Remembering the Leslie
Leslie’s role in Terminator 2, the only movie in her name, is quite impressive. The movie truly depicts her worthiness to James Cameron. Who perfectly used the actions and emotions of twins to cast out movie scenes. If you have watched the movie, you may have noticed the reflection of Linda (Sarah Connor) during the resetting of T-800 was portrayed by Leslie. Besides, she also appeared at the moment when T-1000 morphed taking the identity of Sarah Conner. The motive behind the same is to not use CGI giving real feelings to the audiences.
Leslie helped James in reviving a deleted scene and replacing Linda when she got hurt while shooting in an elevator. It happens because Linda forgets to use the earplugs while using a gun leading to permanent hearing loss. At that crucial moment, Leslie’s performance comes to her aid.
