Behind The Scenes: Arnold Schwarzenegger & Linda Hamilton On The Set Of TERMINATOR: DARK FATE

David Ellison’s Skydance Media bought the Terminator rights and in 2015, Terminator Genisys (read the review) attempted to reboot the franchise, riffing on Cameron’s 1984 original and bringing back Arnold Schwarzenegger to his trademark role. Genisys was supposed to kick-start a new trilogy but disappointing box office saw those plans scraped by Ellison and he decided that what the Terminator franchise was lacking was James Cameron and he reached out to its creator who came onboard Terminator: Dark Fate as an Executive Producer.

The first chapter in the tale of Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle (wonderfully played by Alan Tudyk) has officially come to an end. While we're sad to see SYFY's Resident Alien temporarily leave the airwaves, we continue to remind ourselves of those helpful words sung by the Five Stairsteps: "Ooh child, things are gonna get easier." With Season 1 of the Dark Horse-inspired series now over, SYFY WIRE caught up with creator/showrunner/executive producer Chris Sheridan for a no-holds-barred spoiler breakdown of Episode 10, "Heroes of Patience." As an added bonus, he also gave us some juicy teasers on what fans can expect from Season 2.

Top 5 classic Linda Hamilton ‘Terminator’ moments before her premiere on Resident Alien

Sarah Connor is the rare action character who not only gets more and more badass as the years go on, but more and more interesting too. That’s in large part, of course, to Linda Hamilton, who has chiseled out the Terminator franchise’s merciless matriarch three memorable times on the big screen (not counting voice work). From being hunted by Arnold Schwarzzenger in 1984’s The Terminator, to defending her world-saving progeny alongside Arnold in 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day, to finally saving another would-be world saver in 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate, Connor has proven herself to be one of the most durable and dangerous heroes of genre.

Linda Hamilton

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 18, the Eugene Human Rights Commission presented its annual Human Rights Award to Linda Hamilton, a 30-year resident of Eugene who has served on more than 20 local educational and governmental boards and committees. “I call it community civic engagement,” she says, “being at the table to drive the change you need around equity. I’m usually the only Black person on those boards.” Hamilton was the seventh of 12 children in her family, growing up in the bayous of northeast Louisiana. “My mom, Fannie Akins, was Cherokee and Black,” she says. “We all called her Madea. Dad hunted alligator, turtle, rabbit, duck and deer. We grew sugar cane, watermelon, collard greens, and raised chickens, hogs and cows.” By age 12, Linda wanted out. “I was scared,” she recalls. “I saw young girls getting pregnant. Kids dropped out to work in the fields.” She saw her chance at age 15, when her uncle and cousin from Las Vegas came to visit. “I packed my stuff in a brown paper bag,” she says. “We told my mother that I’d be back.” Instead, she wound up living with her aunt, her mom’s baby sister, in Salem, Oregon. She was the only Black person in her 1985 McKay High School graduating class. “I got a lot of attention,” she recalls. “People were so accepting, loving and kind.” She studied criminal justice at Chemeketa Community College, but left to pursue real-life experience as a store detective: Nordstrom’s sent her to its flagship Portland store. She went from there to the Oregon Department of Corrections, where she was one of the first women to work in an all-male maximum security prison, the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem. In 1996, she was promoted to correctional counselor/parole and probation officer in Eugene, where she lives with her husband, Senior State Trooper Rick Hamilton, and where they raised their daughter, Tiwanna. In 2015, she was elected to an at-large position on the Lane Education Service District Board of Directors. “I got an award from the University of Oregon,” she notes, “for juggling the most meetings!”

Hasta la vista, alien scum! Get a first look at Linda Hamilton as a calculating general in SYFY's Resident Alien

Linda Hamilton may be finished with dispatching killer robots from the future, but her gig as a professional alien hunter is just getting started.

A high-ranking member of the military, McCallister is determined to smoke out the extra-terrestrial that is now living in Patience, Colorado under the name — and skin — of Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle (Alan Tudyk).
