Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on why she turned down Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)] They offered me a part. I read it and knew my character arc was so complete after the first two, but in the third one, it was negligible. She died halfway through and there was no time to mourn her. It was all so disposable so I said no thank you. See more »


Sprained her ankle prior to filming The Terminator (1984) and it never quite healed right on account of all the running she had to do in the film. While filming Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), she suffered permanent hearing damage in one ear while she fired a gun inside an elevator without using her earplugs. See more »


Frequently portrays women who endure despite great hardship or tragedy See more »
