Elizabeth Inglis


As elegant and aristocratic as her British nationality requires, Elizabeth Inglis was one of the most promising actresses of her motherland, in the beginning of the 40s. She was born in Colchester, Essex, to Margaret Inglis (Hunt) and Alan George Hawkins. After making her debut in Borrowed Clothes (1934) and having small parts in some of Alfred Hitchcock's early movies, she reached the point of co-starring next to Bette Davis in William Wyler's The Letter (1940). She vanished from public view, though, as soon as she got married to TV producer Sylvester L. Weaver Jr., shortly after World War II. Despite the fact she abandoned cinema to raise her children, Trajan and Sigourney, she proved to be a good mentor for her later super-star daughter, Sigourney Weaver. She made a momentary appearance in Aliens (1986), where she portrayed Ripley's (played by Sigourney) old perished daughter in one of the deleted scenes of James Cameron's epic.
