TSQL: Creating a Clustered Index on a View

A query that I composed and am currently running is doing so very slowly.

The query contains references to two views.  I'm thinking about adding a clustered index to each view to improve performance and ultimately get the query to run faster.

But, if I add an index to a view, does it also add that index to the underlying tables of the view and cause issues for those tables?

Incidentally, I tried to add a clustered index to one of the views.  But, SQL would not do it because the view is not schema bound.  How do I make it schema bound?  If I do this, will doing so negatively affect its underlying tables?

Are there other ways of speeding up the run of a query other than adding indexes and removing references to unnecessary tables, as I just did?
