Julie Barbeau is a member of UDA and ACTRA, an accomplished actor, voiceover artist, singer-songwriter, and sings in French as well as in English.
In 2004, Julie fulfills the promise she had made herself by enrolling in a theater class. During this course, Gilles Plouffe introduces her to John Strasberg’s organic creative process, thus marking her first steps as an actor.
As she starts obtaining roles she also starts accumulating awards. In 2012 she is bestowed an honorable mention for excellence in a lead role dramatic comedy by the Los Angeles Web Festival for her performance as « Karine » in To Be Or Not To Be Jack Russel, a webseries produced by Les Productions Rêves Intentionnels, a company of which she has been a founding member since 2006.
Since 2016 she has been studying under Danielle Fichaud and at Académie Syllable, furthering her voice acting talents (studio \ film). In September 2000, after having spents many years abroad (New York, London, Tokyo, Bangkok and Reykjavik), Julie returned to Montreal where she obtained an A .E.C. in sound engineering at the recording arts school Musitechnic. There she met her musical partner, Bruno Martin, with whom she co-founded the duo Bo’Bordel, of which she is the singer-songwriter.
In August 2016, after the sudden closure of L’Agence Lauren Ross, Julie decides to opt for self-representation within the group Les Acteurs Assosciés, for autonomous professional actors, a first of its kind in Québec.
Julie was raised by a french-canadian mother and a father of Jamaican descent in a rich and culturally-diverse environment.
