His role as the title character (the Alien) in Alien (1979) was practically tailor-made to suit him. Badejo was a young African design student when he was picked up from a bar by Ridley Scott (director of 'Alien'). He was as big as Scott wanted the alien to be: at least two metres (6ft 7in) tall. In fact, he stood at well over 7ft. It was Scott's intention to create a monster that looked as if no human could be behind the mask. It was to be long and angular, with an impossible frame that only a few men would be able to fill. Badejo filled the role.
