Terminator: 20 Easter Eggs And References You Must See

7. Sarah Connor's Twin Was Done With Linda Hamilton's Actual Twin

Judgement Day is full of all sorts of crazy special effects, but one of the most effective was the one most easy to create. The film's finale includes the classic/cliche trope of dopplegangers, with the bad guy imitating one of the good guys and trying to convince someone that they're the real McCoy. You've seen it dozens of times before and since. In this case it was Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor trying to convince Edward Furlong's John Connor, with one Sarah stood beside the other in the stand-off as the T-1000 morphed into her. Rather than any fancy special effects, they simply got Linda Hamilton's twin sister Leslie Hamilton Gearren in for the day.
