Hoping they find him and it’s a happy ending.

I’ve always liked Sands even if he gives off a creepy vibe in most of his roles.

I know it gets slammed, but I really liked Boxing Helena.

Hope he's okay!

Been a fan of his for what feels like forever.

Yeah that's almost a week. Doesn't sound good. Always enjoyed his work since A Room With a View, Warlock and Ken Russell's Gothic. Also Arachnophobia and Leaving Las Vegas. I really hope he's ok.

Re: Actor Julian Sands reported missing while on hike

Two guys missing in the mountains for five days with bad weather doesn't sound like it will have a positive outcome.

Then again, I thought Jeremy Renner would lose a leg...

Hoping for the best for the 24 alumni (season 5).

CA had some crazy weather the past couple weeks. Surprised he would go hiking.

I just watched an episode of Person Of Interest with him in it a couple of days ago. I hope they find him well.

Not good there’s no news yet. Just watched him in the great Arachnophobia recently. Always a cool somewhat sinister presence.

Finished up rewatching Stargate SG-1 last summer. He was the high priest of the Ori last two seasons.
Take it there's no cell phone coverage where he's at. Can't be pinged? Suppose it would be worse if there is cell coverage and he's not calling.

It's been almost 1 week now. The chances of him being okay are not looking good and the fact that he went hiking by himself.

I do hope he is found and is OK. I've liked him as an actor since the Warlock movies, then in Stargate: Sg1, Rose Red, and everything in between.

If he had an iPhone 14 that has satellite emergency SOS. I read how useful it was for a couple driven off a steep hill landing roof down in a remote area. A potential lifesaver for anyone hiking on their own.

Re: Actor Julian Sands reported missing while on hike

Terrible news, I've always been a big fan of the Warlock movies. Let's hope he is found in safe condition.

His last film then comes out on Blu-ray next week, The Ghosts of Monday. A haphazard, low-budget supernatural thriller but enjoyable enough if you consume a lot of horror.

Great to see so much love for the Warlock movies. I still remember when my dad took me to see the first one.

Re: Actor Julian Sands reported missing while on hike

I worry that if he’s dead they won’t end up finding a body until the spring when the snow melts. And by that point it’ll be a miracle of animals haven’t taken care of it.

I don’t mean to sound morbid but it sounds like there’s still snowfall in the forecast and the search has been pulled back to searching by air only. Seems like a pretty tall order for rescue crews when there’s new snow on the ground.

The first report I read seemed to imply that he was hiking with another person, but there's also another missing hiker in a separate incident. The first report I read either thought they were together, or didn't make it clear that they weren't.

Re: Actor Julian Sands reported missing while on hike

I've not heard any update on this. When would he be declared dead? Will they list him in the Oscars' memoriam segment?

The last update was on 1/26 or thereabouts, and he has not been found. It's been a recovery mission for a while now.

Re: Actor Julian Sands reported missing while on hike

Yeah by now it’s just a mission to find his body or whatever remains are left. Sad, but it’s the only realistic outcome at this point.

I would think they’d want to declare him dead first. Or maybe end the “In Memoriam” section with a picture of Sands and a giant question mark next to the photo. Then “…to be continued” as the segment fades to black.
