The best science fiction stories tackle life's most consequential and complex issues — what it means to be conscious, what it means to be moral, what it means to die — and in one of the greatest science fiction films of all time, Ridley Scott's classic "Blade Runner," Hauer improvised the following monologue before his character passed away. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
Despite such extreme moments, Roy ended the film not as a villain but as a sympathetic creature tormented by his own mortality. Contrary to rumour, Hauer did not improvise that monologue, though he did cut most of the written version while adding a few lines of his own, including that final one. Hauer was born in Breukelen to Arend Hauer and Teunke nee Mellema , actors who also ran a drama school in nearby Amsterdam. He abandoned education at 16 for the sea, scrubbing decks on freighters for a year. Stints as an electrician and a carpenter followed, and he briefly enrolled at acting school before being expelled for missing classes. He took up acting again in earnest, completed a three-year course and joined a touring theatre company. Playing a Robin Hood figure in the TV adventure series Floris , set in the middle ages, made him a star in his homeland; he reprised the part in the West German remake Floris von Rosemund

The key to this experience is victory over the fear of death. The first thing we will hear is the speaker saying:. That's what it is to be a slave. Ironically, the speaker of these words is a "replicant," an artificial human who was created by a scientist. The replicant's name is Roy.
