"Daryl Hannah, the acrtess who plays Pris, is a trained gymnast and did many
of the backflips herself. While we used a stuntman for the difficult
backflips, she landed on Deckard's shoulders, for example. The fight between
Harrison and her is quite vicious and we all cringed when she put her two
fingers in Harrison's nostrils to haul him up. Harrison came up with that
idea and, even though all of us found it very painful to watch, he insisted
on doing it."
A cautious Deckard enters Sebastian' apartment as Pris--under the veil--sits
perfectly still, appearing to be just another mannequin.
Deckard gets too close in his examination and is sent flying across the room
with one forceful kick from Pris.
(above 3 images) While Deckard lies stunned on the floor, the agile replicant
steps back and, with a flying summersault leap, lands squarely on Deckard's
shoulders and applies a brutal scissor grip with her legs.
(above 2 images) Pris finally releases Deckard and, fight for breath, he
manages to squeeze off several shots stopping her in her tracks. Pris has so
much energy and life in her that her body continues to violently kick and
thrash as she dies.
