Julie Benz Biography, Age
Julie Marie Benz the actress was born on May 1, 1972, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She grew up in Murrysville at the side of her brother Jeffrey Benz and a sister Jennifer Benz with her parents: Joanne Marie and George Benz, Jr.
When she grew up, her first wish was to become a figure skater, just like her mother who did it professionally. She began to play the sport as a little girl, but after suffering a break as a young teenager that forced her to quit, she left the sport for good in 1989.
For her education, Julie Benz attended Franklin Regional High School, where she transferred to New York University. Shortly after graduating, she decided to go where most people who wanted to pursue an acting career would go: Los Angeles.
As a young girl, her teacher had once told her that she would never succeed as an actress because she was not good and had no good voice. Instead of discouraging her, this became the main source of her inspiration, which led her to work as hard as possible just to prove her teacher wrong.
She received her first role as an actress in 1990 when she starred in Two Evil Eyes. Her next film was in 1996 when she was cast in Black Sheep and Darkdrive, both in 1996. By 2010 she had already starred in a number of films including Rambo (2008), Saw V (2008), and Punisher: War Zone, also in 2008. Her most recent films are Supremacy (2014), Circle (2015), Life on the Line (2015), and Havenhurst (2016).
More than the movies in which Julie Benz made a better name for herself were the television shows in which she started in 1991 with Hi Honey, I’m Home! followed by Married… with Children in 1994, followed by small roles in many other movies until she got Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 1997 and Angel in 2000.
Dexter, for whom she would be very famous, joined her in 2006. Benz would later appear in Law & Order (2007) and Desperate Housewives (2010).
With over 85 productions, including films, television shows, and games, Julie has also won several awards, including the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress on TV and the Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Dexter.
Julie Benz is a very beautiful woman who has been in a number of relationships in the past. Although not confirmed, there are some sources that claim that she was in a relationship with Sylvester Stallone, who interestingly enough has dated many women in the past.
While her relationship with the star actor was only a rumor, she has also been dating another actor, John Kassir. The two would marry in 1998, only for the relationship to end in divorce in 2007, a little before their 10th anniversary.
The next man the actress would marry to date is Rich Orosco. Orosco, who has been a television producer since 2008, will become engaged to Benz in 2011 and will become her second husband in 2012 after he has entered into the bond of marriage.
The Dexter actress will not have any children from her current marriage, nor did she have any in her previous marriage.
One of the things that have contributed to Julie Benz’s beauty is definitely her body. Although she is not the tallest woman in many assemblies, her average height and good weight make her stand out in many other things.
Benz is a blonde woman with blue eyes, is 1.63 m tall, and has a bodyweight of 56 kg. In her general body measurements, she has a waist size of 24 inches and a bra size of 32 inches, while her hip size is 35 inches.
With a multitude of films, dubbing actors, and other engagements, one can only expect that the highly talented, award-winning actress will have a good fortune. Yes, she has, unless you think her estimated net worth of $6 million is not good enough.
