Hanks was a synthetic employee of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation and a supervisor in charge of the mine at the colony of Bowen's Landing. She was working at the colony when a group of miners encountered a lone Xenomorph in the mine where they worked.

Upon learning of the Xenomorph's existence, she began working against the miners to ensure the creature's survival so that it could be recovered by the company for study. It is unknown if she survived the Xenomorph incident.


  • Hanks actress Tara Pratt originally auditioned for one of the miners, but after seeing her audition tape, directors Kailey and Sam Spear offered her the larger role of Hanks instead.[2]



  1. Hanks' actress' (Tara Pratt) height is 5ft 7 (170 cm), so that is also how tall Hanks would have been.
