With just one stint behind her as the iconic female character Sarah Conner, Game Of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has confirmed that she has walked away from the Terminator franchise.
After the muddled response over Terminator Genisys which was critically ravaged but done ok in the money stakes, the jury was out if the franchise would carry on from the events of the recent sequel, but with Arnold Schwarzenegger keen to reprise his role once more, Clarke has admitted she won’t be back as the mother of John Conner.
In a recent interview with Coming soon, she stated that she has put the franchise behind her.
“No. Can I say that? It’s okay. No. Uh-uh. But I have some very different roles coming up”
One role is in the upcoming “Me Before You” which she was desperate for a role!
“I read the book [Me Before You] and it was just the most beautiful thing I had ever read. I was shooting ‘Terminator’ at the time I had a rocket launcher in my hand while crying like a little girl. I felt like the author, Jojo Moyes, had found a part of me and just wrote it down. I knew that I just had to play the role.”
“This role is the complete opposite [of Sarah Connor]. It’s affecting, but it’s a comedy as well.”
As for the Terminator franchise, that itself is still stuck in limbo land even though Arnie more or less confirmed a sixth film is on its way, the studio has remained quiet, and with Clarke stepping away from Sarah Conner which was played brilliantly by Linda Hamilton, we can guess the character may not be seen again in any further instalments!
