Julie Adams ACTOR


Julie Adams was born on October 17th, 1926 in Waterloo, Iowa with the birth name Betty May Adams.  She was raised in Arkansas and during elementary school she developed an interest in acting. 
After high school she decided to relocate to Hollywood and try to pursue a career in the industry.  While looking for roles, she took speech classes and also found work as a secretary to support herself. 
In 1949 she was cast in her first film role with Paramount Pictures, "Red, Hot and Blue".  Soon she was appearing in such films as, "The Dalton Gang" (1949) and a number of Lippert Westerns such as, "Hostile Country" (1950), "Marshal of Heldorado" (1950), "Colorado Ranger" (1950), "Fast on the Draw" (1950) and "Bend of the River" (1952) starring James Stewart, Arthur Kennedy and Rock Hudson.  All her early films were credited to her birth name Betty Adams.  It was not until she later began working for Universal Studios that they changed her name to Julia and then Julie Adams.   
During the 50's she was now a highly desired actress and Universal Studio's even had her legs insured for $125,000.  Other film roles she continued to add to her resume were on the classic science fiction thriller, "Creature from the Black Lagoon" (1954), "Tickle Me" (1965), "The Last Movie" (1971), "The Killer Inside Me" (1976) and "Goodbye, Franklin High" (1978). 
Along with her film work, she has appeared on numerous television shows throughout her time in the industry such as, "Maverick" starring James Garner and Jack Kelly, "Murder, She Wrote", "General Hospital", "Lux Video Theater", "Playhouse 90", "Cheyenne" starring Clint Walker, "The Rifleman" starring Chuck Connors, "Outlaws", "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", 'Surfside 6", "Dr. Kildare", "The Virginian", 'Burke's Law", "Perry Mason", "Ironside", "The Big Valley", "Quincy, M.E", "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "CSI". 
Julie has married twice, first in 1951 to Leonard Stern however by 1953 they were divorced.  She then wed Ray Danton in 1955 and they had two children before this marriage came to an end in 1978. 
Julie Adams has not re-married and remains working in the industry with some of her latest appearances being on the television series, "Cold Case", "Lost: Missing Pieces" and the film "Carnage" (2011) doing voice over work.
