Game of Thrones actor Emilia Clarke is sure she won’t be returning as Sarah Connor for the next installments in the Terminator franchise.
The British actor, who appeared alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the latest installment titled Terminator Genisys, gave a straight “no” when asked if she would reprise her role as Sarah Connor in its follow-ups, reported Aceshowbiz.
“No. Can I say that? It’s okay. No. Uh-uh,” the 29-year-old star said in a chat with Coming Soon.
“But I have some very different roles coming up.” One of the roles she’s talking about is the lead in Me Before You.

“I read the book and it was just the most beautiful thing I had ever read,” she said of Jojo Moyes’ novel on which the romantic drama is based.
Genisys, which also starred Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney, was planned as the first of a trilogy of new Terminator movies.
The big-budget 2015 film received a lot of negative reviews and was a commercial flop as it earned less than $100 in North America, though it did perform well in some other countries like China. Fans assumed the trilogy was cancelled after Paramount removed the next Genysis films from their release schedule.

The sequel’s original May 19, 2017 slot is occupied by the Baywatch movie. The third film’s 2019 release date remains empty.
Schwarzenegger, however, is pretty optimistic the next films will still happen. While discussing the franchise’s future in an interview a few weeks ago, he said, “I am looking forward to it, absolutely.”
