Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Attractive, brunette actress who receives more attention for her offscreen behavior than for her usually serviceable acting work. A former model and trained dancer, Young broke into movies with a small role in Jane Austen in Manhattan (1980). She was cute as an amiable MP officer in the Army comedy Stripes (1981) and enigmatically beautiful as a "replicant" in the 1982 sci-fi spectacular Blade Runner Young's leading roles in Young Doctors in Love (1982) and EB>. Secret of the Lost Legend (1985), and appearances in Dune (1984) and Wall Street (1987, in which her part was cut back to nearly nothing) didn't do much for her career, but No Way Out (1987), in which she played a number of torrid love scenes opposite Kevin Costner, won her a lot of attention (not all of it wanted). In 1989 James Woods, who costarred with Young in the previous year's turgid cocaine-addiction melodrama The Boost filed a harassment suit against her claiming she threatened him repeatedly after a terminated affair. Young traveled the talk-show circuit thereafter, on which various bizarre pronouncements made her a provocative guest.
Young showed herself capable of playing lighthearted, quirky comedy in Cousins (1989), then appeared in Firebirds (1990) and a pair of poorly received thrillers, A Kiss Before Dying and Love Crimes in 1991. That same year she appeared on Joan Rivers' TV talk show in a homemade "Catwoman" costume to complain about losing that role in Batman Returns to Michelle Pfeiffer (although sources contended Young wasn't even considered). She joined an able comedy cast in the disastrous Once Upon a Crime (1992), and played a blondined femme fatale later that year in Sketch Artist Recent credits include Blue Ice (1992), Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me, Fatal Instinct (both 1993), Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues and Airheads (all 1994).
