'Blade Runner' Star Sean Young Reportedly Wanted For Questioning In Robbery

This isn't the first time Sean Young, who also starred in movies like "Dune" and "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," has been in trouble. 

Sean Young, who starred as Rachel in the 1982 sci-fi classic “Blade Runner” is reportedly wanted by police in New York City for questioning about a robbery.

Young, 58, is accused of stealing Apple laptops and video production gear from a business in Astoria, Queens on Thursday, according to Page Six. The actress was reportedly fired from a job at the company months ago.

Surveillance footage reportedly shows Young and a man snatching the laptops and other gear on Thursday. The stolen items are valued at around $12,000.

The Associated Press and TMZ have also reported on the incident.

This is not the first time the iconic sci-fi star has been in trouble. In 2012, she was arrested for allegedly slapping a security guard at an Oscars after-party, according to Page Six.

After she reportedly had a brief romance with actor James Woods, Young allegedly harassed by sending him hate mail and pictures of corpses, according to a 1989 People story. He claimed he even found a mutilated doll on his doorstep. Woods filed a $2 million suit against her in 1987 citing “intentional infliction of emotional distress.” The case was settled out of court and Young denied the allegations in a 2007 interview with Entertainment Weekly.

She appeared on the reality TV show “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” in 2011 in which she discussed her battles with alcohol.

Despite her troubles, her IMDB shows that she has been acting regularly. She is best known, in addition to “Blade Runner,” for her roles in “Dune” and “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.”

She told The Guardian in 2015 that she doesn’t expect to ever be as big of an actress as she was in the 1980s.

“It’s like putting a beautiful racehorse out to pasture before her time and then after 20 years expecting her to be the same horse.”
