5. Katherine Waterston is Playing the Female Lead
Though it seems that Rapace will be returning, it’s Katherine Waterstone who is listed in the lead female role for Alien: Covenant. The image above is the first we’ve seen of Katherine Waterston in the lead role of Daniels. The image was part of a photo tweeted by the official Alien Facebook page with the title “Nowhere to Run.” The photo doesn’t give away much, but we can see Daniels is holding some kind of weapon. This, paired with the sinister title of the photo, reminds us of the dangers that Waterston’s character is bound to be facing.
