Michael Biehn reprises his role as Terminator's Sergeant Kyle Reese to tell people to stay at home

Terminator star Michael Biehn has reprised his role as Sergeant Kyle Reese to tell people to stay at home during the coronavirus outbreak.

In a video posted online, Biehn recreates a famous scene in hit 1984 sci-fi flick The Terminator during which he warns Sarah Connor, played by Linda Hamilton, about Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 killing machine sent by Skynet to terminate her.

Wearing a black mask over his face, Biehn channels his former character resistance fighter Reese, changing up the words of the speech just enough to match the current threat facing the world. 

'Listen and understand, that virus is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or shame, and it absolutely will not stop until we stay at home,' the 63-year-old barks, before stating his character's name: 'Kyle Reese... I'm out.'

The video, which is sure to be a huge hit with fans of the Terminator movie franchise, was posted on Facebook by Biehn's wife Jennifer on Saturday and is being shared across the web.

And in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Biehn says he made the clip as a bit of fun but posted it online to get a 'serious' message out there.

'When you think about it, the Terminator is very similar to the coronavirus, in the sense that it's an unknown killer which took the world by surprise and it won't stop and I'd like to get the message out to all the people to stay at home,' he said.

'Can you imagine if the coronavirus was like the flu and children were getting it, it's really scary to think.

'I don't know exactly how you can contain this virus unless you can contain people. Everyone needs to stay at home.

'We've been pretty locked down here for at least two weeks wearing first of all scarves and then we were able to get some masks that I ordered online about a month ago.

'We've been very, very wary of it, but until it hits you in the face, it's hard to imagine. It just gets scarier and scarier.'

Biehn says he improvised the video after a walk around the block with his wife and five-year-old son Dashiell. 

'I'm a gregarious person and was just riffing and having fun and for some reason it just came to me and I basically did those lines and threw coronavirus in there,' he said.

'And my wife Jennifer videoed it and was like "oh you've gotta put that online". I was gonna send it to a small circle of friends and family members as a bit of fun, but now it's being picked up everywhere.

'I would like to think I can make a serious message, but to be honest I thought I'm just Michael Biehn, I'm not Cher or Lady Gaga, I'm not that relevant really anymore, so I'm surprised people are taking so much of an interest.'

The 63-year-old, who is semi-retired but still works as an actor, has five sons from three different relationships, his youngest being five-year-old Dashiell with current wife Jennifer.

He spends most of the year at his home in Bizbee, Arizona but is currently in lockdown in his second house in Thousand Oaks, California.

The veteran actor, who starred in The Terminator movie in 1984 directed by James Cameron, as well as the sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment in 1991, says he's mostly worried about his 88-year-old mother, who is currently quarantined away from the family.

'I don't know where this is going to end, as in the enforcement of people staying at home,' he said.

'I don't know any more than you do but I'm guessing we're locked down until at least the end of July.

'July 31st is my birthday so it would be nice if everybody felt comfortable going out and going to work around then, I just don't know if that's going to be the case.'
