Unfortunately Linda suffered two miscarriages while with James Cameron before they had a daughter in 1993.

However, once she started working in children's theater she realized she loved acting.
Trivia: Linda is an LA Dodgers fan.
Linda went to Wicomico Junior High, Salisbury, Maryland, with her identical twin sister, Leslie Hamilton Gearren, who incidently was Linda's double in 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day.' Leslie is seen when Sarah is remembering playing with John at the park and when the T-1000
is impersonating her.
If you've been to Universal Studios then you've probably seen Linda because she reprised her 'Terminator' character, Sarah Connor, for the theme park attraction T2-3D, a short film filmed in a new 3-D process that makes the film really appear to jump out at you.
While attending Washington College, the acting professor told her she had no hope of earning a living as an actress.
After her role in Terminator 2, she learned that she made such an impression as the pumped and ferociously tough Sarah Conner that she was typecast into being offered only roles for similarly tough characters.
Turned down a chance to reprise the role of Sarah Connor in 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.'
She divorced 3rd husband James Cameron after discovering he was having an affair with actress Suzy Amis during the making of the movie 'Titanic.' Her divorce from him was the second most expensive divorce next to Steven Spielberg's divorce from Amy Irving. She stood to take half of his earnings - close to $50 million dollars.
In September 2004, she revealed she has long suffered from bipolar disorder and was a compulsive eater as a child.
Auditioned for the role of Capt. Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager.
Where Is She Now: Currently she lives with her two children in Malibu. Most recently she starred
in a few movies still to come out this year (see credits). In fact the film

Perlman. Linda and Ron have remained friends throughout the years.
