No that was Hauer.  Sean Young doesn't die in Blade Runner.   ;D

Dutch actor Rutger Hauer, 'Blade Runner' star, dies at 75 - Los Angeles Times

Quote
Rutger Hauer, the Dutch actor who starred as the alien Roy Batty in 1982’s “Blade Runner,” has died. He was 75.
Hauer, whose other American TV and film credits included “Batman Begins,” “Sin City” and “True Blood,” “passed away peacefully at his Dutch home” on July 19, according to a Wednesday announcement on the actor’s AIDS charity website, the Rutger Hauer Starfish Assn. His death came after a very short illness, the announcement said.

A fine villain, in his day.

Coincidentally, Rutger has died in the same year as Roy Batty died in the film. I hope Daryl Hannah doesn't follow  ???

Also known outside the United States as "Salute of the Jugger".

Did you know that the highly improbable sport that was invented for the movie has been turned into an actual game that real people play?

The Canberra team has been kicking butt all over the world. I like to think that it's because a lot of them have attended my sword training sessions :D

The closer I get to 65 the younger it seems
