Chief Master Sergeant William Candy is a member of the United States Air Force's Combat Control career field, a special operations career tasked with Air Traffic Control duties in austere and non-permissive environments as well as Close Air Support for other SOF teams.


Sgt. Candy was selected by Cyber Research Systems as the physical model for the artificial skin of the Model 101 for the Terminators. Candy's jovial Southern voice, however, was replaced by Sherwood Olson, the assistant of Thomas Shelby.


Behind the Scenes[]

  • William Candy, as the physical model of Model 101, is portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger but dubbed by an unknown actor who used a Southern accent for the character. It has been rumoured that actor Samuel L. Jackson dubbed Candy's voice, however, this is never comfirmed.
  • In a bit of humorous back-fill, Sherwood Olson stated that Candy's voice can be "fixed" and he was dubbed by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  • The "Sgt. Candy scene" is not present in the final cut of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, but it does appear as a bonus feature on the DVD as well as an unlockable bonus cinematic on the Terminator 3: The Redemption videogame. The scene is also featured in the novelization of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
  • In the Making of the Video Game from the Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines DVD, it is implied that this scene was filmed to be used as a cut scene, and not actually intended to be used in the theatrical release.
