Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on the popular fantasy series Game of Thrones and the director of her 2015 film Terminator Genisys, Alan Taylor, were both burnt out by the process of shooting the project and will not be back for a sequel.

Incidentally, Taylor directed Clarke in many of the early episodes of GoT in Seasons 1 and 2.  Last week's GoT episode, Beyond the Wall, marked a behind-the-scenes reunion of Clarke and Taylor.


In a recent interview, the director talked about the experience, terming it "rough" and not something they would like to repeat, reports "That was a rough one. It was tough, it was tough on Clarke and me. I think we came away feeling a little bit burned by the process. It was hard for her in ways that I didn't have to experience, because it was her face up on the screen and facing the criticism we had to face. I'm not surprised she's more content to carry on with her other fantastic projects than re-enter that world," Taylor said.

Clarke played the latest incarnation of Sarah Connor in the movie, which was panned by critics and moviegoers alike, and was a box-office debacle. And Taylor, says that even if a sequel was suggested, neither of them would be back. "Well, it hasn't come up...but you won't see either of us back in that world, I think it's safe to say," Taylor said.
