LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Actor Julian Sands, who has been reported as one of the multiple missing hikers on Mount Baldy, is married to author Evgenia Citkowitz and the couple have two children together.
The British actor, 65, has been reported missing after hiking in the mountains north of Los Angeles. Julian disappeared last Friday, January 13, in the Baldy Bowl area amid poor weather conditions in the San Gabriel Mountains. Authorities said ground rescue teams were forced to pause their search efforts over the weekend due to avalanche dangers, but the operation continued using drones and helicopters.

Who is Julian Sands’ wife, Evgenia Citkowitz?
It is worth noting that Julian was married twice. His first wife was British journalist Sarah Harvey Sands, who graduated from the University of London and worked for a number of British media outlets including the London Evening Standard and the BBC. She married Julian in 1984 but separated shortly thereafter in 1987. However, the couple dated for more than a decade. Three years after divorcing Sarah, Julian took holy vows with Evgenia and the couple have been together ever since.
As previously mentioned, the acclaimed actor was reported missing on Friday and was last seen hiking Mount Baldy near Los Angeles. Search and rescue teams were deployed immediately, but the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office revealed how “severe weather and alpine conditions” had delayed their efforts. “Due to the severe weather and alpine conditions, the search was difficult and use of air resources was limited over the weekend,” the department said in a statement. Julian’s family reported him missing after he failed to return home from his hike in the San Gabriel Mountains, which were battered by heavy snow and ice over the weekend. Authorities described the conditions as “extremely dangerous” and advised hikers to postpone any plans at this time.
Julian is the father of three children. He shares his son Henry Sands, born in 1985, with his ex-wife Sarah. The actor has two daughters with his current wife Evgenia, namely Natalya Morley Sands, born in August 1996, and Imogen, born in December 1999. Julian’s most popular roles include those in the films “A Room with a View”, “Arachnophobia”. , “The Killing Fields” and “Boxing Helena”. He has also played roles in a number of television series including 24, Smallville and Banshee. Most recently, Julian had recurring roles in the 2019 Netflix series What/If and the 2019 Hulu series A Nasty Piece of Work.
