Julie Christie is the daughter of the late Frank Christie, a tea planter in India, and Rosemary Ramsden. She went to a convent school in India (from which she was expelled) and then trained as an actress at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London.
Julie's first big role was in a BBC television series, A for Andromeda
(1961). She moved on to leading parts in movies such as Billy Liar
(1963), Doctor Zhivago
(1965) and Far from the Madding Crowd
(1967). She won an Academy Award (Best Actress) for Darling
(1965). Julie continues to appear in movies - for instance, as Madame Rosmerta in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Nearly all of the credits for Julie Christie are on the big screen, so few will show up here at TV Rage.
She has never married. During the 1970s she lived in Los Angeles with Warren Beatty
and is now the partner of Duncan Campbell
, a British journalist based in California.
