Terminator 6 director Tim Miller , said the returning 61- year old Sarah Connor actor Linda Hamilton could beat her fellow “older” 60-year old action star Liam Neeson. Linda Hamilton first appeared as Sarah Connor in the original 1984 Terminator, as she joined forces with a warrior from the future to battle cyborg killer sent to prevent her from giving birth to the savior of mankind. Connor became a true warrior In Terminator 2: Judgment Day, leading to her becoming a female action movie figure.

Miller has explained the importance of Hamilton playing her role of Connor at her “advanced” age:

As strong a character as she was, as meaningful as she was to gender and to action stars everywhere, I think it’s going to make a huge f–king statement to have her be the really seasoned warrior that she’s become.

Miller added a joke about Liam Neeson:

Which is why we’re bringing Liam Neeson in as the bad guy. And she is going to kick his ass. (Laughs.)
