- Sigourney Weaver reunites again with James Cameron in Avatar: The Way of Water, this time as an orphaned 14-year-old Na’vi named Kiri. In an interview with the New York Times, Cameron and the 73-year-old actress joked about what an obvious choice she was.
- This being Avatar, Weaver’s performance involved a fair amount of motion-capture.
- “I remember when Jim finally made the decision, he said, “You can do this because you’re so immature. Nobody knows this but me, but I know that you’re just 14 at heart,” she told the Times.
- “And I think Jim is about 16, so he’s not off by much! But it was incredibly exciting to set loose your inner 14-year-old and to refine it, because being 14 is not all fun. I think we all remember how excruciating it can sometimes be and how unjust things seem in the moment. If you’re playing someone as sensitive as a 14-year-old girl who’s been uprooted, that’s a whole world of adventure you get to have as this character.”
