Sean Young’s Blade Runner Polaroids
As a huge Harrison Ford fan I feel odd singling out another guy when he’s on the page but damn, Rutger Hauer was hot (when not in character murdering people).
Actress Sean Young has recently posted some Polaroids that she took on the set of Blade Runner. Visit her site here to see all of them. I just included my favorites. I love that she is also a fan of this type of shot. I used to annoy the hell out of my friends trying to get all of them to take this style of picture with me.

She also has a YouTube channel here that includes some footage she shot during the making of films such as Dune. This was my favorite clip on there.
Unfortunately she doesn’t have any behind the scenes stuff up from my favorite movie of hers, Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde.
Q: Has an actor ever surprised you?
A: Well, I was waiting to meet Harrison Ford for the first time and show him the storyboard drawings for Blade Runner. And I wanted his character to be like Philip Marlowe with a kind of a trilby, a fedora with a slightly wider brim. Very sharp. He’d been shooting Raiders of the Lost Ark, so he arrived at this posh piano bar in London wearing a leather jacket, khaki shirt, and baggy khaki trousers and a hat—fully dressed from the set. I said, “There’s our hat!” He said, “No. This is why I came like this—this is how I am as Indiana Jones. Let’s think again.” We did.
