‘Doctor Who’ actor Tanya Fear reported missing 3 days ago, manager confirms

British actor Tanya Fear was reported missing on Thursday by her family after last being seen in Los Angeles, where she's been living for the past two months.

Fear’s manager, Alex Cole, confirmed the news via phone to TODAY on Sunday, three days after she first went missing. He told TODAY he last spoke to Fear eight days ago to discuss work, and she was fine.

“It was a shock to me,” Cole said of her disappearance.

Los Angeles police confirmed to TODAY that they completed a missing persons report on Sept. 9 for Fear but have no further information at this time.

Cole told TODAY that she's been living in Hollywood, near music venue Hollywood Bowl. In recent months, she's been trying out stand-up comedy, and it had been going well with her building a following.

Across social media, friends and fans have been raising awareness of Fear’s disappearance in order to get more information using the hashtag, “#FindTanyaFear.”

Related: Police and local law enforcement had been looking for the college student since last Thursday.

Author Bolu Babalola shared a missing poster for Fear on Twitter, writing, “My friend Tanya has gone missing in the LA/Hollywood Bowl area. She hasn't been seen since 9th September 2021.”

In a tweet shared hours later in the same thread, Babalola shared some additional details, adding, “On the day she went missing her hair was natural, in its afro state.”

A fan page for “Doctor Who” also retweeted the missing person poster for Fear, writing, “Missing Person alert: Tanya Fear who played Jade in #DoctorWho ‘Arachnids In The UK’ went missing on 9/9/2021.”

Fear is best known for her portrayal of Dr. Jade McIntyre in a 2018 episode of the television series “Doctor Who,” as well as Nina in the 2016 movie “A Moving Image” and Harlow in 2013’s “Kick-Ass 2.”

Sounds like another Naya Rivera type of thing.

She sends her love.

Several days ago when I saw this I had to look her up. She did one episode of Dr Who and that was only the unwatched woke version. Best wishes for the lady but despite the headlines she is no Sarah Jane.

She's definitely no Naya Rivera.

I’m fearful.

I'm concerned.

At least they didn’t refer to her as a Dr. Who star as these types of articles usually do. Like that chick who was in one episode of The Walking Dead as a zombie, and whatever it was she did, or had done to her (I don’t recall) the articles kept referring to her as a Walking Dead star.

I hope she is found alive and well.

She’s been found alive, apparently.

Was any brackish water involved? Did she perform on foreign Broadway?

The cops found her. She's fine. They said no foul play and the investigation is closed.

She probably spent a sex-filled weekend in some hot dude's bed and someone panicked when she didn't "pick up".

Well, what happened? Why did she get lost

R19, or hot gal

3 days does not seem like a long time to have family/management freak out. Maybe she wanted to go camping in the wilderness because showbiz is exhausting and being plugged in all the time is soul draining when your manager is calling texting you every half hour?

by Anonymousreply 22September 13, 2021 10:51 PM

Or maybe the entire thing was a ploy by her PR to get her name in the papers.
