Personal Quote:

[1992: on the possibility of performing in a fourth Alien movie] I am sure there will eventually be an Alien 4, it just won't have me in it. See more »

Trivia:

In many of her roles, her character has had to deal with artificially intelligent spaceships. In the Alien movies, she battles them. In Galaxy Quest (1999), much to her character's chagrin, she repeated whatever the spaceship said. In addition, on an episode of Futurama (1999), and in the film WALL·E (2008), she had the chance to voice a spaceship. See more »
