Linda Hamilton will forever be a name mentioned when talking about the small but impactful history of women in science fiction films. Sarah Conor of the Terminator franchise is an icon, and the woman who brought her to life even more so. Imagine our absolute delight when James Cameron announced that she’d be returning for the 6th installment, Terminator: Dark Fate.
“I didn’t want it to look like a shameless money-grab, I wanted the script and the story where going to be worthy of carrying on the tale,” Hamilton told Variety on the red carpet during CinemaCon in Las Vegas.
She continues, saying the story is what eventually pulled her back in.
“The script wasn’t finished, or really even started, but I thought it would be really interesting with all those years in between, so many different ways we could enrich the character and the character’s experience, piled on top, and that it might be a nice time to return.”
