movie-news-banner-copyScreen-Shot-2016-04-22-at-13.39.15-1021x580 caught up with Emilia Clarke at a recent press event where she revealed that whilst Terminator sequels are in the pipeline, she will not be playing Sarah Connor.

This news comes, after Arnie himself recently confirmed that he’ll be returning for Terminator 6 telling Australian TV Channel 9 that he is “looking forward to it, absolutely”.

However, the same cannot be said for Clarke who has different ideas about reprising her role as Sarah Connor.

“No,” the actor said. “Can I say that? It’s okay. No. Uh-uh. But I have some very different roles coming up.”

Well, she certainly doesn’t beat around the bush anyway!

Clarke has played Game of Thrones favourite, Daenerys Targaryen aka Mother of Dragons, since 2011, so it’s no surprise that she’s decided to tackle the big screen now too.

Whilst she won’t be returning for a Terminator sequel any time soon, she will be returning to the cinema screen this June in Me Before You. In which, she will be star in the lead role as Louisa Clark, a young woman who forms an unlikely friendship with William Traynor who she is caring for after a motorcycle accident leaves him paralysed.

She has also been cast in a voice role in the mystery drama Voice from the Stone. As of yet, we don’t have a confirmed release date for the film, despite the fact that it wrapped on filming back in 2014. Fingers crossed it’ll be hitting a screen near us sometime soon though!

Emilia Clarke fans, panic not! She’ll be back on our screens in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones which of course gets its long-awaited season 6 premiere this weekend. We can’t contain our excitement!
