Description - Julie Walters by Lucy Ellis
Julie Walters is one of Britain's finest actresses. From her Oscar-nominated film debut alongside Michael Caine in Educating Rita, to her role as London madam Cynthia Payne in Personal Services and her appearance in the internationally acclaimed Billy Elliot, Walters has worked with some of the greatest and most diverse actors and directors of our time. However, she was originally best known for her enduring comic collaborations, such as the hilarious 'Acorn Antiques' sketches or dinnerladies, with comedienne and close friend Victoria Wood. Following a poor Catholic upbringing in working-class Birmingham, Walters left a secure job as a nurse to pursue a career in the arts. Her life has included a romance with actor Pete Poslethwaite, a period of heavy drinking, marriage and the birth of her daughter Maisie. When Maisie was tragically diagnosed with leukaemia when she was a toddler, Walters put her acting career on hold, stepping out of the limelight to nurse her daughter through three years of painful chemotherapy. Now she is back on both the small and big screens and has been introduced to a new generation of fans as Mrs Weasley in the Harry Potter films.
