Biographical Details

Date of birth: February 22, 1950
Place of birth: Birmingham, England
Category: Actor
Nationality: British


Julie Walters is a paradoxical figure in that she is both star and celebrity yet she is also Everywoman. Enormously popular in the UK Julie Walters first started out in TV comedy before landing her first film role as Rita in Educating Rita. Although this brought to the attention of international movie makers Walters has largely eschewed Hollywood remaining on the British acting scene working across mainstream theatre and TV drama as well as playing roles in many films. Her performances are always fully committed but are often characters associated with warmth, directness and  wit.  Her  Britishness is  far away from the Home Counties model and the heritage industry style of film populated by actors such as Helena Bonham-Carter and increasingly Kiera Knightley. The characters Walters plays are associated very much with ordinary people who are working class or lower middle class. In this sense Walters can be said to represnt a far more realistic version of Britain than many of her fellow actors. This may well account for the estem with which she is commonly held.
