prometheus movie alien giant

Ian Whyte (born 1971) is a Welsh actor, stuntman and former professional basketball player. He currently resides in North Shields, Tyne and Wear. Born in Bangor, North Wales, he is best known for portraying Predators in both Alien vs. Predator and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.   When will those aliens and predators stop fighting and make peace? This has gone on long enough. It's just sad!

He stands at the height of 7'1" (2.16 m). Whyte portrayed one of the "Engineer" aliens seen in Ridley Scott's 2012 really shitty and confusing science fiction film, "Prometheus."  He played a giant space alien (big surprise) who has spent centuries in some kind of life pod.  This, of course, opens up perfectly at the right moment so he could pop out and start killing people.  I thought they were are makers? Why would they want to kill us? If I woke up from centuries of hypersleep I would be at least a big groggy and not at all homicidal. This makes no sense but that's the way that movie was.  Eventually his character is attacked by some giant starfish facehugger thing that had been taken out of another character's guts.  This leads to the pea-brained final scene in which a parasitic alien bursts out of him. Uh huh.

He has portrayed various characters requiring an actor of above-average stature in the HBO series "Game of Thrones," including white walkers in season 1 and season 2 and a giant in the opening episode of season 3. For these roles he was unrecognizable under make-up and CGI. However, in season 2, he also had a speaking role as Ser Gregor Clegane.

His other roles include "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," "Outcast," "Clash of the Titans and "The Beachcomber."  In fact, in the Harry Potter movie he actually played a giant woman!  In "Titans" he played a giant guy who looked like he was made out of wood. That had to be the most uncomfortable makeup of all.  The more rubber applianced you wear the harder it is for your skin to breathe.  And it's so easy to overheat or literally suffocate.  During some films breaks have to be taken to blow cold air into the masks of the actors.  Mike Myers's costume for "The Cat In The Hat" even had its' own cooling system.

It's a monster mash with every kookie creature, uncomfortable costume and suffocating makeup job Ian Whyte has had to endure!
