LINDA HAMILTON TRIVIA / STUFF YOU MAY NOT KNOW
    • Says she has struggled with depression most of her life and was a compulsive eater as a child.
    • Hamilton has slammed the third installment of futuristic robot thriller TERMINATOR 3 as 'soulless' – Hamilton refused to star in the update of the robot saga, saying that the first two Terminator movies were actually pretty high minded and there was a message about the human condition, but TERMINATOR 3 seemed to have no regard for human life. (December 27, 2002)
    • During her childhood Linda suffered from the fact that everybody saw her as just one with her sister. At the age of 16, this frustration lead to a severe identity crisis: she cut her hair and eyelashes and finally weighed about 167 pounds just to differ from her sister.
    • Is still very much in love with her ex-husband, director James Cameron - even though he repeatedly cheated on her.
    • In Sarah's dream sequence in TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY (1991), the Sarah Connor in the playground was played by 'Hamilton, Linda''s twin sister, 'Hamilton Gearren, Leslie'. The scene was originally to be shot with Linda playing both parts but she suggested using Leslie to make it easier to shoot. Leslie was subsequently used as a double in other scenes involving two Sarah Connors (i.e., when the T1000 was imitating her).
    • She broke her ankle prior to TERMINATOR 2 production, and had to have her leg wrapped every day so she could do her chase scenes. All the chase scenes where Linda had to run were filmed last.
    • Nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for TV at Golden Globe Awards for A MOTHER'S PRAYER (1996)
    • Nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV-Series - Drama at Golden Globe Awards for BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1989)
    • Nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV-Series - Drama at Golden Globe Awards for BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1987)
    • Is an LA Dodgers fan.
    • While attending Washington College, the acting professor told her she had no hope of earning a living as an actress.
    • After her role in TERMINATOR 2, she learned that she made such an impression as the pumped and ferociously tough Sarah Conner that she was typecast into being offered only roles for similarly tough characters.
    • Turned down role in TERMINATOR 3.
    • Her identical twin sister 'Leslie Hamilton Gearran' was Linda's double in TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY (1991). Leslie is seen when Sarah is remembering playing with John at the park and when the T-1000 is impersonating her.
