Columbus Day in U.S.

Did you know…

… that today, besides being Columbus Day in the U.S., is the birthday of Sigourney Weaver (1949)? Sigourney Weaver is an American actress best known for her role as Ellen Ripley in the Alien film series.

Trivia fans: Born Susan Alexandra Weaver, she began using the name “Sigourney Weaver” in 1963 after a minor character (Sigourney Howard) in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby.

Happy birthday, Sigourney!
