As the actors’ strike entered its third month, morale among SAG-AFTRA members remained high despite no additional talks with the AMPTP, not to mention the picket-line hurdles of hurricanes and heat waves.
Stars, including Richard Gere and Kevin Bacon continued to show their support at picket lines in New York and Los Angeles.
Here are a few of the famous faces who’ve been spotted marching shoulder to shoulder with their fellow guild members.
The “Primal Fear” and “Pretty Woman” star held a sign supporting both WGA East and SAG-AFTRA on a recent appearance in New York.
The “City on a Hall” actor hit the New York picket lines in a “SAG-AFTRA Strong” T-shirt.

“It’s a strike. Strike. You lose. We lose. Everybody loses. That’s tough s–t,” the Emmy-nominated “Better Call Saul” actor told TheWrap in July about actors who still wanted to promote their projects during the strike.

The “East New York” star and “The Good Wife” actress were all smiles with their fellow actors in New York.
The writer/actor, whose films include “Now You See Me,” walked the picket lines in New York.
Actress Frances Fisher, who’s also a SAG-AFTRA negotiator, told TheWrap in August that “nothing has changed in our resolve,” despite AMPTP’s lack of communication with the actors’ guild. “We’re all standing strong. You know, nothing has changed in our resolve, the negotiating committee, the national board, and all of our local boards are 100% behind this,” she said.
The “Hellboy” star, who might have made executives nervous with his “lots of ways to lose your home,” statement early on in the strike, delivered this message to the AMPTP via TheWrap in August: “Enough is enough. No matter how much you motherf–kers get, it’s never gonna be enough. So come back to the table. Throw your arms around us.”
The “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” star told TheWrap at a Los Angeles Amazon picket line in August: “We all share a hope that the strike will end, but it needs to end on the right terms, it needs to end for the right reasons, and that’s that everybody feels like they’re getting a fair deal. And then if the AMPTP are willing to do that and come to the table and have a serious discussion, then we hope that it goes well.”
Sara Gilbert and Lisa Edelstein
The star of “The Conners” and her friend, Lisa Edelstein of “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” turned out at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles in August.
Dermot Mulroney and Kieran Mulroney
The “Scream VI” star and his brother, Kieran, were at the Netflix picket lines in August.
The actor, who played Fat Neil on “Community,” commented to the TheWrap in August about the Warner Bros. Discovery executive who said the studio had saved $100 million since the strike started. “That’s a great savings for them today. Before, it was a pittance, it’s not worth making anything that [will earn less than] that… But that’s also a fraction of what we’re asking for,” he said.
