(Friday Feb. 25, 2005)
The chat with Julie will begin in just a few minutes so get your
Don't worry, we're still chatting with Julie today. She's running
slightly late and is racing to the phone as I type!
Hi everybody! I'm glad that you all are joining us for a chat. This
is my first time doing this but please be gentle!
Penny Hey Julie, it is great to see you on Days.. Was it
strange for you to take over the role from Lisa Rinna?
No, it wasn't strange at all. I think if Lisa wasn't available to
do the role, I think it was fated to be mine.
Julie! i love watching you on DAYS! i'm wondering if anyone has
ever told you that you look like Rosalind Russell? you should audition
for The Women remake!
Rosalind Russell? I've never heard that one but I'm flattered!
what age did u start your acting.
The first time I remember is when I was in sixth grade and I was
in the play, Heidi. I played Fraulein Rottenmeyer, the bad lady.
At the curtain call, my family stood up and clapped so loud and
I loved the feeling so much that I knew it was what I wanted to
julie, thanks for chatting with us today. i was wondering how you
are adjusting to being on days? who has been the biggest help to
you in the cast?
Definitely, Peter and Kristian. My storyline is with the two of
them so obviously I spend most of my working time with them. They've
helped fill me in on the show history and family and things like
that. Basically, I found out that I'm related to everyone in Salem!
you a DOOL fan before landing the role of Billie, and if so, for
Honestly, when I was growing up the only show that I watched was
AMC. I hear the Boos coming, lol. I do remember being in a restaurant
about 15 years ago and looking at the TV and seeing Kristian ice-skating.
I remember thinking how beautiful she was.
Julie! I think you're doing a great job as Billie. I don't miss
Lisa at all! Do you think there BIllie will fall back into drugs
because of her sadness over not having Bo or Georgia?
Anything's possible. I would hope that Billie would be stronger
than that but finding out that my daughter is alive is a life changing
experience. I'm not sure how much disappointment it would take for
Billie to go over the edge again.
you want to always act the bad girl along with kate. to me you and
kate makes sami look like a saint.
I think it's just as fun to play the bad girl, it's more fun. I
think the fans like to have the bad girl on screen. If everyone
was nice and wonderful it would be really boring.
watched you on PC and Eve and Ian were one of my favorite couples.
Have you kept in contact with Thorsten Kaye after you left PC?
Unfortunately I haven't. He's in NY doing AMC and we lost touch
after my run on PC ended. But I loved acting opposite him.
you think finding your character's daughter will make her stronger
or more dependent?
Stronger. I think it would give her something to live for and it
would give her life meaning. I think it will strive to make her
a better person.
would you like to have more scenes with or work with more from the
I like working with Lauren (Kate). I think it might be fun for the
two of them to partner up and try and wreak havoc. I would also
love to Thaao Penghlis (Tony). I don't know what kind of story we
could have but I would love to work opposite him. For storyline
purposes I think it would be cool if Billie tried to infiltrate
the DiMeras and take Tony down.
