Sigourney Weaver Talks More About "Avatar"

by | April 11, 2007 | Comments

It’s pretty difficult to not be impressed by Ms. Sigourney Weaver. But with two recent indies under her belt and a brief window in her theatrical career, the classy gal is just getting ready for "Avatar" duty.

The long-awaited and far-off "Avatar" will reunite Ms. Weaver with her "Aliens" director James Cameron. Earlier this month RT talked to Weaver about reuniting with Cameron on the live-action/animation flick, and she’s continued to talk up the project with The New York Observer.

If the 57-year-old actress feels intimidated by her boss’ state-of-the-art cinema toys, she sure doesn’t show it: "It’s so virtual. It’s very exciting … You know, Aliens had things you can see and touch." (Nerd tidbit: 57 years is also the time Ellen Ripley spent in hypersleep between "Alien" and "Aliens.")

And when discussing the difficulties of acting on a totally blank stage, the actress offers a logical response: "For actors, an empty stage that sort of represents a planet and things like that, it’s easy to imagine for us. We’re so used to being on an empty stage and imagining it’s some drawing room or whatever."
