Sarah Connor is a fictional character in the Terminator franchise. She is one of the protagonists of The Terminator (1984), Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Terminator Genisys (2015) and Terminator: Dark Fate (2019), as well as the television series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008–2009). The character develops from a timid damsel in distress victim in the first film to a wanted fugitive committing acts of terrorism, a hardened warrior and mother who sacrificed everything for her son’s future and is on the verge of losing touch with her own humanity, and a mentor preparing and protecting a protégée for her destiny. In another timeline, depicted in Terminator Genisys, she is a young, headstrong heroine determined to take control of her own destiny.
Considering this was directed by a guy whose only film at the time was Piranha II: The Spawning. It seems like a miracle.
