12. Blade Runner: Behind The Scenes


Sean Young:

"A lot of people like the scene where I say, 'kiss me, kiss me' to Harrison.
Personally, it's not one of my favorites. How would you like to have somebody
grab you and throw you around a room? I had bruises all over me. And
Harrison's beard was all grown out, and scratched my face. The whole scene
just reminded me of a woman getting beaten up. I didn't see how my character,
Rachel, could go up to his room after that."

"It was really a rough day. Harrison tends to play love scenes either angry
or funny. It isn't just acting, you know. Somebody really is throwing you
against a wall while you're supposed to be telling them you love them. I was a
wreck. I had three or four weeks off after that scene."

"The scene I liked the best was where Harrison tells me I'm a 'replicant' a
robot with emotions and I cry right on cue. Yes, they're real tears."
- The Washington Post, August 14, 1982

Harrison Ford:

He is also willing to admit that he is not fond of "Blade Runner," Ridley
Scott's futuristic cult favorite. "I played a detective who did no
detecting," he says. "There was nothing for me to do but stand around and give
some vain attempt to give some focus to Ridley's sets. I think some - a lot -
of people enjoy it, and that's their perogative."
- The Boston Globe, July 14, 1991
