I dunno, after watching The Sarah Connor Chronicles, I have a bit of difficulty taking her seriously.....

Naomi Watts or Helen Hunt. Helen for the tough, severe, I don't think of myself as pretty Linden. Naomi for the pretty, wheaten tresses, vulnerable, I cry all the time Linden. So a clone of their mixed DNA. Smile



Naomi Watts...hmmm...I think she may fit my conceptions pretty well now that you mention it. I only remember her from King Kong but within the framework of that film I see it.

I saw Eastern Promises last week and, boy, Naomi Watts looks more like Linden in that movie than in KK. She's even a doctor in that film.

I always liked Amanda Peet as Linden. She played Matt Damon's wife in Syriana and played Paris in Identity. Would also cast Eric Bana as Bannor. Still stuck on the rest of the cast though. Perhaps Daniel Day Lewis as Covenant but can't see him signing up to a series of films.

To me, the the image that comes to my mind of Linden (and shows my age) is the actress who plays the mother of the little boy who is abducted by the aliens in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Shes not beautiful necessarily, but very real life-like,and the gamut of emotions she shows for her son, is EXACTLY the same as Linden shows for Jeremiah

Melinda Dillon played Jillian Guiler in Close Encounters. I agree that she looks quite like the Linden Avery I've always imagined.



However, an even better Linden (IMO) would be Judith O'Dea, who played Barbra in the original Night of the Living Dead.



Judith as Barbra was catatonic half the time, and when she wasn't, she was pining for her missing brother Johnny.
That acting background makes her perfect to play the hapless and annoying Linden Avery. Mr. Green

Of course, they're now both too old for the part. Ah, well...

I agree. The expression on that face perfectly matches the kind of person I associate with that character.

My mental image of Linden is pretty much like this picture, but with a somewhat leaner face and longer, finer features, and the blonde hair not as frosty. My mental image also has Linden's hair somewhat longer but thinking about it the length shown here is probably more like what a focussed professional like Linden might choose as a matter of practicality.

How old was Linden when she met TC?
I figure she was just out of her internship at a hospital and
she was accepted a job at a hospital. That would put her between 28 to 30.
The last chronicles she would have been around 40..

Those ages are pretty much what I have always thought were Linden's ages in the two trilogies.

I completely agree .. Naomi Watts would be perfect .. closer hair colour .. she has that kinda vulnerable vibe and yet can muster strength when push comes to shove.

Jodie Foster has always been my Linden prototype...

Note: Sorry about the size. I tried to resize the images but it seems that part of BBCode isn't active.
