Bolaji Badejo, the man inside the suit of the original 1979 Alien. He stands at 7' 2", and was not originally an actor, but a design student who was discovered at a bar. Ridley Scott wanted someone unusually tall so as to make the suspension of disbelief more natural, and Badejo fit the bill. Of note, is that this role seems to have been Badejo's only real stint in the acting world, and there is little to no information about his life after Alien (save for rumor) to be found on the internet.
