Nina Axelrod

Did you know that Nina Axelrod was considered for the part of Rachel in Blade Runner? Here's a still from her screen test. Her father wrote the screenplay for The Manchurian Candidate.

ou learn these things from the 5-DVD "Ultimate" collection of Blade Runner.

You also learn you're a total dork who actually watches all 5 DVD's in the "ultimate" Blade Runner collection. Well, maybe "you" don't learn that. But I learned that... about... um... me.

Big Nina Axelrod fan, me. She was in "Cross Country," which I saw about 5 times when it was on HBO, 20 yrs ago. As I recall (spoiler alert!) she turns out to be the killer, in that one. Of course, she was in "Motel Hell." What else?

I think it would have been interesting to have her and the dude who played "Holden" as the leads in Blade Runner.
