It's worth noting that Julian has been married twice. His first wife was British journalist Sarah Harvey Sands, who graduated from the University of London and worked with a number of British media outlets including the London Evening Standard and the BBC. She wed Julian in 1984 but parted ways shortly after in 1987. The pair was, however, dating for more than a decade. Three years after divorcing Sarah, Julian took the holy vows with Evgenia and the couple has been together ever since.

As mentioned, the acclaimed actor was reported missing on Friday and was last seen hiking Mt Baldy, near Los Angeles. Search and rescue teams were deployed instantly, 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 has been difficult and the use of air resources was limited over the weekend," the department said in a statement. Julian's family reported him missing after he didn't return home from his hike in the San Gabriel Mountains, which was hit 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.
