Sean Young had a Blade Runner 2 meeting: Here's what happened

We all know Blade Runner is due for a sequel, but will one of its stars be returning?

Sean Young, who played NEXUS android, Rachael, in the original Blade Runner says she met with Alcon Entertainment recently to discuss the film's sequel.  Are they thinking about bringing back any of the original cast.  Brace yourself:

Well, I did meet with Alcon, the company that owns it and is planning to do the remake with Ridley. I did meet with them, but I think at that point they just wanted to meet me and I don’t think they have any plans of using any of the original people, although I can’t say for sure. I do think, let me just say it right here, I do think it would be a disappointment to the audience not to have Rachael in it but you know what, folks in Hollywood make mistakes all the time.

Perhaps more interesting is Young's insistance of what model of NEXUS Rachael is.

Oh no, in the interpretation I’m the one that has no end date. I’m the one that rides off in the car with him at the end that has no end date. I’m Nexus-7, not Nexus-6.

That explains why Young thinks Rachael should make a return.  The question is, do you agree with her?  And should Deckard somehow return as well?
