connection. Headey played Sarah Connor in the TV show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. The role was first played by Linda Hamilton on the big screen in the feature directed by her ex-husband James Cameron. For the reboot, Clarke beat out 21 Jumpstreet's Brie Larson and Margot Robbie.
