robot & android makeups: Bicentennial Man

Galatea (Kiersten Warren) is the female robot who assists Rupert Burns: at the end of the movie she, like Andrew Martin, has adopted a human form and is Andrew and Portia’s nurse.

Okay, I know that this is strictly speaking a robot costume with an animatronic face and not a makeup. But both Galatea’s look and Kiersten’s performance were both brilliant enough to deserve an exception. How did she manage to dance in the outfit? How did they make the outfit so that she could dance?

Galatea, and Andrew Martin, were designed by Steve Johnson’s EdgeFX: the old-age makeup in the movie was designed by Greg Cannom.
