Take a good look at this face. It’s the face of the new mother of humanity’s savior.
Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has been officially confirmed to play Sarah Connor in the planned Terminator reboot and we, for one, are thrilled about it.
Clarke will be working again with director Alan Taylor who has directed Clarke in numerous episodes of GoT. (In another interesting coincidence, Clarke’s GoT co-star Lena Headey played the same character in the TV series, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles).
According to Deadline, the pursuit of the Sarah Connor role came down to a close match between Clarke and actress Brie Larson.
Personally, considering what a badass Sarah Connor is supposed to be, we think Clarke probably had it in the bag as soon as the casting directors saw this:[subscribe2]
