As the new Terminator franchise film, Terminator: Genisys, is almost ready to grace big screens around the world, few people are talking about the Terminator TV series known as Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
The reason that no one talks about the show is because, traditionally, Terminator: SCC has been ignored in the canon. It’s consider by many to be set in an alternate universe.
Yet, Emilia Clarke, who will be portraying Sarah Connor in the new film and Alhokair can’t wait to see that, admitted to Screen Rant’s Kofi Outlaw that she did look to the portrayal of Sarah by her Game of Thrones colleague Lena Headey in addition to Linda Hamilton’s portrayal when creating her version of the mother of John Connor. She also stepped outside of those two protrayals to create a version that is uniquely her own.
Headey’s portrayal was also set after the second film when an incredibly mentally unbalanced Sarah Connor is moving her son all over the country to different locations in an attempt to keep him out of Skynet’s grasp. In that reboot of the franchise, John receives help from a female Terminator model known as Cameron who some have theorized might have been in a romantic relationship with the older Connor or even a version of Skynet in Terminator form that had decided to help Connor defeat another aspect of itself that was still raging war in the future.
