Sigourney Weaver Career
Susan Alexandra “Sigourney Weaver” Weaver is primarily an American actress. She is known to be one of the pioneering female science fiction movie actresses of the late 20th century. She has achieved her acting career with some notable roles in movies such as “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “Chutes and Ladders”, and “Laguna Beach”.
These films helped to establish Weaver as a name within the genre of science fiction and gave her the experience and understanding of alien races that would later be incorporated into her feature filmography. Her association with sci-fi and movies, in particular, would continue to feature notable characters including Annalee Banks, Ripley, and Jodelle Ferreira.
Following a period of professional success in Hollywood, she would decide to take on a more character-oriented role in “Catherine” (a part which she originally auditioned for). This would help to define her career at the time. Following the performance, Weaver would also star alongside Steve McQueen in the award-winning “hateful Eyes”.
Following these roles, Weaver decided to concentrate on smaller roles, before moving to the world of theater. “Manicured Heart” would feature Weaver in a different type of role, before being offered a leading role in the feature film adaptation of “Romeo And Juliet” in which she would again play the role of Cleopatra.
Following the success of her Broadway appearances, “Manicured Heart” was not only a box office hit but an Academy Award winner for Best Picture, making Weaver one of the most successful actors of the late 20th century.
Following the success of “Manicured Heart” and several similar successes, Weaver decided to focus on more sci-fi and fantasy films instead. Although this trend would leave her without any big blockbuster hits, it did mark the beginning of her prolific career. In addition to “Aliens”, “Contact”, and “Men in Black”, Weaver also enjoyed success in “Rebecca” and “E.T.”
After making several less popular films, Weaver decided that her time had come for a major role in a Hollywood blockbuster. “Clear Shot” would be her last major role, before her untimely death from lung cancer in 1980.
Despite her death, the “Clear Shot” role has been used as the basis for some of her later films including “Sense Of Doubt” and “Point Break.”
Following the death of her first child, Weaver concentrated on raising her daughter, with whom she appeared in “Cable Guy.” Following the success of “Cable Guy,” Weaver appeared in her first psychological thriller “The Rage Of Angels.”

With the success of these films and the release of “Rebecca” in theaters, Weaver decided to take a break from her acting career, but not before delivering three more films that would win awards at the Oscars. Following the success of “Rebecca,” Weaver decided to concentrate on writing. Her most successful novel would be “After Life,” which was turned into a film of the same name.
Following her decision to focus on writing, Weaver began work on a television series entitled “Million Dollar Baby.” Although the show failed to gain a ratings boost, it did find an audience and enjoyed great popularity. “Million Dollar Baby” was one of the few shows on network television that offered multi-dimensional characters, with the lead character, Sterling, taking on many interesting personalities along the way.
This led to the creation of “The Stepford Wives” and “The Firm,” which followed in the footsteps of “Million Dollar Baby.” This series further established Weaver’s talent and earned her the lead role in “The Perfect Score” with Julia Ormond.
