This interview with Sigourney Weaver covers a lot in two-and-a-half minutes, from the origins of her name, to her experience of working on the film Alien (Ridley Scott, USA, 1979), to working with Mel Gibson on The Year of Living Dangerously (Peter Weir, Australia, 1982).

Mike Walsh's precision, and also his sense of humour, is evident here when he jokes about his likeness (or lack thereof) with actor Mel Gibson.
