Remember the Irish mother? : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

Remember the Irish mother? That was Vasquez, from Aliens. Talk about a switch!

Dave: that is a shocker and a half!! Thanks for finding out--where did you learn that?? I am a major fan of "Aliens" - have my own copy - and I saw Titanic umpteen times and never realized that! You can't be serious! Talk about versatility!!! I am dying in amazement right now..I hope you're not playing a joke! (Guess you also noticed that Paxton was in Aliens as well?)

I believe Dave got his information from IMDb database. I'v watched the movie trailer several dozen times, and find it hard to believe. James Cameron does like to use the same actors,actresses in supporting roles, in many of his movies.

Actually, someone at work told me about it but I'm not sure where they found out. I'm almost 100% certain it's true. If anyone finds out otherwise please don't be mad at me, I just thought it was cool and wanted everyone to know. =)

Damn. Sorry about that, I had a feeling the editor would screw that one up. Anyway, that's the list as best as I could compile the thing.
