Drug-Addled Actor Nick Stahl Is Missing
The Terminator 3 actor's estranged wife suspects drugs are involved in his disappearance.
Nick Stahl, the actor best known for playing young John Connor in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, has been reported as missing, and his estranged wife, Rose Murphy, suspects drugs may have played a role in his disappearance. The 32-year-old actor was last seen on May 9th, according to the police report filed by Murphy, and sources say he had been frequenting Skid Row in Los Angeles lately. LAPD officials said officers in the area have been given copies of his photo and are keeping watch for him. This is not the first occasion that Stahl's drug habits have been an issue; Murphy filed court papers in February, asking that his visitations with their 2-year-old daughter be limited, and asked for proof that he had not used drugs within 24 hours of seeing her. Stahl's career spans over 20 years and included roles in movies like The Thin Red Line and Sin City. He took over the role of John Connor in the Terminator franchise from Edward Furlong, who also struggled with a drug addiction after starring in 1991's Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Stahl's rep declined to comment on the situation.
