Old soul in the guise of a Golden Retriever
With range and wit, Julia navigates effortlessly between genres and characters: while currently shooting international drama "My Zoe" for Julie Delpy, featuring an A-list cast including Richard Armitage, Daniel Brühl and Gemma Arterton, Julia can also be seen in Season 4 of award-winning comedy series and Amazon Original "Der Lack ist ab", proving her comedy chops alongside an all-star cast including Kai Wiesinger, Bettina Zimmermann, Veronica Ferres and Christiane Paul.
Born into a German family of Polish and Flemish heritage, Julia grew up in the Rhineland, speaking three languages; English, German and French. Following her intense curiosity about other cultures, Julia studied acting in Paris, Oxford and London, where her sense of humour received a complex intercultural upgrade. From classical Shakespeare to Mark Ravenhill's physical tour de force "Pool (no water)", and to the "barely restrained force of nature" (The Cherwell), German left-wing terrorist Gudrun Ensslin in the one-woman play "No Memorial for Gudrun Ensslin", Julia has earned rave reviews for her theatrical work and is a "Best Actress" nominee at the 2011 Off West End Awards London.
Julia subsequently made her German television debut playing a Muslim convert in "Die Kinder meiner Tochter" (2013) opposite Jürgen Prochnow (Das Boot), René Ifrah (Homeland), and Kida Khodr Ramadan (4 Blocks).
Not content with acting along, Julia loves to develop her own work, and has been nominated for the Marlene Acting Award at the 2016 Snowdance Speedcasting ("Therapy Vlog"), and for the 2018 Funny Women Award ("So, how did you and dad meet?"), respectively.
