Linda Hamilton was born on September 26, 1956 in Maryland. The pretty blonde is very early passionate about the theater and takes her first steps on stage by interpreting plays by Aeschylus or Arthur Miller. In 1979, the young woman leaves everything to try her luck in California and lands in Hollywood with six dollars in her pocket. Four years later, director James Cameron chose her to play the lead female role of Terminator. Linda became world famous as Sarah Connor, the young woman relentlessly pursued by the machine played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. In 1987, she landed an important role in the lawyer series Beauty and the Beast before returning to the role of Sarah in the Terminator sequel. But Linda refused to be confined to physical roles and turned more to TV movies.
