Sean Young has had a tumultuous relationship with show business. Her rise as a young starlet brought her fast fame after appearing in Blade Runner in 1982, but a decade into her career, her own erratic behavior led to the loss of roles and a reputation for being difficult to work with. When Young agreed to be a patient on VH1’s Celebrity Rehab in 2011, she opened up about her alcoholism and how her addiction soothed her feelings of humiliation and depression after being ostracized from Hollywood. In a truly emotional moment from her appearance on the show, she discusses with candor how she’s live in “a mountain of pain,” feeling “completely humiliated by the condition of my reputation in the business.”
Since her appearance on Rehab, Young has worked steadily in TV an film. Rumor has it that Young will actually appear in Blade Runner 2049, having secretly filmed scenes reprising her role as Rachael, a replicant in a dystopian version of Los Angeles. Blade Runner 2049 is out in theaters this week.
