Kathrine Waterston looks like a complete badass in this latest photo from Ridley Scott‘s highly anticipated Alien: Covenant. She also looks like she’s under some pretty heavy stress, and she’s most likely fighting off some monstrous xenomorph alien.
The photo comes from USA Today, and when talking about her character, Daniels, she says, “You don’t really know what you’re made of until you’re tested.” She goes on to talk about one of the similarities between her character and Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley, saying:
“They are both able to somehow think clearly in really shocking, unimaginable scenarios. It’s fun to play someone who can thrive in that chaos.”
From all the photos that I’ve seen of Daniels, it seems like she shares more similarities than that, especially in looking like a badass. When talking about whether she preferred the Alien Chestbursters over Facehuggers, she laughingly said:
“I’m very squeamish. I’ve seen these movies many times, but I feel like I’ve barely seen any of the alien scenes because my eyes are usually covered.”
This movie looks like it’s going to be great. In case you need to be reminded of that, you can watch the trailer for it here. The movie hits theaters on May 17th!
