    Mmm, I'd also like to know why Ridley Scott is referred to as 'he/she'.

      R.Scott is the director of "Alien" and "Blade Runner"  Perhaps the writer native language is not English?

      Yep, maybe not; however, if the author has gone to the trouble of writing the piece, there should have been some effort to find out. I think it is being PC, terrified of being gender specific. SW is already refered to as an actress.
