Dear Lena Headey

The persistent rumors that you won't reprise the role of Sarah Connor if there is a TSCC movie are making me sad. Do you know the only reason I've been part of this fandom is because of how awesome you were in the show? Sure, the writing was great and the other actors and their characters were great, but it's the character of Sarah Connor and more specifically your performance that sucked me into the series.

You're an actor and it was a paycheck. I get that. But when your job is to represent an iconic character to millions of fans, there are strings attached. I doubt T3 would've been much better even with a script that included Sarah Connor, but Linda Hamilton's refusal to return to the franchise made it unbearable. Please don't do the same to The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

I know there are no guarantees about a film at this point, but everyone who was involved in the show seems to be pulling for one and has said so publicly. Your continued silence on the topic allow the rumors that you wouldn't be in it to thrive. So please do us a favor and speak up soon. Because if you're walking away from a future TSCC movie, then so am I.

- Roxy

What rumors?! ;______;

Haven't both Brian and Thomas said that everyone would love to reprise their roles?!

It's rumors in the fandom and they've been going on for a long time. I'm worn down, I tell ya! But yes, Brian and Thomas and Summer have all said everyone would return. I'm sure they know better than anyone since they worked with her.

But still, the fact that she's the only one who's never mentioned an interest only keeps the rumors alive. I'm hoping once she starts doing press for GoT that she'll get asked about TSCC.

That Lena is a sly one though... I'd be shocked if she *didn't* equivocate! At least until everything's official. ;)

Equivocation is fine, but silence is painful!

ack I can't even.

It's nothing new. Just same old same old. But someone mentioned it to me again earlier this evening and I can't take it anymore. ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!

Lena doesn't talk about anything. I mean, when was the last time she had an interview or anything of the sort? A long time. Lena is the private type actor. You don't hear from her or about her until she has a project going. She won't say anything either way. So the rumors are just that... rumors. I'd take Brian's and Thomas' word about everyone coming back over the random rumors of random people.

Yeah that's bee my take on it. There's no reason to think she wouldn't play Sarah, but I am tired of people saying it. I hope once she actually does an interview again (I assume as Game of Thrones filming gets going, she'll do a few) that the topic of a possible TSCC movie will come up and the rumors will go away.

I'm with schmacky on this one. No one's ever asked her directly and I can't recall one interview she's given since the show was cancelled (the Space Girls Q&A doesn't count!) Rumours mean a big, fat, bugger-all especially if they're perpetuated by fans who didn't really like her in the first place.

Personally, I can't see them getting everything and everyone organised and in place and her turning around and saying "actually, guys, I just don't want to." Specially if her play-mate Mr Dekker is on board. But that might just be me, blinded by my unfailing adoration of the lass ;-)

Scheduling the damn thing, now that might be more of an issue...

Are you suggesting this is a jameronian conspiracy?! I never thought they could be so devious!!!!!!!! We need to order up some jameronectomies STAT.

I'm not worried about scheduling. They could film in the spring in between network and HBO filming schedules.

This is me, hoping this rumor is as true as any rumor in Hollywood.. I.e. someone made it up.
Jun. 24th, 2010 05:55 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it's just a rumor that's been circulating in the fandom for a long time and I don't honestly give it any merit. But it would be nice if Lena mentioned something about TSCC next time she's interviewed (like Thomas, Summer and Brian have), so the rumor could stop.
Jun. 24th, 2010 07:47 pm (UTC)

What is this rumor of which you speak?

I am so in the dark.
Jun. 25th, 2010 07:14 am (UTC)
Just fandom nonsense, but sometimes it wears me down because I hear it much too often.
Jun. 24th, 2010 08:56 pm (UTC)
I'm not suprised that there is a rumor going around about this.

It's no secret that Lena didn't like the experance of being on TSCC (as evident by some interviews from other cast members and producers.) I mean I think she liked the cast and some of the crew, but I think she didn't like the negative response to her taking the Sarah Connor role by the insufferible terminator fan boys. (I'm sorry nerds, Lena is my only Sarah Connor.) Plus the network was always giving her shit about something.

So yeah I don't think Lena was cut out to be the kind of actor Summer is as it counts for big blockbuster Televison. (I think it's the reason she never showed up at Fan events.)

But it would be really sad if Lena never comes back, just because she is my one and only Sarah Connor.
Jun. 25th, 2010 07:38 am (UTC)
I think that stuff about people not accepting her as Sarah Connor was just very early on in the first season. It was all dumb and it faded away quickly (as far as I could tell) once people saw that this wasn't just gong to be a TV series version of T2. it was a much richer character-driven drama. And Lena totally owned the role.

But it would be really sad if Lena never comes back, just because she is my one and only Sarah Connor.

Peoples, as if by magic:

06/24/10: Any questions for Lena? I'm doing a Q&A with her for the site. Send your questions to me and I'll take some of the best ones.


Not gonna get a better chance than that!
Jun. 25th, 2010 07:08 am (UTC)
Yay! Such perfect timing. And I sent in my question :)

Terminator: The Lorelei Gilmore Chronicles
Only a troll, or a debate competitor, could maintain that Lena Headey doesn't OWN the role of Sarah Connor.

SRSLY, Linda Hamilton threw in the towel. Would they rather have Lauren Graham? That's just WRONG!

tack, somewhere in Dixie.
