Michael Fassbender says he did not watch the Alien films to prepare for his role in Prometheus. Ian Holm played Ash in Alien. Lance Henricksen was Bishop in Aliens, Alien 3 and Winona Ryder was in Alien Resurrection. The actor says he didn’t feel the need to compare David to Ash and Bishop.
“I don’t know why, but sometimes you do, like when I was doing Jane Eyre, I watched as many of the Rochesters as I could get my hands on, but for this I made a decision not to watch the Alien movies,” Fassbender told Shock Till You Drop.
Michael Fassbender has revealed how David Bowie, Blade Runner and Lawrence of Arabia are some inspirations for creating his role as David the android.
