Miss Julia Ann “Julie” Harris was already the toast of theater when she made her movie debut in 1952’s A Member of the Weddding, for which she received an Academy Award nomination. The same year she won her first of five Tonys (so far).
In 1963 she was in one of the undisputed classics of horror cinema, Robert Wise’s The Haunting, based on Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House. During shooting Harris kept away from fellow cast and crew in order to increase her character’s sense of vulnerability and isolation.
Born in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, she has homes in Cape Cod and Michigan.
