Sean Young films on Long Island
Fred Carpenter, the tireless filmmaker from Shirley, has a knack for convincing stars to appear in his movies: Armand Assante and Eric Roberts have both been pulled into Carpenter's orbit. The latest to fall under his charm offensive: Sean Young.
Movie fans will remember Young as an actress of classic, siren-style beauty who appeared opposite Harrison Ford in “Blade Runner,” and with Kevin Costner in “No Way Out.” As the 1980s turned into the 1990s, however, the Hollywood rumor-mill branded Young as difficult and erratic. She attempted to win a role in 1992's “Batman Returns” by dressing up as Catwoman and surprising director Tim Burton on the set, a much-publicized stunt that seemed to damage her career.
Young recently appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” making a public pitch for more film-work and poking fun at her reputation with a video that showed her screaming on a busy sidewalk in a Catwoman suit.
In Carpenter's new film, “Send Me No Flowers,” Young, 52, plays a woman trying to run the family business for her father (Tony Lo Bianco, of “The Honeymoon Killers"), an aging mobster. The photo above was taken during shooting in Old Brookville.
