Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is being lined up to star as Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot.

The 26-year-old actress reportedly made a huge impression on Paramount and Skydance executives when she auditioned for the coveted role, which was originally played by Linda Hamilton.

According to Variety she is now the front runner for the part.

Brie Larson and Margot Robbie are also thought to be in the running.

Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) has signed on to direct the new Terminator film, from a script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to reprise his role from the first trilogy.

A Terminator television series is also in development to potentially air alongside the movies.
