Q
So a bit of sleuthing online has found references to Liz May Brice playing a character named "Selene Farouska" in AVP.

Can anybody confirm where this name comes from? Is this just a name randomly given to one of Weyland's scientists in the sacrificial chamber?

Note that the wiki pages I have found about her appear to feature photos of two different actresses:

The second photo is her in Anderson's Resident Evil.

Interesting, I wasn't even aware of this page on our wiki and as far as I know that character in AVP was unnamed. The picture is definitely from RE, she played the medic in it.

Had a look and Langer in the book is indeed male, so I don't know who came up with 'Kate'.

It wasn't Paul was it? Because the only other source other than the novel on that page is one that is citing Paul Anderson/avp so maybe he said it in the commentary or BTS. I will ask Leigh about it as I think he cited those sources.

Checking the history of the page, the name was changed because it was assumed the character ullbeck says ""Hey! Hey, Kate! Come here!" and the citation was the movie itself.

Having just quickly checked that part of the movie, he only says Hey, hey, hey, come here.
Looks like the page is going to need to be discussed  :laugh:

This could be one of those weird games of telephone that lead to this anonymous mechanic from Prometheus being credited as "Ray" on certain wikis with no real sources. The nearest I can guess is that somebody on that wiki randomly gave him the name of one the mercenaries from the Alien: Engineers script.
