Beauty and the Beast Forever - Linda Hamilton:Her Page

Linda Hamilton


  • Is perhaps best known for her roles as Sarah Connor in The Terminator (1984), and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), and as Catherine Chandler in "Beauty and the Beast" (1987).
    James Cameron (I) offered her the role of Molly Brown in Titanic (1997) (ultimately played by Kathy Bates (I)), but she declined.
    Was considered for the role of Dr. Chase Meridian in Batman Forever (1995).
    Read for the part of Joanne Galloway in A Few Good Men (1992). The part went to Demi Moore instead.
    She was a method acting student at the Lee Strasberg Institute.
    A former manager of hers embezzled $100,000 of her money.
    At one stage in her life, she was addicted to cocaine.
    Her father died in a car crash when she was young.


    (June 2002): Plays Ethel Rosenberg in "Worse Than Murder: Ethel and Julius Rosenberg" play by Lou Shaw (Ventura Court Theater, Studio City, California, USA).
    Gave interviews for the one hour documentary "Making of Dante's Peak" which is included on the Collector's Edition DVD of Dante's Peak (1997).


    My heart is so light that it's amazing. I get to play all this grief, all this loss, all this disaster and chaos. It's hysterically funny. I am very light. I keep saying I'm Lucy Ricardo trapped in somebody else's body.
    At the 1997 Oscars, about then-husband James Cameron (I): "My husband is the sexiest man in the world."
    Talking about the development of the Sarah Connor character from the Terminator films: "A woman who grows and transforms on screen is always a wonderful thing to play. Sarah went from a vulnerable, normal girl to someone who finds all of her deep reservoirs of strength and comes through it all."
    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."
    [talking about James Cameron after their divorce]: I love him as much as I ever did. But that doesn't mean that the heartache wasn't huge and I haven't suffered. I knew how Jim was when I married him and I love him still.
