Emilia Clarke is having a huge impact on fans through her role as Daenerys Targaryen (Khaleesi) on the hit television show "Game of Thrones" and this is likely part of the reason she has become one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood and there is so much anticipation associated with the summer release of "Terminator Genisys" in which she plays the lead female of Sarah Connor (Now Daily - April 26).
She recounted a recent 'unplanned' meeting she had with a fan in Hollywood which illustrates how her experiences in Los Angeles can at times make her feel as if she is on the set of "Game of Thrones" as Khaleesi. While shopping at a department store in Los Angeles a woman looked at her and found herself too stunned to get into the lift while asking if the brunette beauty was actually Khaleesi who she plays while wearing a blonde wig on "Game of Thrones".
The fact that her appearance has this temporarily numbing effect on a fan in Hollywood, a city where the average person can see and bump into a television or movie star just by walking down a street provides an indication of the positive impact her acting is having on fans and how 'connected' she is with the show.
For filmmakers her impact on the fan in the department store shows how popular she has made her "Game of Thrones" character and has some entertainment observers thinking that she could very quickly move from television star to big screen movie star after the release of "Terminator Genisys" in which she plays the gritty, tough-minded Sarah O'Connor and become so popular that she will be faced with the difficult decision of whether to stay with "Game of Thrones" or branch out to more big screen movie roles.
Emilia Clarke's presence may cause some fans to temporarily lose their ability to speak because of her sensational acting performance on "The Game of Thrones" but the large number of fans who watch the show and comment on social media sites about how much they love her performances are not going unnoticed as some filmmakers are reportedly getting ready to pursue her for their big screen projects which suggests that she may have some tough decisions to make in the near future.
For Emilia Clarke, "Terminator Genisys" might be the film project that brings her time on "Game of Thrones" to an end but likely not her ability to temporarily cause fans to lose their ability to speak.
