It seems to me that the worst is over
~ Governor of California

The Governor of California was the governor of the state of California at the time of the 2012 Apocalypse.

Though his ultimate fate is unknown, it is highly possible that he perished in Sacramento as he was assuring the public in a speech that nothing would happen and that they were safe, falling down to the floor as the news station was still broadcasting. 


  • The Governor was portrayed by Lyndall Grant.
  • Based on the Austrian accent and him being called an actor by both himself and Jackson Curtis, it's reasonable to assume that this is supposed to be Arnold Schwarzenegger
    • In reality, the real governor of California in 2012 was Jerry Brown, as Schwarzenegger was term limited in 2011
  • It's reasonable to assume that the Governor of California along with other governors across the US had no knowledge of the 2012 Apocalypse, based on his assurance that the worst was over
    • This likely also would mean that nobody in the US Government besides President Thomas Wilson's closest associates and cabinet knew about the Arks
