So, how old is John Connor?

Posted in Gripe, Sarah Connor Chronicles, Summer Glau with tags , , on January 27, 2008 by nerdchieftain

In T2, John Connor was 10.  He was born Feb 1985.

So, on Sep 9, 19992000, the date of time travel, he was 14.6 15.6 years old.  I suppose this makes him the right age to be a Freshman.  And for his Senior Gift, he will prevent Judgement Day.  Or his mom will… or something.

I’m not one to gripe about consistency, as you can see in time travel thread. 

But this one is bugging me.  I suppose it bothers me because I had the timeline all wrong in my head until I went over to the terminator wiki and looked at the dizzying time plot article.

Anyone else having trouble imagining John (actor age 20) and Cameron (actress age 16 26) as 14-year old Freshman?  They look like Juniors at least to me.

Of course, Sarah Connor doesn’t look a day past 28, and the character is in fact 32 or 41 (depending on conflicing birth days in the films.)  Of course, Lena Headey is 31 in RL.
