Katherine Waterston talks Alien: Covenant and her character Daniels in new interview!

A brand new video interview with Alien: Covenant lead actress Katherine Waterston has just been published! Speaking with Social News XYZ, Waterson discusses what it was like to work with Ridley Scott, praising his vision and passion for creating believable and relatable characters. It sounds like more effort was put into developing the crew of the Covenant than the crew of the Prometheus.

Waterston also discusses her character Daniels and how she transforms throughout the film, finding herself being tested and pushed to her absolute limits. It's no surprise that Daniels will be like the "Ripley" of the Prometheus saga. No spoilers were discussed, so fans can enjoy the interview below:

This also marks the first official Alien: Covenant focused interview to debut online! I have a sneaking suspicion this video was prematurely uploaded however, considering the press who attended the Fox preview events for Covenant were given a strict content embargo which doesn't lift until the 24th. Regardless, we're pleased to see Alien: Covenant making the press rounds this early!

What do you think of Waterston's comments? Let us know in the comments!

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

You can clearly see how careful she chooses words not to spoil anything:)

Haha yeah, it must be so challenging to vet questions from the press and not spill any beans. Fassbender's one, minor slip of the tongue revealed the name of one of the Aliens and the web went nuts. The pressure must be heavy on the entire cast to keep a tight lid on things. Still a nice interview though, I've always enjoyed Waterson's acting, so I'm really looking forward to her performance in Alien: Covenant.

Special thanks should be given to James Cameron. If it were not for him telling Scott to do another ALIEN film, we would not be blessed with the series going in the way it was intended...a vision of horror that only Ridley Scott could bring to the screen.

Q:So what is the best part about playing Daniels?

A:Best part?Um, I don't know I mean I loved her journey...

Bla bla bla...

She's an survivor an actual born survivor,I don't want to give much away how it ends but, throughout the film she's,I loved that journey of self discovery.

I sense that something bad is going to happen to Daniels.

Chris, wasn't he talking about the chest burster when he said "Neomorph"? Are we 100% sure that that is the name of the Belugamorphs?

I like her, she gives the impression of being down to earth and not exaggerated with "perfect" commercial behaviour a lot of actors play out in front of the cameras.

She can't give any details away obviously but she seems extra careful about what to say, maybe Ridley threatened to unleash a Xeno in her house haha
