Perfect-Organism

Wierzbowski is a common Polish name.  It comes from the word "wierzba" which means "willow tree".  So Wierzbowski means "Of the Willow".

It is pronounced:

Viege-bovski

That's a soft "g" like the French name Gilles...

Sagit

Everything Perfect-Organism wrote is true. I'm polish and i confirm that Wierzbowski must have been of polish descent.
Actually when I think of it we have many names with "Willow: in it: Wierzbowski, Wierzbicki, Wierzba...

I remember watching Aliens as kid and during a scene showing all the marines cam feeds, my mother asked: "There are polish marines in this movie?" I said: " Well one of them is". She replied: "Oh that is nice", and watched the whole movie with me. She hates sci-fi but patriotism did its part ;)

So I'll write this in polish: Świeć Panie nad jego duszą.
It;s our "Rest in peace" and literally: "Lord shine over his soul"

Damn :(

God Speed Mr Steedman

Deeply saddened to hear this and regret that I was unable to meet the man in person. I much enjoyed his appearance on the podcast, his roll in the fan film, and have been looking forward to seeing him in Alien Encounters for some time now. Hopefully sooner than later.

I still remember in my younger days first discovering through whatever means available at the time (probably Alien Encyclopedia) that there were two other marines in the background of Aliens, Crowe and Wierzbowski. I still find it fun to play a version of Where's Waldo during the first half of the movie by trying to spot all their appearances. I think my favorite Ski moment has to be when Gorman walks out of the briefing, for a split second you can see Wierzbowski's hand flipping him off at the edge of the screen right when Crowe puts the blue hat on.

RIP mate, and cheers to a great legacy.

It was a real honour to have him on the show. Really wonderful guy. I really wish I hadn't been so nervous back then (I actually say at the start when we're all saying hi, "I'm not good, thanks!") but he told some great stories and was a pleasure to speak too. I keep meaning to transcribe the interview and upload it as a written one.

Motherf**ker.

A swear word is the only appropriate response. What a life you must have lived, Mr. Steedman. We love you.

Has there been any official statement or tributes from his fellow cast members or official Fox channels?

Rest in Peace Trevor.

Trev's family could still do with a little help if anyone can spare a few quid.

RIP Trevor Steedman. Loved your work in Children of Men too! That part where you got hit in the face is still one of the most convincing stunts I have ever seen.
