Rogue Cinema Sleepover Girl – February 2013
All about Julie:
Location: Louisville, KY
Some of my favorite things: Kittens, bourbon, dinosaurs, peanut butter, coffee, wine, snow, Fall (the season), beer, Calvin and Hobbes comics, The Beatles
Most people would be surprised to know that I: played World of Warcraft religiously for almost three years.
Hobbies / special skills: Reading, writing, cat videos on YouTube, movies, 5Ks and obstacle courses which push me physically, cherry-balancing on my nose.
Number of years acting / modeling: 9
Favorite genre(s) and or film(s): The genre depends on my mood, but my top films are: Moulin Rouge, Jurassic Park, Forrest Gump, the LOTR trilogy (including the original cartoon of The Hobbit and Jackson’s latest version, and most Hitchcock films.
Acting / modeling gigs that I’m the most proud of: "Beverly" from The Shadowbox at Indiana University Southeast. I said and did things that took courage — I’d never do them in real life as "me" — and due to the play’s subject matter, it was therapeutic for myself and family. I knew that I was affecting the audience — my ultimate goal. Also, "Max" from Girl Number Three was my first film experience, and it also proved to be a physical/emotional challenge — for different reasons.
What I look for in a potential acting or modeling job: Something that challenges me and allows me to have an effect on the viewing audience — whether it be an emotional catharsis, realization in some sort of self-awareness… or simply to leave them entertained in some manner.
