Terminator fans are eagerly awaiting for the release of Terminator: Dark Fate, which marks the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton as T-800 and Sarah Conner. Along with the deadly Terminator duo, the Tim Miller directorial also stars Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna and Diego Boneta in pivotal roles. Speaking of Gabriel, the actor stars as the dangerous and viciously advanced Terminator prototype, REV-9. We got glimpses of just how deadly REV-9 is in the trailers of Terminator: Dark Fate.

While talking about Luna, Arnold was all praises for his young co-star sharing, "Gabriel reminded me a lot of Robert Patrick [who played the liquid-metal T-1000 in Terminator 2]. He was the leaner, meaner version of me, the terminator that is not relying on just strength and speed but is relying on other abilities. Even more abilities than the T-1000 had. The REV-9 is the most sophisticated model that you can get. The way that is forged is quite shocking – what he is capable of doing."

For Schwarzenegger, Gabriel had to be in the best shape to do absolute justice to REV-9. "It was in my interests, and the movie’s interests, that Gabriel was in his best shape. He didn’t have to be huge, but he had to have a great musculature, to be very fast, very flexible. He trained two, three hours every day, and it was very important that he did that training in the most efficient way. I wanted to do everything in my experience, having been a part of bodybuilding for more than 50 years, to have him learn everything that I have learned in a short period of time because he didn’t have 50 years to get there," the 72-year-old actor shared.

"So, I worked out with him in the morning. We talked about training and diet and all that stuff and he was a great student. I believe in health and fitness [smokes his cigar] and a vegan diet. But, yes, I do have a sweet tooth. And I do like, every so often, some Schnapps. They are all my vices," Arnold added.
