The accidental star of “Alien” is Sigourney Weaver, who plays the only (human) survivor of the Nostromo, Ellen Ripley. She stuck with the franchise, coming back for “Aliens” in 1986, “Alien 3” in 1992, and finally “Alien: Resurrection” in 1997, each one under the helm of a different director.

Weaver (born October 8, 1949) is much more than Ripley, though; she’s one of the best actors alive. She was one of the biggest movie stars of the ’80s and ’90s and continues to work regularly to this day. Her work oscillates between dramatic films,  like “The Ice Storm,” to comedies, like Ivan Reitman’s “Ghostbusters” and “Dave” or “Galaxy Quest,” to other science-fiction films — she reunited with “Aliens” director James Cameron on “Avatar” and “Avatar: The Way of Water.” She’s likewise worked as a voice actor for animated works and dabbled in television (see her hilarious voice acting turn as a yandere spaceship in “Futurama” episode “Love and Rockets”).

Perhaps because her breakout part was a tough-as-nails final girl, Weaver has always had a sterner presence than most leading actresses of her caliber. She can be sexy, sure, but is never vulnerable because of it.

Despite her long-running career, Weaver has only been nominated for three Oscars, and somehow never won, in a fairly narrow window of time. Namely, Best Actress in 1987 for “Aliens” and then, in 1989, Best Actress for “Gorillas in the Mist” and Best Supporting Actress in “Working Girl.” Yes, she’s just that good.
