Arnold Schwarzenegger won the world over when he hit the big screen in "Terminator" back in 1984.

The flick focused on a cyborg who was sent to earth from the future to kill a waitress whose unborn child will one day become the leader of humanity against the machines.

Arnold went on to steal the screen in action flicks like "Predator" to "Total Recall" after, in addition to appearing in all four "Terminator" films.

In 2003, Schwarzenegger was elected as Governor of California, and again in 2006. He faced controversy in 2011 when reports surfaced that he had an extramarital affair with his house keeper which led to his divorce from longtime wife Maria Shriver.

Linda Hamilton starred in the 1984 flick as Sarah Connor, the waitress who's carrying the future leader of mankind. Hamilton likewise reprised her role in 1991's "Terminator 2: Judgement Day," when a cyborg (Arnold) who looks identical to the vicious killer from her past teams up with her son, John Connor (Edward Furlong), to fight a far more advanced machine.

Linda ended up marrying her "Terminator" and "T2" director James Cameron in 1997 ... but two years later the pair called it quits.

Most recently, Linda has appeared on the TV series "Chuck" and "Lost Girl." She shares one child with Cameron and has another with her second ex-husband Bruce Abbott

Nicholas Stahl played John Connor in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" in 2003.

Once again, Arnie was sent back to protect the 19-year-old and his future wife from another robotic killer. Stahl went on to star in "Sin City" and most recently appeared in "Away From Here."

Like Furlong, this John Connor had some run-ins with the law as well.

He had multiple drug-related arrests in Los Angeles from 2012-2013, was arrested for "touching himself" in an adult video store and went missing twice before being placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold.

Nicholas has kept a low-profile since his last arrest in 2013 for meth possession.

Kristanna Loken played the cyborg, T-X, in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," who's sent to kill the 19-year-old drifter and his soon-to-be-wife.

Loken appeared on the TV series "The L Word" after "T3," in addition to a number of sci-fi thrillers.

Kristanna briefly dated actress Michelle Rodriguez in 2006 before tying the knot with Noah Danby in 2008 ... and divorcing a year later.

Today, the New York native has three flicks in production.

Claire Danes played Kate Brewster in "T3," a vet who becomes John Connor's future wife.

Bryce Dallas Howard took over the role in "Terminator Salvation," but Danes has been doing just fine without that flick on her resume. She currently stars as Carrie Mathison on "Homeland," a role she's won two Emmys for so far. She also picked one up for her work in "Temple Grandin."

The blonde beauty married Hugh Dancy in 2009 and they have one child together. 

Are you looking forward to seeing "Terminator Genisys" July 1st?

Hopefully the latest actor to step into John Connor's shoes, Jason Clarke, manages to avoid the curse associated with the role!
