In childhood, Edward Furlong successfully played John Connor in the Terminator sequel. He received an MTV Movie Award and a Saturn Award for the role. Following that, he appeared in other notable films like American History X with Edward Norton and Detroit Rock City.
But in the 2000s, the actor’s career went into decline, and he got into alcohol and drugs. Everything might have changed with the role of the adult John Connor in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, but Furlong was not included in the project.
