  • She really shows what it's like to be alive again after dying and struggling with a boyfriend who she can't touch or she'll die and finding her real mother and seeing her father again and all other issues with being technically dead and alive at the same time.--HuskersRule 19:57, 5 March 2009 (EST)

  • I really like the way she tempers the full on crazy of Sarah Connor in T2 with the nurturing mother role. The crazy is still there but generally isn't over powering except in a few key scenes. It's a very nice balance. --The-jam 17:17, 19 February 2009 (EST)
  • Lena Headey is one of my least favorite things about TSSC; she has some odd line readings and often her Sarah Connor comes off as whiny rather than strong. --Davidscarter 18:55, 26 February 2009 (EST)
  • She shows what it's like to try to be a normal mother and also protect her son from the Terminators and train him into the leader he supposed to be in the future while not becoming too crazy.--HuskersRule 19:57, 5 March 2009 (EST)

  • Her portrayal of her character's physical and mental breakdown as the cancer slowly takes hold is an impressive bit of acting. Add in the romantic scenes and the Baltar confrontation and near murder and she demonstrated a great acting range through the half season that aired in 2008. --The-jam 17:17, 19 February 2009 (EST)
