Remember how shocked you were when you first saw the "chestburster" scene from the original movie, as a presumed case of food poisoning suddenly results in a live alien exploding out of John Hurt 's chest? Sigourney Weaver thought Hurt's life was actually coming to an end right in front of her. I mean, it's such brilliant acting.

But what happened to the cast once the Alien Queen had been unceremoniously ejected into deep space? Not only did she appear in the smash-hit Ghostbusters and its sequel, but in a rare duel win, she took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress for her work in Gorillas in the Midst and Working Girl. Aside from her acclaimed work, Weaver has been called the "sci-fi queen," making appearances in everything from Futurama to Wall-E. Weaver returned to work with James Cameron on Avatar and is rumored to be returning to Pandora in the upcoming sequels. Given that her character bites it in the first movie, that might seem an odd casting decision. The inclusion of 9-year-old Newt gave Aliens an emotional resonance that went deeper than the primal fear of the first movie. Her role is central to Ripley getting over the loss of her daughter and drives much of the plot. But what happened to Carrie Henn, the young actress who played Newt? Well, after filming finished on Aliens , Henn left acting behind, going on to work as a teacher in northern California. To this day, however, she still exchanges letters with Sigourney Weaver and was even the Hollywood star's guest at the premier of follow-up Alien 3.
