Emilia Clarke is Marie Claire’s cover girl and she’s talking all about turning down what some would consider the role of a LIFETIME.
In her cover interview in the July 2015 issue, Clarke talks about how she was offered role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, but the Game of Thrones star says she feared she would be typecast if she accepted the role because she already goes super nude in GOT. Kind of a “been there done that” thing.

“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.”

The actress has a new part that sounds even more exciting than Anastasia, too…she’ll be playing Sarah Connor (a role originally played by Linda Hamilton) in summer blockbuster Terminator Genisys. In preparation she did hours of weightlifting every day…which sounds pretty different than both FSOG and GOT!
