It was as Julie Marie Benz that the actress was born on May 1, 1972, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She was raised in Murrysville alongside her brother, Jeffrey Benz, and a sister Jennifer Benz by their parents: Joanne Marie and George Benz, Jr.
While growing up, the first thing she had wanted to do was to become a figure skater just like her mother who did it professionally. She began the sport as a little girl, but after suffering a fracture when she was a young teenager, forcing her off, and by 1989, she would leave the sport for good.
For her education, Julie Benz attended the Franklin Regional High School from where she moved to New York University. Shortly after graduating, she decided to head where most people wanting a career in acting would head; Los Angeles.
As a young girl, her teacher had once told her that she was never going to succeed as an actress as she was not good and did not have a good voice. Instead of deterring her, that became the main source of her inspiration, making her want to work as hard as she could just to prove her teacher wrong.
Her first role as an actress came when she acted in Two Evil Eyes in 1990. Her next movie was in 1996 when she was given roles in Black Sheep and Darkdrive both in 1996. By 2010, she had already acted in a good number of movies including Rambo (2008), Saw V (2008), and Punisher: War Zone also in 2008. Her most recent movies are Supremacy (2014), Circle (2015), Life on the Line (2015), and Havenhurst (2016).

A very beautiful woman, Julie Benz has been in a number of relationships in the past. While not confirmed, there are some sources that claim she was in a relationship with Sylvester Stallone who interestingly has dated many women in the past.
While her relationship with the star actor was just a rumor, she has also dated another actor, John Kassir. The two would go on to marry in 1998 only for the relationship to end in divorce in 2007, a little shy of their 10th anniversary.
The next man that the actress would go on to date is Rich Orosco. After dating from 2008, Orosco who is a Television producer will go on to have Benz engaged in 2011 and become her second husband after tying the knot in 2012.
The Dexter actress is yet to have any children from her current marriage and did not have any as well in the previous one.
