Julie is of mixed ancestry; her father, Don, a German-American, was the head of the Physical Education Department at Los Angeles City College, while her mother, Helen, was half Swedish and half French, and a fashion designer. Since her early days, Julie studied dance, piano and classical ballet. She attended the John Marshal High School, from which she matriculated at 15 years of age – she has an I.Q. of 135. After high school she took a trip to Europe with her mother and brother, and upon return she enrolled at the UCLA, where she studied classical piano, philosophy and French.

Julie`s career began in the early 1950s, with roles in “Slaves Of Babylon” (1953) followed by the role as Dorcas in “Seven Brides For Seven Brothers” (1954).

In the 1960s, Julie continued successfully, as she was selected for quite a number of notable roles, including as Katrin Sveg in “The Marriage-Go-Round” (1961), as Bonnie Brasher in “For Love Or Money” (1963) with Kirk Douglas and Mitzi Gaynor, “My Living Doll” (1964-1965) as Rhoda Miller, and as Catwoman in “Batman” (1965-1966), with Adam West as Batman. She was then cast in the film “The Maltese Bippy” (1969), with Dan Rowan and Dick Martin as leads. In the 1970s, her popularity faded, and she managed to secure only a few film roles, such as in “A Very Missing Person” (1972), “Fools, Females And Fun” (1974), and “Terraces” (1977), while other credits include one-time appearances in several TV series, in “Columbo” (1973), “The Wide World Of Mystery” (1975), and “The Bionic Woman” (1976), among others.

Before the 1980s ended, Julie appeared in the film “Ghosts Can`t Do It” (1989) with Bo Derek and Don Murray in lead roles, which was a complete disaster, receiving four Razzie Awards.
