Linda Carroll Hamilton is an American film and television actress born in Salisbury, Maryland on September 26th, 1956. She is best known for playing the role of heroic Sarah Connor in James Cameron's cyborg time-travel film Terminator and it's 1991 sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

In the horror genre, Linda played the role of Vicky Robeson in Fritz Kiersch's 1984 adaptation of the Stephen King short story Children of the Corn. The film was released the same year that Linda worked on Terminator.

In 1986, Linda starred in King Kong Lives, directed by John Guillermin. She was cast in the leading (human) role of Doctor Amy Franklin.

Career-wise, Linda's work in the horror genre took a sharp decline into the world of the direct-to-video market. Moreover, she ended up playing in Z-rated films for companies such as The Asylum. Such was the case in 2014 when she had the female lead of Admiral Linda Hansen in the giant squid movie Bermuda Tentacles.
