Katherine Waterston Talks Being Chased By “Enormous Aliens” in Alien: Covenant

Katherine Waterston talks being chased by “enormous Aliens” in a new interview with The One Show. With the imminent release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Katherine Waterston has been participating in the press rounds promoting the film.

She appeared alongside Fantastic Beasts co-star Eddie Redmayne on BBC One’s The One Show last night where she spoke very briefly about Alien: Covenant (at about the 27 minute mark).

When hosts Alex Jones and Angellica Bell brought up the topic of Alien: Covenant, Waterston told the hosts: “I’m was sort of running towards the trouble in Fantastic Beasts, whereas in Alien I’m running from it. Ridley is a little sadistic. He likes it to feel pretty scary on set. There were days when there were really enormous Aliens chasing me and I was in a cumbersome spacesuit.”

Katherine Waterston talks being chased by “enormous Aliens” in a new interview with The One Show.

The fear factor of Alien: Covenant is something that has been spoken about several times by the cast but the topic of practical Aliens hasn’t really been discussed. Callie Hernandez has previously hinted at the topic though. When asked if seeing Aliens in the flesh destroyed the illusion, she told SlashFilm: “No, it was just as terrifying as you would ever imagine it to be.” And we have, of course, been teased with the hand of a creature. Whether it’s the traditional Alien or Alien: Covenant’s new Neomorphs remains to be seen, however!

When pressed for details on her character (who we know is named Daniels), Katherine Waterston opted to play the secrecy card and not reveal anymore details. Thanks to BonesawT101 for the heads up!

    “Fantastic Beasts” isn’t the only major project Waterston is involved in these days. After joining the Harry Potter universe, she made the jump to another beloved franchise with a starring role in Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant,” which opens next summer.

    “It just worked out like this that I ended up in these two preexisting worlds back to back,” Waterston said. “I felt challenged and stretched in very different directions, and that’s the hope and the dream. It was a very stimulating, interesting, and exhausting year.”

    Guys, remember what Parker said: "He's like a man, he's big!" So, enormous compared to what, the "little green men" imagery traditionally associated with aliens, or the Greys from Close Encounters or X-COM (DOS version)? The enormous isn't enough to say that the aliens will be bigger than the original was unless we're given an example and something to compare it to. Just think of Richard Dreyfuss' character trying to take a picture of the shark with some other object in the frame to give the viewers an idea of its size.
    Well least to mention that they thought they were looking for a snake sized alien. So when she says huge I think that's exactly what she means. At least 10 feet tall. :P

    curious yep skeptic howl the'll handle tension and the dread of being chased by a monster, here's a snippet of this years Blair Witch an imperfect film but has its creepy moments, interesting fact this film stars Callie Hernandez who's also in Alien Covenant

    For sure.  The Alien measures at around 8 foot tall - considerably bigger than the average man, actually. 

    I'd say, that's kind of 'enormous' by any use of the word. lol.

    Hmm, so these Neo-Morphs are we can assume the size of the classic xeno morph, or she's possibly referring to an Ultramorph/ Xenomorph spawned from a space Jockey/Engineer or a xenomoph queen, the latter being unlikely.

    I thought the US ratings all essentially boiled down to our PG (Parental Guidance)? As long as an adult is with you, you can go see it?
    Certain theaters will have an attendant standing by the auditorium door looking for ID but i haven't seen that done in awhile.

    Can you imagine taking a child to see Linda Blair stab herself with the crucifix, i mean i can understand no babysitter for your child but to bring them to see that.

    I used to get my mom to drive me to Watertown in New York State to see Rated "R" movies as a kid.  She, and they, didn't give a f**k.  That said, I was really well behaved as a child, and most of the stuff I wanted to see was technically scifi and not horror (Robocop and Robocop 2, Aliens, Alien 3, that kinda thing).  Luckily I was really easy to shut up as a kid, hand me a stack of comic books and I'd just read them all on the way and not really speak or ask "are we there yet?"

    For my 8th birthday I got her to drive me to see the f**king Terminator.  Best Birthday ever.  Truth be told, she also wanted to see it and couldn't find anyone in her age bracket to see it with.

    I live a small town in northern michigan, the movie theater actually doesn't play rated R films, always been that way. The owner is getting pretty old but has refused to sell the theater to anyone unless they sign an agreement not to show R films lol.

    Such a gorgeous and sweet lady.  :-*

    "Enormous aliens" - she's tall in height so I wonder how big they are in the film.  But I doubt that means 'dinosaur sized'.  Probably just 8 feet tall like the standard aliens.

    She talks about it right at the end of the video.
