Debbie Harry regrets turning down a role in Sir Ridley Scott's 1982 blockbuster Blade Runner.

The Blondie star was the first choice to play rebellious humanoid Pris in the sci-fi classic, but she was forced to give up the part following pressure from her record label, who wanted her to focus on a solo music career.

Daryl Hannah eventually landed the part, and Harry admits she's lamented the decision ever since.

She tells Britain's Event magazine, "My record company didn't want me to take time out to do a movie. I shouldn't have listened to them."
