Character Bio

Cameron Phillip photo
Cameron Phillip is a reprogrammed Terminator sent from the future to protect John Connor and his mother, Sarah. Cameron is the most realistic cyborg yet encountered by the pair. Her series is unspecified, but she possesses detailed programming of social behavior that better allowed her to approach and blend in with humans. She assists John and Sarah Connor in their efforts to prevent the rise of Skynet.

Cameron is a Terminator whom John Connor sent back from 2027 to protect his earlier self. Her model and exact capabilities are not known, but she can mimic human mannerisms better than the T-800 model could, and she can also consume food, a first for Terminators. Her name is a homage to Terminator film franchise creator 'James Cameron'. 'Summer Glau' had not seen the Terminator films prior to being cast as Cameron Phillips, whose role in the series was initially kept concealed but was later revealed to be a Terminator sent from the future to protect John.

Friedman had previously wanted to cast Glau in a pilot he wrote four years prior to The Sarah Connor Chronicles, but she was already committed to Serenity. Glau almost did not audition for the role because of her preconceptions of the character and she felt that she did not have "that Terminator look". On playing Cameron, Glau said she was "intimidated" by the role because it was a challenge for her to balance the human and robot characteristics. Later in the series it is revealed that Cameron stole the identity of a resistance fighter, Alison Young, before being reprogrammed.
