MARIE CLAIRE UK – Emilia Clarke has revealed exclusively to Marie Claire why she turned down the role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey. In her cover interview in the July 2015 issue, the Game of Thrones star says she feared she would be typecast if she accepted the role in Fifty Shades of Grey because of her nude scenes in Game of Thrones.

‘I really wanted to work with [Fifty Shades director] Sam Taylor-Johnson because she’s fucking amazing. But there is a huge amount of nudity in the film,’ she explains. ‘I’ll never say, “I’m never doing nudity” because I’ve already done it, but I thought I might get stuck in a pigeonhole that I would have struggled to get out of.’

Dressed to kill in our July cover shoot, Emilia also talks about the epic film role that will further help distance herself from playing Daenerys, Mother of Dragons in the hit Sky Atlantic TV show. She’ll play Sarah Connor (a role originally played by Linda Hamilton) in summer blockbuster, Terminator Genisys. In preparation she did hours of weightlifting every day.

‘Those fucking guns are super heavy,’ she recalls. ‘You’re running with them a lot of the time, and I needed to keep up with/be better than the boys. I needed to know what to do to have Arnold go: [adopting Arnie accent] “very nice”. That was my goal.’

On having her body scrutinized: ‘I remember when everything first kicked off, I Googled myself. You just do, it’s instinct. But never again,’ she adds. ‘It just takes that one person who says: “She’s a fat bitch,” and you’re like: “I’m a fat bitch!”

Despite being linked to Terminator Genisys co-star Jai Courtney, Emilia admits her nomadic existence makes romantic relationships ‘absolutely impossible’.

‘I’m soppy and I do like to believe that when the right person comes along, it will work, because you want to make it work. Everyone else seems to manage it.’

VOGUE UK – EMILIA CLARKE covers the May issue of British Vogue, marking the 28-year-old’s debut on home turf. Inside the issue, the Game of Thrones actress reveals all, including her parents’ reaction to her becoming an actress, and what it’s like returning for season five as one of TV’s most famous heroines.

“I went back to Game of Thrones and it was like coming home. Just the smell of the hotel in Belfast made me feel safe,” she revealed. “I told myself, forget the big game plan; all I want is to do jobs that make me happy.”

She has, however had to be careful what her parents see of her most famous role – Game of Thrones isn’t exactly known for being tame.

“When I first read the scripts, I was on holiday with my family. I told my dad, you’re not going to be able to watch the first five episodes.” (source)

PEOPLE.COM – 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.”

TV3 XPOSE EntertainmentTerminator Genisys director Alan Taylor says Emilia Clarke’s British training was one of the main reasons he cast her in the movie.

Emilia Clarke was cast in the new Terminator movie thanks to her British training. The Game of Thrones actress stars as John Connor’s mother in Terminator Genisys.

And the movie’s director Alan Taylor has opened up about just why he chose Emilia, 28, for the role. In fact, Alan says it was Emilia’s ability to take on the part without altering her behaviour in between takes that secured her the part.

“She’ll be in a scene sobbing and as soon as you say, ‘cut,’ she’ll turn back to the crew and finish the joke she was telling before she started,” Alan told The Hollywood Reporter. “She can step into and out of it in a way that some American actors can’t.”

Emilia stars alongside Jai Courtney and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the upcoming movie.

Prior to being cast in the new Terminator picture, Emilia was most famous for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, which she has starred in since 2011. But Emilia added in the interview that she had no idea the programme would become as successful as it did.

“Never in a million years did I think Game of Thrones was going to take off like it did,” Emilia said. “It’s taken me five years to catch up with it. I’m still not sure I’m there.”

Now Emilia is a household name, she has her pick of movie roles. In fact, she turned down the part of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey. The part was eventually taken by Dakota Johnson.

However, Emilia insists she has “no regrets” about passing on the role. (source)

Emilia for THR

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.

“Never in a million years did I think Game of Thrones was going to take off like it did,” says Clarke, settling into her chair at a Greenwich Village bistro with a cafe Americano (she lives in London but is in New York for the upcoming GOT publicity blitz). “It’s taken me five years to catch up with it. I’m still not sure I’m there.”

Oh, she’s there. Game of Thrones is a kingdom teeming with ambitious actors hungry for a big break. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau took his shot last spring in the Cameron Diaz rom-com The Other Woman. Kit Harington had his chance playing a gladiator in February 2014’s Pompeii. But Clarke is the only castmember who’ll be stepping onto the big screen with better billing than Arnold Schwarzenegger, starring as no less a film icon than “Sarah f—ing Connor” — as Clarke refers to her — in Terminator: Genisys, Paramount and Skydance’s $170 million reboot of the 31-year-old series (out July 1). She also was, presumably, the only GOT actor approached to play Dakota Johnson’s role in Fifty Shades of Grey (unless Peter Dinklage is hiding something), which she ended up turning down. “No regrets,” she says, sipping her coffee.

LOOK.co.uk – There aren’t many people who can add ‘working with dragons’ to their CV, but Emilia Clarke, 27, is an exception. Next month, she’ll return to our screens, almost certainly winning hearts and conquering her next kingdom, as Game Of Thrones’ most powerful female character Daenerys Targaryen, mother of dragons.

Emilia’s role as a goddess-like figure has turned her into an international star, especially as she spends a lot of time naked on the show. Talking about getting her kit off on TV in front of millions, she laughs about auditioning for the role and being told there might be some nudity involved: “I was given scenes to read and was told there may be nudity – a smidgen, I think, was the word used,” Emilia says. “I read the final script and my jaw dropped to the floor.”

If you haven’t managed to catch the show (seriously, where have you been?!) you only have until 9 April to catch up, because series five is set to be epic and with even bigger dragons. Gulp. We sat down with the GoT star to discover a little bit more about those nude scenes and why we’re all obsessed with the show…
