Sigourney Weaver IS Ripley in her role-winning Alien audition

While we all debate which up-and-coming young actress will end up filling Sigourney Weaver's shoes (or trying to, anyway) in the Alien prequel, let's not forget that Weaver was once a beginner herself. Of course, you can't really tell that from her audition for the role of Ripley, in which she already seemed like an old pro.

Check out the clip below, in which Weaver proved right from the start that she had what it took to be last survivor of the Nostromo. (Which we certainly hope isn't a spoiler after all these years!)
