  33. 33. Q20 ■ As later stated by one of the costumers, the baby Xs who interacted with humans were not Xs butYs who were made up in black-face and given peaked fur hats to more closely resemble Xs.This is because the use of actual baby Xs would have put the filmmakers in serious danger from the adult Xs. It was also noted that, for a number of reasons, the crew kept its distance from the Xs when not filming them. One day, when preparing to shoot a scene, the actors and crew were hanging around and paying little attention to a stuntman who casually climbed into his X suit.The suit was extremely realistic, even featuring internal forearm extenders. In the upcoming scene the X was to charge, which required the stunt man to run on all fours using the ungainly arm extenders. Being dressed and ready, the stuntman then performed a practice charge. No one had paid any notice to the fellow until that exact moment.When he did the practice charge, he scared the cast and crew, causing a number of them to flee, as they thought that an actual X was going after them. It took a few minutes for everyone to calm down and recognize the humor of the situation. ■ Anecdote from which SigourneyWeaver film based on which irl person? (10 each)
