Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys
Mother of Dragons Emilia Clarke, known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on "Game Of Thrones," is hitting the big screen this summer in "Terminator Genysis." She plays Sarah Connor.

Co-star Arnold Schwazenegger, who is reprising his role 30 years after the original premiered, said Clarke was very "dedicated" during filming.

But it wasn't as easy as it looked. Clarke, 28, struggled with a grenade launcher. "It was, like, 70 lbs...

The Australian actress was even spotted in between takes with an umbrella to keep her dry as she sat atop a BMW during the 4:00am shoot early Saturday morning.

Robbie ended up soaking wet from head to toe, with her pink bra vi...
