Then afterwards, when she approaches him on the bed and he starts oozing again and she recoils again, then he goes back to being human and keeps the secret. And it interested me tremendously, especially with David Bowie. People said, he’s an extraordinary artist but—and producers were especially interested only in this one thing—can he act? He is Mr Newton. He’s a tremendous performer, he’s sung on stage in front of 20,000 people. But it suddenly struck me, when he told me that it was a very important step for him and asked what I wanted for the role, that the best thing I could tell him was that I didn’t know who Mr Newton was either. So I told him, ‘You’ll help me by not knowing either. Just do it, say the part’. And it was strange–it was better than acting. He was Newton. He may have been slightly clumsy, and somebody else might have been more together, but training would have stopped it. It wouldn’t have had the authenticity of the alien, without anything except who he was … So the alien does not appear to be alien, but is in fact more alien than if he’d had a big head.
