In the reboot, Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor was orphaned at the age of 9 and spent the majority of her life protected by a Terminator who was programmed to protect, rather than kill. She will be skilled with a sniper rifle but socially awkward.

Speaking to EW, producer David Ellison said: “Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen.

“But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do’. It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”
