Natalia Reyes' Hollywood Dreams Ended After Arnold Schwarzenegger's Failed Terminator Movie

Colombian actress Natalia Reyes began her acting career at a young age and starred in various Colombian television productions. She became a well-known name in Hollywood after she starred as Daniella “Dani” Ramos in Tim Miller’s 2019 movie, Terminator: Dark Fate.

The movie was the actress’ first big Hollywood project so she couldn’t mess up the opportunity to work with big stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton. Reyes played Dani in the movie, a character that played a crucial role in the storyline. Despite James Cameron’s efforts to revive the franchise, Terminator: Dark Fate was a failure, taking away Reyes’ stardom as well.

In the movie, her character was hunted by Rev-9, the main antagonist of Terminator: Dark Fate, played by Gabriel Luna.
