I hope Lena Headey knows how much I love her as Sarah Connor. Sometimes I get so flustered it doesn’t come out right in interviews, but I am so happy to have Sarah Connor back in my life, I just want to give her a big hug. That would be inappropriate though. She’s a married woman and I’m supposed to be a professional.

“I really feel like there are people that still doubt the thing but I'm happy,” Heady said. “I'm doing my job and it's what I know. I think they'll get it. One day, someone will be like, 'Oh, okay.' I think last year, because it was the new season, everybody was kind of so worried about it and it was such a weird idea, the concept, for some people to deal with that they're going to make a TV show. But I think I do my job.”
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is back for a second season. It’s like God personally took time away from other business to make sure I got my entertainment. That might have scared Heady off, so I just asked her what was coming up for Sarah.

“It’s been an interesting season. I feel that Sarah has taken kind of a backseat in terms of being proactive and taking care of business. I think that we’re going to see a lot more of John taking control and then making steps towards becoming the man he has to be to take on his tasks. I think this season for Sarah is kind of her losing slight control over everything pretty much, and my feeling is that I think there’s a slow madness sort of happening in her because she feels that everything’s kind of out of reach right now.”
Despite all that change ahead, Heady is feeling more at home in the role. “Definitely, I think gearing up for a second season makes you feel more comfortable because you know you're going back. I really truly think this season we didn't get to do what we wanted to do last season. So it's really very cool.”
Besides, you don’t start playing Sarah Connor so you can play a happy person. “I don't think she can [be happy]. That's the thing that excites me about this season and possibly more to come is that I want to explore her, I think there's a massive insanity in her. I think what we've seen so far is this controlled being. I think yet to come is to see how unstable she really is under all this and how he's just keeping it, keeping it, keeping it together.”
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles returns September 8th on FOX.
