I never expected to be back, says Terminator Arnie

Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed he never expected to be back in the latest movie in the blockbuster film franchise.

The star (inset), who shot to fame as the merciless assassin in the original film, stars alongside Matt Smith and Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke in the fifth film in the series Terminator Genisys.

"I was excited about the new film but I thought they might switch me for someone new, like they do in the James Bond films, so I was happily surprised to be offered the role," he told Graham Norton. "It was fun to get back into shape and in to the character - it was like riding a bike and I got straight back into it."

The other guests on last night's show included Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal who revealed his acting career got an unlikely start - playing a cat in one of his sister Maggie's pet projects.
