RYE, N.Y. -- Happy Birthday to Rye’s Sean Young!

Young, an actress, best known for her performance in films from the 1980s, such as "Blade Runner," "Dune," "No Way Out" and "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," was born Nov. 20, 1959, in Louisville, Ken.
Young began her film career in 1980 in the film "Jane Austen in Manhattan," followed by a small role in the 1981 film "Stripes." She played the female lead opposite Harrison Ford in the futuristic classic "Blade Runner" (1982). She also had a small role in the film "Wall Street" as the wife of Michael Douglas' character. Her role originally was intended to be larger, but allegedly was significantly reduced due to clashes with Oliver Stone.
One of her most prominent roles was as the lover of a ruthless Washington politician in 1987's "No Way Out," playing opposite Kevin Costner. Other notable credits include "Fatal Instinct," and "Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend."
She was cast as Vicki Vale in Tim Burton's successful 1989 film "Batman," but during rehearsals, however, she broke her arm after falling off a horse and was replaced by Kim Basinger.
