Linda Hamilton and Tim Miller had very different ideas as to what they wanted to do with the Sarah Connor character in Terminator: Dark Fate.
While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Linda Hamilton talked a bit about her time on Terminator: Dark Fate. Interestingly enough, she seems to have a very clear idea as to what she wanted to do with the character of Sarah Connor and was at odds with what director Tim Miller wanted. According to Hamilton, Tim Miller wanted the character to be more relatable while Linda Hamilton called her anything but:
“There was an approach thing that I had to sort out with Tim because Tim was shooting it like an independent, as he keeps saying. I still — because I haven’t seen it — barely understand what that means. But, in terms of approach, he wanted her ‘relatable.’ That was the word he used. And I was like Sarah Connor has never been relatable! She was relatable in the first movie as a nice waitress, but what do you mean ‘relatable’? You are trying to make her softer? I just knew that with the time that had passed and as her situation changed, she ain’t relatable.”
This certainly rings true with Linda Hamilton’s performance in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. While in the first film, Sarah Connor did seem like an everyday waitress, the second film had her play a borderline unhinged lunatic.
What do you all make of this? Do you think it’s strange that Tim Miller would want Sarah Conner to be more relatable in Terminator: Dark Fate? Is Linda Hamilton right? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Here’s the official synopsis for Terminator: Dark Fate:
27 years after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a new, modified liquid metal Terminator (Gabriel Luna) is sent from the future by Skynet in order to terminate Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes), a hybrid cyborg human (Mackenzie Davis), and her friends. Sarah Connor comes to their aid, as well as the original Terminator, for a fight for the future.
