Sean Young movies and TV shows
Over the course of her career, Young has amassed an impressive filmography of movies and TV shows.
She made her feature film debut in 1980 in the movie Jane Austen in Manhattan and later broke out in the 1982 science fiction classic Blade Runner. In the 1980s and 1990s, she appeared in movies such as Dune in 1984, No Way Out and Wall Street in 1987, Cousins in 1989 and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective in 1994.

One noted role she famously wanted to play but never did was Catwoman. In the 1989 film Batman directed by Tim Burton, Young was originally cast as Vicki Vale but was replaced by Kim Bassinger after breaking her arm after falling off a horse before production began.
Trying to land the Catwoman role for the sequel Batman Returns in 1992, she made a homemade Catwoman costume and attempted to contact Burton and actor Michael Keaton, even going so far as to appear on the set of the film and on The Joan Rivers Show as Catwoman to try to convince Burton to hire her for the role, which ultimately went to Michelle Pfeiffer.
Alleged burglary incident
On August 9, 2018, Young and an unknown male companion were allegedly caught on surveillance cameras stealing two Apple laptops and video production software worth approximately $12,000 (£9,402) from the School of Old store in New York City.
Young reportedly worked at the store but had been fired several months before the alleged burglary took place.
The New York Police Department is currently seeking her for questioning and no arrests have been made so far.
Young has reportedly had other run-ins with the law before over the years. In February 2012, she was arrested outside of an Academy Awards party after allegedly slapping a security guard. The charges against her were later dropped.
