Amanda Ripley-McClaren is the daughter of Ellen Ripley. She was ten years old when her mother goes away into space, following the loss of the Nostromo. L t


Searching for Ripley[]

15 years after her mother's disappearance, Amanda was contacted by Weyland-Yutani employee, Samuels, who gave her information regarding her mother's possible whereabouts. Amanda joined the search team to locate her mother which eventually lead her to Sevastopol, a decommissioned trading space station. Onboard, she encountered a Xenomorph Drone that proceeded to hunt her throughout the station.


She died at the age of sixty-six; fifty-six years after her mother goes off to space and two years before her return. Sometime before her death she married, taking the name McClaren, but had no children.


  • Amanda's picture was actually the picture of Sigourney Weaver's real-life mother, Elizabeth Inglis.
    • Amanda's design in Alien: Isolation is also based on Inglis during her youth.
  • According to the Aliens novelization, Amanda died of cancer.
  • In James Cameron's initial treatment for Aliens, Amanda (who had not yet been named) is still alive and living on Earth. By the time of the story, she is old, frail and crippled, and when Ripley speaks to her via videophone from Gateway Station, she makes it clear that she resents her mother for what happened, and coldly tells Ripley that she hates her.
