Linda Hamilton played the role of Sarah Connor alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the original 'Terminator' movie which released in the year 1984. 34 years later, 62-year-old Linda Hamilton has now reunited with 71-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger for a reboot that is set to release in 2019. They have been filming together since the month of June.

Linda appeared in the second Terminator movie titled 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' which released in the year 1991 but was killed off in the third movie 'Terminator: Rise of the Machines'. In the fourth Terminator movie called 'Salvation', only her voice was heard.

On Wednesday, Arnold shared a throwback picture of himself and Linda on the sets from the second film 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' along with a picture of the two recreating the same pose after almost 27 years.



 

He captioned the image, "Happy birthday to my dear friend Linda Hamilton. One of my favorite co-stars, a true badass, and a wonderful human being. I’m pumped to be back together again".

Linda was spotted in Spain in the summer when she was first seen back in character as Sarah Connor. The movie reboot is set to release in November 2019. The new Terminator also features newcomers including the likes of Mackenzie Davis, Diego Boneta, Gabriel Luna, and Natalia Reyes.

The movie will feature Mackenzie Davis as an assassin whose character would have time-traveled from the future to the present setting of the film. The Canadian actress made her film debut in 'Smashed' and also appeared in 'Breathe In', 'That Awkward Moment', 'The Martian', 'Blade Runner 2049', and 'The F Word'. The new Terminator will be played by Luna who is well known for his role as Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider on the ABC action superhero series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 

James Cameron was asked whether Arnold would portray a "human character" and he told TheArnoldFans.com about a 'prototype' for Arnold's original character from the year 1984, T-800, saying that "they grew the organic outer layer that they grew the Terminator from".

"Yeah, you got to ask yourself: 'Why did they make these characters look and sound like Arnold?' There has to be a reason. So yeah, it has flashed through my mind that there has to have been a prototype. There has to have been a guy whose DNA was harvested from him and they grew the organic outer layer that they grew the Terminator from. So there presumably was a real person at some point," he continued. 

"Now, the question is, did that person have some sort of meaning to Skynet on WHY they chose that one (Arnold)?" he added. "Like a whole rack of Terminators and the one that happened to be the Arnold model just happened to be closest to the door going out to the time displacement center and all the others looked different?" he continued. 

The film is being directed by Deadpool's Tim Miller whereas the original Terminator and the sequel was directed by James Cameron who was married to Linda Hamilton between 1997 and 1999. James is currently with Suzy Amis and the couple have three children together. Cameron is the producer on the new Terminator movie.
