Julie Walters has captured the hearts and attention of international audiences with her vibrant spirit and self-deprecating sense of humor, even joining a theater company in Liverpool and apprenticing as a stand-up comedian.
She attended convent school from a young age and later, the Holly Lodge Grammar School for Girls. She got a job at the age of 15 in insurance, before training as a student nurse at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, working on the casualty, coronary, and ophthalmic care wards. She then left nursing and pursued her love of English and drama at the Manchester Metropolitan University.
Walters made her London stage debut in the hugely popular comedy play Funny Peculiar in 1975, before developing a successful, but short lived, bawdy act on the cabaret circuit scene.
She took a 7-year hiatus from acting to look after her only daughter Maisie, when she contracted leukaemia at the age of two.
In 1983, Walters gained fame and international recognition when she starred in the brilliant Educating Rita which earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. The same role also won her a Golden Globe and BAFTA. In 2000, she received her second Academy Award nomination for her role in the box office smash Billy Elliot.
Walters is famous for her role as the wonderful Molly Weasley in the Harry Potter series. In 2001, she ranked first in the Orange Film Survey of Greatest British Films actresses.
She shaved her head for her role in the 2010 TV biographic film Mo. Playing the part of the late Mo Mowlam, the hugely popular and charismatic British Labour Party politician, who famously oversaw the signing of the historic Good Friday Peace Agreement in 1998. Never wanting to be seen in public without her hair, the costume department made Walters a wig.
