Clemen's (Charles Dance) character to me sums up the entire Alienverse. Broken, deeply flawed but still kicking on, best he can (or could).

I love lots of characters. But I agree Clemens is a very special character, probably because in Alien 3 nobody really stands out except him. He wasn't some hero or ones who complains a lot. He doesn't talk bullshit while has his own way of thought. Also I like his manner and soft spoken tone.

Definitely David. Parker and Brett are fun as hell too! At least before the killing begins... Also I'll give a shoutout to Larry Purvis! The nerd in Resurrection who has the embryo in him the whole damn time. He is ridiculous, but I enjoy him!

i don't know what alot of people mean when they say that alien 3 didn't have memorable characters. I actually remember more names of charectors in alien3 than in aliens. the one known for its character. dillon, clemens, golic, and morse are all pretty memorable to me.

Timmy the ultramorph even Ripley is memorable in Alien 3 compared to Aliens. 

And half of Bishop and a dead Newt are better in Alien 3 than in Aliens.

Such an underrated movie.

Same as Alien Covenant.

Great topic! Upvoted!

My very favorite character is definitely Bishop.

Actually, I just bought a new car and named it Bishop.

Bishop is just a good person who puts up with a lot of disrespect yet faithfully looks out for the well-being of others, even when he himself has suffered considerably.

I think he is the character I both relate to and aspire to emulate.

I recently got the book "Aliens: Bug Hunt" (I bought it because I saw it had a Bishop story in it) and I when I read the story "Broken" about Bishop it actually made me cry and just made me like and relate to him even more.

Actually, I find his death in Alien 3 just really unbearable. I've said it before but, if anyone can write a fan-fiction with a better outcome for him, I'd be really really happy to read it.

I'd write one, but sadly I can't write stories with happy endings.

Hicks.   By far.  Best protagonist is any action film in my opinion.

David, I relate to him so. Fassbender nails the part and you couldn't imagine another actor in the role. He's like a dark Bishop (another fantastic character). I also liked Clemens a lot as well and was sad when he was killed like that. Other favorites are Hudson, Parker, Golic, and Call.

I think lamber, though not my fave chacter, deserves a wee mention. I thought Cartwright did an amazing job of projecting fear onto the screen. couldn't imagine her as ripley so I think they made the right choice in casting her as lambert instead of ripley


Aug-13-2017 10:16 AM

Fassbender is a perfect cast for David. Agree he really nails the character and I just couldn't think of any other actor who can portray as good as him. He is genius.

Alive Shaw (not corpse one), janek, Bishop and the pilot lady in the drop ship female pilot (with the says "In the pipe 5 by 5")

although  i enjoyed a few charectors from resurrection, They sort of just made the movie lightharted to me. thats just my opinion.

Timmy the ultramorph I see your point. Aliens had quippy characters too but they balanced it out nicer with the darkness. Nonetheless, I still enjoyed it. Each film added something different to the franchise.

Lawrence of Arabia hahah awesome!!

Timmy the ultramorph its classic Joss Whedon humour....though heavily bastardised  


Aug-14-2017 9:29 AM

My favorite is probably Clemens from Alien 3. He is sort of quiet but still goes his own way look at his conversation with Andrews "I am the doctor you are the jailer". 


After Clemens my favorite is Vasquez. I like her attitude for example when she pulls out some shells after being forced to give them to someone in Aliens (Apone?). She has some "don't take any shit" kind of attitude. Who can forget “Let’s rock!!!”?


The only movie where I have had Ripley as number one is in Alien, I don't know why.

Ripley, Shaw, Bishop and Walter
