I’m sure there are times when Ridley Scott wishes that interviews made by any of the actors appearing in his movie ‘Prometheus’ would go by him before they are released to the public. This just may be one of those times.
Kate Dickie, who plays a character named Mudow, was recently interviewed by the Scottish tabloid ‘The Star.’ In the course of the interview, she gave details about her role in the movie and a little about some of the scenes that we’ll be seeing. AvP Galaxy was able to retrieve a scan of the article and posted it, however, keep in mind that the interview was from a tabloid and we’ll just keep it at that.
(SPOILERS AHEAD…..SPOILERS AHEAD…..SPOILERS AHEAD…..)
In the interview, Dickie states that she plays a tough first officer called Mudow who helps her fellow crew members after they wake up from cryo-sleep. They’ve been asleep for 5 years and their muscles have atrophied with nonuse, so she helps them get fit only to realize that they are to become victims to creatures that begin stalking them for food and chasing them throughout their spaceship, Prometheus. Dickie’s character, Mudow, lasts 28 minutes before the alien kills her.
Dickie, who has appeared in ‘Game of Thrones’ as Lysa Arryn, dyed her hair blond for the role. “You can get caught up in all that stuff,” she says about the movie, “I don’t feel any pressure. I just get on with the job at hand”
Although she didn’t mention what the Alien would look like, the one person who would know is concept artist Carlos Huante. Huante designed the creatures that will actually appear in ‘Prometheus.’ He’s previously worked on and designed for such movies as ‘Men in Black’, ‘The Mummy’, ‘Hellboy’ and ‘War of the Worlds.’
Huante has been a big fan of the first ‘Alien’ and says that working on ‘Prometheus’ was “really sort of a coming around to a full circle” for him. The movie was a “very very impactful movie experience” and affected him more than ‘Star Wars’ has. That and seeing Giger’s work in the first film stayed with him for many years.
Although he’s not at liberty to talk about the movie he does say that working with Ridley Scott was “a great experience. I don’t know what they ended up using of mine in the end, but I was the only one designing the alien creatures at that time.”
Looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer to see what the creatures will look like. Wonder what it would take to make him talk as much as Dickie did to the tabloids?
