Emilia Clarke is no longer just going to be known as Daenerys Targaryen. The "Game of Thrones" Khaleesi has been confirmed for the role of Sarah Connor in the upcoming "Terminator" reboot.

Deadline announced the news, which will have Clarke working again with former "Game of Thrones" director Alan Taylor. He directed six "Game of Thrones" episodes including Season 1's "Baelor" (the one where Ned gets killed), the Season 1 finale, the Season 2 premiere and the Season 2 finale. Taylor's latest directorial effort was Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World."

Rumor of Clarke's potential involvement was announced back in November. She was in contention up against the likes of Brie Larson, Margot Robbie and "Orphan Black's" Tatiana Maslany.

At the time, it was reported that the casting of John Connor would wait until after Sarah Connor was cast. The most likely candidate for that part is "Zero Dark Thirty's" Jason Clarke. »
