Actors Who Were Left Permanently Damaged After An On-Set Accident

Linda Hamilton In Terminator 2: Judgement Day

Linda Hamilton transformed into Sarah Connors in the 1991 Terminator 2 movie. It was one of the first times that a female actor was a true action star in a blockbuster movie, which paved the way for many we see today. But, it didn’t come without a price.

During a scene where she was trying to escape the psych ward and reluctantly accepted help from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new Terminator, she forgot to put her earplugs in. Arnold let off a big blast in the elevator and the amplified sound caused Hamilton permanent hearing loss.
