Did You Know?
About her reaction to Arnold Schwarzenegger
being cast as the Terminator in the original film: "I didn't take Schwarzenegger very seriously as an actor at that time. I said, 'Oh Lord, why cast a man who looks like a machine as a machine? Cast somebody who's very thin to do these superhuman acts.' And I was wrong. He was used tremendously effectively, and he was served very well by that film."
In the original screenplay of The Terminator
(1984), the character she played, Sarah Connor, was 19 years old. It was decision of James Cameron
to make the character somewhat older to fit into Hamilton's age. In real life, Linda was 27 when filming started and turned 28 before the film was released.
