The C-Word: Sean Young

Podcast cover
Read more

It's a special episode of The C-Word! With each episode, Lena Dunham and Alissa Bennett take you on an historical deep-dive into the life of a woman society dismissed by calling her mad, sad, or just plain bad. Join them for a rich, hilarious, and heartbreaking look into exactly what it means when we call a woman “crazy”.


In this episode: Sean Young got her big break when she was cast in Blade Runner at 22-years old. But after rumblings that she was “difficult to work with,” and troubling romantic rumors, her reputation plummeted. Lena and Alissa trace Sean’s career through her plea to play Catwoman to some ill-fated talk show appearances to Hollywood outcast.


If you like what you hear, we invite you to join us for all episodes of The C-Word on the Luminary podcast app. Luminary Premium is the only place you’ll find all episodes of The C-Word, as well as other premium, ad-free shows you can’t hear anywhere else. Go to LuminaryPodcasts.com to learn more.
