She appeared in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), in the apocalyptic playground scene, as a double for Linda Hamilton.

(By the end of the movie, in the factory, two Sarah Conners can be seen in the same take: the "real" Sarah Conner and the T-1000 disguised as Sarah (confusing her son as to who is his real mother). The fake Sarah Conner is actually Linda Hamilton's real life twin sister in her first and only film role. In this case, no special effect or stand-in was necessary.-info found at www.eeggs.com)
