An anonymous spy from the production
sends us information on the casting of two lead characters, one from
the novels, the other probably not.
Our spy reports that relative unknown
Brian Moore, an actor from
New Zealand, has been cast as "an alien," and that he
reports to the set every morning at 3, due to the demands of his
costuming and make-up.
This can only be Monat,
the alien in the novels who claimed to be a member of the invasion
force that ultimately resulted in the destruction of earth.
Monat is a genial, polite creature who is not above using violence
when called for.
The other character, played by Jeremy
Birchall, is only described as a "Polish
Jew." There is no character in the novels that directly
corresponds to this description.
