Life Story of Michael Biehn

Michael Connell Biehn was born on July 31, 1956 in Anniston, Alabama, to Marcia (Connell) and Don Biehn, a lawyer. He grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska, and at age 14 moved with his family to Lake Havasu, Arizona, where he won a drama scholarship to the University of Arizona. He left prematurely two years later to pursue an acting career in Hollywood. His first big role was as a psychotic fan stalking Lauren Bacall in The Fan (1981) and later appeared in The Lords of Discipline (1983). He hit the big-time when he was cast as Kyle Reese, the man sent back through time to stop Arnold Schwarzenegger in James Cameron's The Terminator (1984). This established a good working relationship with Cameron, a relationship that should have catapulted Biehn to international stardom. He starred in Cameron's subsequent films, Aliens (1986) and The Abyss (1989), the latter a standout performance as unstable Navy SEAL officer Lt. Hiram Coffey. In the 1990s he starred in films like Navy Seals (1990), K2 (1991) and was particularly memorable as Johnny Ringo in Tombstone (1993). Biehn is married and the father of four sons.

Michael Biehn, Lisa Collins, and Lindsey Haun in Deep Red (1994)

In James Cameron's The Terminator (1984), he gets bitten on the hand by another character. He has suffered the same on-screen injury in every James Cameron film he has been in: in The Terminator (1984) he is bitten by Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) in Aliens (1986) Rebecca "Newt" Jorden (Carrie Henn) does the same thing, and in The Abyss (1989) Virgil "Bud" Brigman (Ed Harris) does the honors. This was alluding to him being bitten on the hand in James Cameron's version of Spider-Man.

Michael Biehn in Deep Red (1994)

He almost did not get the role of Kyle Reese in The Terminator (1984) because at his first audition he spoke in a Southern accent. He had just come another audition for a stage production of "Cat On a Hot Tin Roof" and had not been able to shake the accent, and the producers did not want the character Kyle Reese to seem regionalized. After calling and talking with Biehn's agent, they gave him another audition and he got the role.

Said that he did not get to interact with Arnold Schwarzenegger very much while filming The Terminator (1984). Ironically, fans often ask him what it was like to work with Arnold.

James Cameron considered using him as the T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), which would have been a reversal of the roles Biehn previously had with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the original. However, Cameron eventually decided against the idea on the basis that it would have been too confusing for the audience.

Michael Biehn and David Caruso in Jade (1995)

Filmed a cameo in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) in which Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) fantasizes a meeting with him, but the scene was cut from the theatrical release; it later became available in the director's edition. Biehn said in an interview that he was not surprised that the scene was cut, seeing as how it had little to do with the film's overall story.

A shot of him as Kyle Reese in the movie The Terminator (1984) was reproduced as the cover-art of the video game Metal Gear (1987). Biehn was chosen as a model as he was then at the peak of his fame, and would be the ideal actor to play Metal Gear's protagonist Solid Snake had Metal Gear been an action movie.

He was considered for the role of Uncle Eddie on Big Love (2006), which would have reunited him with Bill Paxton for the sixth time. Much to his chagrin, the producers turned around and gave the role to Brian Kerwin.
