Linda Hamilton talks about Lena

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, but it's been really quiet in Lenaland... and not many news regarding Game of Thrones either. All we know is that by now a rough cut of the pilot has been viewed by HBO executives but we probably still have to wait till March to know for sure whether it will be picked up or not. Apart from that Lena has been mentioned by Linda Hamilton who originally played Sarah Connor in the first two Terminator movies in a recent interview she gave for Digital Spy:
She was very good, very good. I know how difficult it is to step into someone's shoes, or to fill someone's shoes. I would never want to be the standard. I guess it's great that I'm the standard, but each one of us has our own special gifts that we can bring to a part. She wasn't trying to be Linda Hamilton, she was trying to play Sarah Connor. Her version is just as valid as mine.
As you all probably remember the choice of Lena for the character of Sarah Connor in the tv series had been harshly criticized mostly by Terminator fans and it's great to see Linda Hamilton talking in positive terms about Lena's performance, which she had done before too actually. Lena did an amazing job portraying this character, probably one of her strongest performances. I hope by now no one doubts anymore that she was by far the best choice for this role! 
On YouTube you can check out a fantastic video by Achilles73 with both Sarah Connors action!!

I've always liked Linda Hamilton - she seems so down-to-earth unlike many celebrities. I'm really happy to hear that she honestly respected Lena's work on TSCC. Classy lady who looked at her portrayal open-mindedly and with fresh eyes!
