It never occurred to me to browse through the credits of Ridley Scott’s 1979 film Alien, to find out who was underneath the monstrous black mask.
The man was Bolanji Badejo, a 7ft tall Nigerian design student picked up from a bar in West London to fill the title role.  He worked on the film for 4 months. Spending every day wrapped in a suffocating custom fitted rubber suit, working to exude a presence of pure evil.
Despite his incredible contribution to the film’s success Badejo never received any publicity for his involvement. Ultimately, it would be his only film role.

Here is some test footage of Badejo in an alien suit. Even as simple test footage it is still creepy. 

I’ve reblogged this photo of Badejo before, but I’m doing so again for the amazingly creepy test footage. Sometimes, no amount of technology can make any scarier the simple fact of a man in a mask.

more information on him here
it’s just amazing to imagine a man playing the Alien now that most filmmakers use CGI (it seems from reading about him though that unfortunately a lot of the footage he shot was cut and he only appears in moments where the whole alien is in view not parts of it)

very cool
