'Blade Runner' actress Sean Young caught on surveillance cameras stealing $12,000 of laptops from NYC store
The said footage revealing her behind the robbery shows Young stealing two Apple laptops, and also a video production software from a business in Astoria, Queens
Blade Runner actress Sean Young is wanted by the NYPD for questioning in connection with a Queens burglary, law enforcement sources said. Surveillance video footage from Thursday shows the actress swiping gadgets from a store in New York City. Young had reportedly been working at the store but was fired several months ago.
The popular eighties star has been off the celebrity radar for quite a while and has battled alcoholism in the past too. The said footage shows the 58-year-old stealing two Apple laptops, and also a video production software from a shop called School of Old located in Astoria, Queens.
In the video, Young, who has 121 film credits over a career spanning more than three decades, is seen accompanied by another man breaking in with her, revealed sources. The laptops they swiped were valued at $12,000.
While reps for Young have not provided any comment on the news, Young's behavior has become increasingly erratic over the years. Previously, she slapped a security guard at an Oscars after-party back in the year 2012. Young was then arrested and taken away by police and booked for battery.
The incident was not her first issue at an Oscars after-party. She tried to get into a Vanity Fair party by sneaking in behind Jennifer Aniston in 2006. But she was escorted out by four guards when spotted by security, a Daily Mail report said.
Known for her performances in 'No Way Out' and 'Wall Street,' Young had most recently appeared in TNT's 'The Alienist'. But her most popular work so far continues to be the role of the replicant Rachel in the 1982 sci-fi thriller 'Blade Runner' that also starred Harrison Ford. Her star status faded after her tumultuous, messy romance with actor James Woods — which ended with Woods claiming she had sent him and his girlfriend pictures of corpses and other mutilated bodies.
What followed was Woods getting Young arrested for stalking, and also slamming a $2-million harassment lawsuit against her. It was settled out of court, but Young repeatedly insisted it was a "misunderstanding." Young was also known for recording herself in catsuits and sending photos of the same to Tim Burton, so he would cast her as the Catwoman in the 1992 classic 'Batman Returns'.
She reprised the act years later on the 'Late Show with David Letterman', where she once again put on her catsuit and was filmed begging people on the street for work, screaming, "I'm not crazy." During her ongoing battle with alcoholism, she had also starred in 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew'.
