Blade Runner replicant checks into rehab

Sean Young proves herself 'more human than human'

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Actress Sean Young has voluntarily checked herself into rehab for alcohol abuse, following an unseemly outburst at Saturday night's Directors Guild Awards which saw her escorted from the premises.

Sean Young in Blade RunnerYoung, 48, who played replicant Rachael in Blade Runner (see pic), heckled director Julian Schnabel during his speech as a nominee for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, apparently insisting he hurry up. When Schnabel realised who was gobbing off, he suggested Young "have another cocktail". The actress was then removed from the building.

Her PR firm announced yesterday: "Sean Young voluntarily admitted herself yesterday to a rehabilitation center for treatment related to alcoholism. It is understood that Young has struggled against the disease for many years."

Young had a promising future following 1980s outings in Blade Runner, Stripes and No Way Out, but the wheels came off when she hit the bottle.

As Entertainment Weekly explains, she has of late attracted more attention for her "bizarre behavior" than her skills as a thespian, and notable incidents include "dressing up in a homemade cat suit in an attempt to land the role of Catwoman in Batman Returns and trying to crash Vanity Fair's Oscar party in 2006". ®
