It’s regrettable that he and Yaphet Kotto didn’t participate in the 2003 documentary: The Beast Within: The Making of ALIEN.
Per CdL, Ian politely declined (through his agent). Kotto wanted
very much to be involved, but the schedules just never worked out.
Sad to see another great go. In Kenneth Branagh's autobiography, he talked about how all the English stage actors would joke about the Ian Holm: 'Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Less Of' School of Acting.
Funny, but also true.
Clear skies, Ian.
