Wow, remember her?

Even though she won great praise for her performance, she decided not to pursue acting and instead became a teacher.

Yet another thing that makes me feel old.

Thirty Years Later, Newt Remembers Filming Aliens | WIRED

Quote:
MORE THAN 30 YEARS ago, Carrie Henn was a 9-year-old living in London, where she’d just landed a big role in what would become one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time: James Cameron’s Aliens. In the 1986 smash, Henn starred as Newt, the soot-faced, wide-eyed orphan whose family has been wiped out by xenomorphs, and who develops a near-familial bond with Ripley, the creature-cratering heroine played by Sigourney Weaver. And if you thought that hanging around the set filled with multi-mouthed monsters (not to mention James Cameron) was scary for a young kid, you’re right—though, as it turns out, Hehn’s fears had nothing to do with her acid-drooling co-stars.

“I wasn’t nervous about being on set, because I knew everybody, and they were very friendly,” Henn said during a recent stop at the WIRED Cafe during Comic-Con International, where the film is celebrating its 30th anniversary. “The aliens were all my friends, wearing suits. I was actually most nervous about going to the cafeteria for lunch, because I had to go in-character as Newt, and I thought everybody would be staring at me. I didn’t have any concept that everybody else was going to be dressed up, too. My tutor actually gave me a big pair of sunglasses to wear when I went in. But it turned out not to be such a big thing.”

Feeling older than dirt is to have a better day than being dirt.

This article mislead me. I thought it was about Newt Gingrich having video evidence of Aliens. Real ones.
