I’m always finding unusual ways of looking at movies that often (and arguably probably should) go unnoticed. But I just can’t help myself, and you get to be the lucky recipients of my musings. This time, I noticed that at least six actors and actresses in the first two films in the Alien series have surprisingly appropriate names for the roles they play. I hope you enjoy my explanations of how they fit.
Carrie Henn’s Newt gets carried a lot in the third act of Aliens by Ripley, who acts as protective of her as a mother hen.
William Hope’s Lt. Gorman dies trying to escape Hadley’s Hope, and his crewmates have to leave him behind. I guess the motto for that colony on LV-426 should have been, “Abandon Hope, all ye who enter here.”
