Sigourney Weaver (născută Susan Alexandra Weaver; n. 8 octombrie 1949 în Manhattan, New York) este o actriță americană. Rolul pentru care este foarte bine cunoscută și a consacrat-o este Ellen Ripley în franciza Aliens: Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection. La fel de celebră au făcut-o și rolurile din filmele Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Gorillas in the Mist, The Ice Storm, Working Girl și Avatar. A fost nominalizată de trei ori pentru premiul Oscar pentru cea mai bună actriță, în filmele Aliens (1986), Gorillas in the Mist (1988), Working Girl (1988) și a câștigat și trei premii Globul de Aur.[1] Mai mult, a fost supranumită „Regina Science Fiction-ului” ("The Sci-Fi Queen"), pentru că a jucat în foarte multe filme cu acest subiect.[2][3][4][5]

Sigourney Weaver la Premiile Oscar 2010.

Susan Alexandra Weaver s-a născut pe 8 octombrie 1949, în Manhattan, New York, fiind fiica actriței Elizabeth Inglis și a lui Sylvester "Pat" Laflin Weaver (1908–2002), un pionier al televiziunii.[6][7][8][9] Unchiul său Doodles Weaver a fost și el actor. Abia în 1963 a început să folosească numele de Sigourney Weaver, după ce a interpretat un rol secundar, al lui Sigourney Howard, în The Great Gatsby..[10][11] A urmat cursurile Ethel Walker School și a fost foarte complexată în perioada adolescenței sale din cauza înălțimii. La numai 14 ani, actrița avea 1,79 înălțime. A urmat de asemenea cursurile Școlii Chapin. A absolvit cursurile de actorie la Universitatea Stanford în 1972, dar încă din timpul facultății a jucat în mai multe proiecte. În 1974 a câștigat o bursă la Yale University School of Drama [12] și a apărut în musicalul The Frogs regizat de Stephen Sondheim, dar și în alt spectacol alături de Meryl Streep, făcându-și astfel debutul.[13]
