Biography

Tall, blond and striking, with angular features and an unmistakable European air, British actor Julian Sands looked right at home in the tasteful historical dramas, gothic horror films, and international espionage roles he became known for. This veteran actor started out charming audiences in the 1985 film "A Room With A View," but darker roles in "Warlock" (1989), "Boxing Helena" (1993), and a string of films with director Mike Figgis always suggested a powerful talent with the potential to become a household name if the right role came along.

Bonus Trivia

.

"I'd rather do tiny parts in interesting films which give me the opportunity to do slightly different things than do leading roles which are just repeats. I quite like being a troubadour."---Sands quoted in a 1991 Movieline article.

.

"You go to Drama School, and come out of it scrambling for work. Then you get on the list. But the work really gets interesting when you become an adult, and you have a much greater range of opportunities."---Sands to Venice, July 2005.
