Claire Danes Talks Terminator 3

Dan Epstein was able to talk to Claire Danes about her role in Terminator 3 as Kate Miller. Here are some snippets about T3:

DE (Dan Epstein): How was shooting Terminator 3?

CD (Claire Danes): Different from The Hours [laughs]. It was good. I had a blast. I never did a genre of that kind and on that scale. I was pretty overwhelmed. I play Kate Miller. She's a veterinarian and she's engaged to kind of a conservative kind of guy, and the Terminator abducts her. John Connor comes to save her and adventures unfold.

DE: Did you emulate Sigourney Weaver in Aliens?

CD: I do have awesome lines. But I'm sworn to secrecy. I'm pretty impressive in it.

DE: Who was more threatening to work with: The exoskeleton, or Meryl?

CD: The skeleton. In Terminator, I played most of my scenes to a piece of yellow tape in front of a green screen. When audiences first see the movie, that will be the first time I've seen in it. The director, Jonathan Mostow, is a really good action director. He understands suspense and tension. It's going to be a really cool, fast chase.

DE: Would you do another Terminator movie?

CD: Well, I'm contracted to. I don't know if I'm going to make it a habit to pursue all the franchises, but I really loved doing as many different kinds of movies as possible. I haven't been too stereotyped and I'm grateful for that.
