Julie is a New York-based/U.K.-trained actress who recently graduated from The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts in Liverpool, England with her BA Honours Acting degree.
After being offered acceptance to the program at her audition (and convincing her parents to let her go to university across the pond...thanks Mom & Dad!), Julie packed her bags and left behind New Jersey to live and study in Liverpool, which is, in her opinion, the coolest city ever.
During her time at LIPA, Julie had the opportunity to work and train with many outstanding industry professionals, including Jonathan Glew (assoc. dir. Betrayal, Broadway) and James Baker (dir. Yank!, West End), who directed her as Marnie in Second Person Narrative and as June in A Matter of Life and Death, respectively. She participated in Q&As with actors such as Bill Nighy, Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Woody Harrelson and Elaine Paige. Julie was the proud recipient of the Sir John Gielgud Bursary, a scholarship awarded to one nominee from each participating UK drama school. She ended her time in England on a high note; receiving a pin and a congratulatory kiss at graduation from Sir Paul McCartney, co-founder of LIPA.
Julie will be appearing next at the UK Federation of Drama School's New York Showcase on September 16th at Theatre Row Studio Theatre. For more information, click the following link:
