Julie Bowen was raised in Baltimore, Maryland, where her first acting gig was in her backyard alongside her two sisters. Julie went on to major in Italian Renaissance studies at Brown University, and during her senior year she snagged the lead role in the indie film Five Spot Jewel.

After graduation Julie took a role in the soap opera Loving, which led to her primetime debut in an episode of Class of ‘96.

Julie’s film credits include Multiplicity, Crazy on the Outside, An American Werewolf in Paris, Happy Gilmore, and Horrible Bosses.
