Good interview, that flowed. Carrie Henn was a good interviewee and a lot more insightful and honest here than she'd been on the ALIENS DVD extras.
Good to see she finally admitted it was difficult being a child actress while simultaneously being a forces child. It was a question I had in the announcement thread back in February 2019.
Good she pulled through and made a life for herself rather than going off the rails like, say, Jake Lloyd (STAR WARS- Phantom Menace) who let playground taunts get the better of him.
I liked the question about what she thought of toy collectors around the world having a likeness of her Newt character at that point in time.
Carrie Henn- (awkward silence)........erm? It's very.....weird.
Didn't know she attended the ALIEN 3 premier, but I didn't get her impression whether she liked ALIEN 3 or Resurrection in an objective way.
She seemed more fond of her trip to ALIEN-WAR (I am assuming the Trocadero).
But by her own admission the series (in her mind) was "old hat" by 1992 by hers and her family's words. Again I'd read she felt that way in retrospective interviews, stoked by fan convention appearances and the then News of a Blomkamp ALIEN-5 announcement (2015).
I only wish a few more shout-outs and fan questions were asked including whether she'd seen THE PREDATOR and what she thought of the filmed, but subsequently cut, time travelling Newt post credit sequence!
