Lance James Henriksen is an American actor.
Filmography in Terminator franchise
- He, along with Bill Paxton, are often cited as actors who have played characters that have been killed by a Terminator, an Alien, and a Predator (however the android Bishop was disconnected by Ripley).
- When James Cameron was writing the movie The Terminator (1984), he had originally envisioned Henriksen playing the title role. Cameron went so far as to paint a picture of the Terminator using Henriksen's face, and he had the actor dress-up as the character and attend an Orion Pictures production meeting in character. Regardless, the famous role ultimately went to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
