Robert Patrick portrayed the T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).

Biography

Born 5 November 1958, Marietta, Georgia, USA, Patrick is perhaps best known as the actor who played the human guise of the T-1000. Immediately after being cast in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Patrick took a martial arts crash course, and began exhaustive strength, endurance, and weapons-training sessions. "For three months," he says, "all I did was sleep, eat, take vitamins, and train.". Learning traditional martial arts further enabled Patrick to minimize emotional facial expressions. Robert Patrick has played the T-1000 in three different movies: Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Wayne's World (1992) and Last Action Hero (1993). He then took up the character once again for theme park attraction T2 3-D: Battle Across Time, a short film filmed in a 3-D process that makes the film appear to jump out at you. James Cameron describes his casting of Robert Patrick on the Terminator 2 DVD, as a deliberate contrast to the original Terminator character portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger: "I wanted to find someone who would be a good contrast to Arnold. If the 800 series is a kind of human Panzer tank, then the 1000 series had to be a Porsche." He is often cast as a villain due to his intense presence and cold blue eyes.

Robert reprised his role as the T-1000 in a Direct TV commercial, saying "People think I'm here to terminate John Connor. But, really, I just wanna hang out and watch his Direct TV."[1] In addition to playing the T-1000, Robert has also portrayed Agent Doggett on the X-Files and Col. Sumner in the series premiere of "Stargate Atlantis".
