Currently living by the coast in West Dorset. Julie enjoys walking along the cliffs, running on the beach and swimming in the sea. Last year she took up longboard surfing again, having not tried it since her teens, and three years ago she went to Turkey for three weeks to learn to windsurf.
"I grew up on the island of Guernsey and spent a lot of my childhood on the beach. My partner (for over 20 years) and both my parents have died within the last few years and I find that being by the sea (or in it!) is the most healing place to be."
Julie enjoys African drumming (Djembe) and her drum school group, went down a storm at last year's Lyme Regis Carnival. She also loves dancing, particularly to deep funky house music. Earlier this year, she organised a big benefit gig for STOP THE WAR Coalition at Exeter Phoenix, involving 5 bands and 3 DJs. "It was a huge success and I just loved being involved with the music business. Perhaps one day I'll end up being a music promoter or running a music venue, who knows!"
Julie is a long standing member of an actor's Co-operative agency which means frequent trips to work in their office in London, and between acting jobs she enjoys doing role-play work in management training.
Julie's most recent theatre work was with the Royal Shakespeare Company, appearing in Chekov's The Seagull, 3 years ago.
Other theatre highlights include: playing Ophelia opposite Steven Berkoff's Hamlet at the Edinburgh Festival, James (Steed's butler!) in the West End stage version of The Avengers, Fay in Chorus of Disapproval at Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Dorina in Pirandello's When One is Somebody at Chichester Festival Theatre and in Jean-Louis Barrault's Rabelais at The Roundhouse.
Of Survivors, Julie has the following to say: "Survivors was my first major TV role. It was a very exciting time for me and I leaned a lot about the whole process of television. It was one of the earliest TV dramas done on OB (Outside Broadcast) rather than film and I remember going into the van and being fascinated by the multi-screens where the editing was happening 'on the spot'. I remember happy times waiting between shots sitting under a massive tree at Hampton Court in glorious sunshine and at other times the misty weather interfering with the cumbersome equipment and despairing cries of "Cut - we've lost Camera 2" and everything would grind to a halt. I never dreamt at the time that, over a quarter of a century later, Survivors would still be capturing people's imaginations and generating so much interest"
