Emilia Clarke beat out Brie Larson (United States of Tara, 21 Jump Street) for the coveted (but possibly cursed) role of Sarah Connor in Terminator 5.
The movie, listed as Terminator: Genesis on IMDb and set to hit theaters in 2015, will be directed by Alan Taylor, who also directed six episodes of Game of Thrones including the Clarke-heavy dragon-reclaiming season two finale.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Emilia Clarke on Thrones, but I don’t remember Sarah Connnor being so damn cute. This is the toughest-looking photo of her and there is literally a man holding an umbrella over her head.
In other GoT news, Telltale are making a Game of Thrones video game series in the vein of their acclaimed Walking Dead chapters for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Continue reading “Game of Thrones’ Dragon Tamer Emilia Clarke to Play Sarah Connor”
On a scale of 1 to 10, how weird is Khaleesi (Ka-lease-ee) as a name for current and future earth-dwelling beings? Weird or not, it’s happening. According to babynamewizard.com exactly 146 Khaleesis were born in 2012.
It’s not exactly the worst Game of Thrones-inspired name. Out of all the characters, Khaleesi — played by Emilia Clarke on the HBO series — and Arya (another newly popular name) are two of the less morally corrupt.
Granted Khaleesi, which means “queen” in the fictional language of Dothraki, does eat a horse heart, and her ultimate goal is to see Lannister heads burnt by dragons and put on spikes, but she is mostly kind with good motives.
(At least “Joffrey,” “Cersei,” “Walder,” “Hodor” and “Eddard” didn’t make the list.)
I actually kind of like the name Cersei, and I guess there’d be low expectations. Like if the kid didn’t turn out to be a selfish, husband-murdering brother-f*cking sea hag you’d be proud. Continue reading “‘Khaleesi’ is Becoming a Popular U.S. Name”
