1. Julian Sands Is An Actor
Julian is a successful actor who rose to fame during the 1980s and 1990s. Some of his most recognized work includes working on the films Arachnophobia, Ocean’s Thirteen, A Room with a View, and more. He co-starred alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood from Fight Club star Helena Bonham Carter to The Big Lebowski star John Goodman. The UK native has over 150 credits on his IMDb page and has even won an Special Jury Award at the 2012 International Film Festival for Peace, Inspiration and Equality for his work on The Maiden and the Princess.
2. He Is From The United Kingdom
The handsome award-winner was born in 1958 in the town of Otley, United Kingdom. He grew up with four brothers and attended a boys only boarding school for his early education. During a 2018 interview with Stony Brook University, Julian opened up about his earlier years and revealed some of his most meaningful memories. When they asked him how college shaped his “understanding of the world,” Julian credited the women in his life. “Coming to London to go to drama school when I was 18… I think the biggest factor was girls,” he said at the time. “The work we did at drama school… the scene work there, the training, the preparation – to encounter female energy was just a wonderful thing.” He also called that same energy something that “inspires” him and keeps him “interested” in the world.
3. Julian Felt Inspired By Theater Growing Up
Along with women being a major inspiration to Julian, he also credited his mentors from drama school. During the same interview with Stony Brook, Julian revealed one of his high school teachers “fired” up his imagination. That same instructor ended up writing one of Julian’s reference letters for drama school and he added that he was “very grateful” to him. In addition, Julian was inspired by other mentors in his profession like director Mike Figgis, who he worked with “several times.” Mike has notably directed a few major projects including Leaving Las Vegas, which also starred Nicolas Cage.
