Black History Month: Bolaji Badejo (1952-1992) – the Nigerian Actor Who Played the Monster in the (1979) Alien Movie!

In all the years I have re-watched the Alien movie (in various formats) no one has ever mentioned that an African man was essentially playing the lead-role in any of associated commentaries! How could this fact have been over-looked in a film that has gone down as iconic? He made all the sinister and threatening movements that made the ‘Alien’ believable and extremely disturbing and frightening to the watching audience and made the film what it was!
