Actor who plays an “Engineer” reveals a lot about his role
In an exclusive interview with ifonly.com, actor Daniel Twiss (stage name: Daniel James) gives an account of his role in Prometheus as well as his time working with Ridley Scott. Fortunately or not, we can infer parts of the film’s story from the revelations given by the actor– major parts, we’d say. The contents of the interview contain A LOT of spoilers, and so be warned. Here is an excerpt from the interview, which by the way has SPOILERS:
We have seen the virals, the teasers and the trailers. We have seen the alien life forms and the spacecraft from Scott’s Alien. What information can you give us on your character as the ‘Space Engineer’?
In the original Alien, the crew encounter the ‘Space Jockey’, now known as an ‘Engineer’ (the name for the alien race) however, as this is a semi-prequel, the ‘Engineers’ have a much bigger part to play. My character is that of a fairly young ‘Engineer’ who ritualistically sacrifices himself in the opening scene. This sacrifice is very different to any others as I have to drink an ancient mix which causes my body to literally disintegrate into the water around me. This then provides the first building blocks for new life to form on the alien planet. There are two other ‘Engineers’ who are in the rest of the film and have fairly large parts, but you will have to wait for release to find out more.
