What happened to Sean Young, the femme fatale from Ridley Scott's classic Blade Runner. It was announced earlier this month that there would be a Blade Runner sequel starting Harrison Ford in the title role, but what about the lead female role Rachael? How has Hollywood forgotten such a prominent character. Sean Young quotes “Of course if I were a man I’d have been treated better. Duh.”
A very interesting read from the Guardian. Follow the link below to read the full article.
It’s strange, how the Blade Runner legend now leaves out both Young and her co-star Daryl Hannah, presenting it as the collective triumph of Ford, Rutger Hauer with his “tears in rain” speech, and Ridley Scott orchestrating it all. Then again, that kind of thing often blights actors. Like a lot of what befell Young, it could only have happened to a woman.
