Sean Young’s candid Polaroids from behind the scenes of Blade Runner
It would be tiresome for me to list the ways in which Blade Runner is both the best and most played out sci-fi film in recent memory. The Harrison Ford cult-classic has been a favourite of the movie aficionado since its release because of the ambiguous plot and apocalyptic nuances. Making it a film, which has been endlessly analysed and re-analysed, mostly by its director Ridley Scott.
But when we found these Polaroids from behind the scenes of the 1982 sci-fi behemoth we just had to share them. The images, though there aren’t many, show a softer side to the intelligence that is so often attached to the film.
Taken by star of the film Sean Young, the images show behind the scenes frivolity and fun including one particular image with Young’s co-star Harrison Ford.
The film may have shown that one needn’t drain the colour from the future to show it off as grey, these images show that all the thought and method of actors can leave the room once someone puts a Polaroid camera in your face.
