TriviaDaughters: Sage Ariel (12 October 1999), Alcamy (b. 1987). His father was a Merchant Marine seaman nicknamed "Icewater". Left home at the age of twelve. There was talk of having him reprise his role as Detective Vukovich in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003). The idea was to have his character bound in a wheelchair (after having survived the events of the original film). That idea, however, was eventually rejected. Has had at least two franchise characters written for him over the years. James Cameron originally wrote The Terminator (1984) character with him in mind, as did Victor Salva with the Creeper from the Jeepers Creepers (2001) movies. In addition to having faced off against lethal aliens in the "Alien" and "Predator" films, he has also appeared in a film about more benevolent aliens: Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977). He was James Cameron's original choice for the title role in The Terminator (1984) when the concept was for a machine that could blend into a crowd. Cameron had even made concept drawings of Henriksen as the Terminator. When the concept was changed, and Arnold Schwarzenegger was cast, Henriksen was re-cast as Det. Vukovich. When Cameron made Aliens (1986), he cast Henriksen as Bishop, an android. Enjoys pottery and has been doing it for over 40 years. He was walking through a hotel lobby in Romania (where he was wrapping up another film) when he was offered One Point O (2004). Loves to vacation in Hawaii. He is the only actor besides Sigourney Weaver to appear in more than one "Alien" movie. Bears a striking resemblance to actor Stephen McHattie, with whom he is often confused. They even once played twin brothers, on an episode of the '80s TV show "Beauty and the Beast" called "Snow".
