ET Canada: An interview with the cast of Terminator Genisys

‘Terminator Genisys’ Cast Talk Rebooting The Franchise: ‘It’s The Same Machine’

Hitting theatres on Canada Day, July 1, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in the role that made him famous, playing the Terminator in the sequel, “Terminator Genisys”. “It’s still the Terminator, it’s the same machine,” the actor says. Even though the machine has stayed the same, the rest of the cast has changed this time around. The latest installment takes us back in time, changing events in the first four films with an alternate timeline.

“Game Of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke plays Sarah Connor, a role, Linda Hamilton (and her impressive guns) made famous in the first film and the second sequel. Not a rookie in playing strong women, Clarke tells ET Canada’s Matte Babel that stepping into Connor’s shoes wasn’t easy. “She is different because the script that we were all lucky to work with has give her an entirely new back story,” the 29-year-old actress says. “I watched the movie a bunch when I was growing up, but when it came to doing this movie, I kind of stopped watching becuase I had to take our script and make it our own,” she adds. “And her guns were so darn impressive.” The actress also admits that taking on the iconic role might have influenced her role as Khaleesi on the hit HBO show “Game Of Thrones”. “It’s interesting,” Clarke says of shooting one “bada** to another” adding, “I feel like [season 5] of ‘Game Of Thrones’ has more of a kind of edge.”

Vogue May 2015 issue article, video, magazine scans and photoshoot outtakes


Emilia was on the cover of the Vogue May 2015 issue. Vogue had an interesting article about Emilia and a very pretty photoshoot. I have added the photoshoot outtakes an magazine scans to the gallery. You can view the video ‘Emilia Clarke Cover Shoot – Game of Thrones Star Channels Khaleesi’ above and you can read the entire article below.


In Vogue: Emilia Clarke
Emilia Clarke, Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, abandoned her dragons for the fantasy of couture in the May 2015 issue of Vogue.

When I first arrive at the greasy spoon in Hampstead where Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke (who plays the platinum-blonde warrior queen Daenerys Targaryen) and I are due to meet, I almost turn on my heel and walk out. There are only two people here, drinking lukewarm coffee under the strip lighting, and one of them looks as if he might be homeless. The other one, a tiny brunette in black jeans and a black leather jacket, has her legs up on the chair beside her and is twiddling her hair absent-mindedly while reading Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch.

On closer inspection, there are a few clues that I have, in fact, found my cover girl: the Prada leopard-print loafers, the sequined green Alberta Ferretti overcoat on the back of her chair, the silver Yves Saint Laurent bangle, the matching Chanel red nails and lipstick. “Hi!” grins the actress best known to the tens of millions of Game of Thrones fans around the globe as the First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons.

Emilia Clarke Going from Game of Thrones to Terminator Genisys

She’s got a British accent in real life and speaks fluent Dothraki as Daenerys Targaryan on Game of Thrones, but these days Emilia Clarke is working on a more American sound. Gearing up to star in the upcoming movie prequel Terminator Genisys, to out this summer, Clarke says she’s not new to the popular franchise. “I was absolutely a fan. I watched Terminator growing up,” Clarke told PEOPLE at this week’s Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere in San Francisco.

So how is her Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation? “Very good,” she said lowering her brow and mimicking the actor’s low, Austrian intonation. Though a starring role in 50 Shades of Grey didn’t interest her, with this project, “It’s been an absolute dream come true getting to play with an icon,” she said. As for what awaits her dragon-loving character on Thrones this season, “She’s getting ready for the iron throne,” Clarke told reporters. “She’s trying to find the right balance of good and evil, you need both to be a leader.”



The Hollywood Reporter interview, photoshoot and magazine scans

The Hollywood Reporter did a very interesting interview with Emilia about Terminator, why she turned down Fifty Shades of Grey and more a while ago. You can read the interview below and I have added the outtakes of the photoshoot and the magazine scans to the gallery.


‘Game of Thrones’ Star Emilia Clarke on Playing Sarah Connor, Turning Down ‘Fifty Shades’ and Moving on From Nudity
Power, pay and prestige: Everyone in the town wants some, and Clarke, star of HBO’s massive hit, just happens to have a little more than other actresses right now, as she commands $7 million a season, gets billing above Arnold Schwarzenegger in ‘Terminator’ and cuts back on nude scenes: “There are other women who remove items of clothing on our show, so they’ve kind of got my nipple count down now.”

For some reason, Emilia Clarke best remembers the fruit plate.

It was 2010, and the actress was standing before Game of Thrones’ casting director and several of the show’s producers. But all she could see was the produce. “There was a huge, incredible plateau of fruit,” Clarke, 28, recalls in her chirpy British accent. “I was like, ‘Wow, I’ve arrived. This is a serious audition.’ ”

Just one year out of the famed Drama Centre London (other alums include Colin Firth, Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy), the self-described “country girl” who grew up in Berkshire near Oxford University (where her father is a theater sound engineer and her mom a marketing exec) was struck by the extravagance. But Clarke was auditioning for the role of a queen, Daenerys Targaryen, potential heir to the Iron Throne. And HBO was willing to spend like a Lannister — $8 million for the pilot, $50 million to $60 million for the first season — in order to build the series. The snacks better be good.

Of course, in the five years since, Game of Thrones has become the most successful show in HBO history, surpassing even The Sopranos, with an average 18.4 million viewers an episode across all platforms. The series has grown so big, it’s being used as the cornerstone of HBO’s new business model; it’s no accident that HBO Now — a service that can bypass the cable companies and allows access to its programs via Apple TV for a monthly charge of $15 — is launching right before GOT’s fifth-season premiere April 12.
