SpouseJay Karnes
FactGrowing up as an aspiring ballerina, she was sidetracked at 11 when she developed scoliosis. To treat it, she wore a neck-to-hip brace for 22 1/2 hours a day, setting aside 90 minutes for ballet practice. Her condition worsened, however, when it was discovered that her spine's center curve was 78 degrees off center, and starting to crush her right lung. Campbell underwent corrective surgery at the age of 15, recuperating in a full body cast for 11 months. Due to this condition, she is unable to participate in any activities that may put stress on her spine, such as skiing, horse-back riding, riding roller-coasters, and especially dancing.


Julia Campbell is an American actress. She is best known for her role as Julia Sullivan in the television series My So-Called Life.

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Campbell was raised in a Catholic family. She has two older sisters and one younger brother. She attended Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois, and graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1992.

Campbell began her acting career in the early 1990s, appearing in several television commercials. Her first major role came in 1994, when she was cast as Julia Sullivan in the ABC drama My So-Called Life. The show was short-lived, but Campbell’s performance earned her critical acclaim.

After My So-Called Life ended, Campbell appeared in a number of films, including The Brady Bunch Movie (1995), Camp Nowhere (1996), and Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (1997). She also had a recurring role on the television series Party of Five (1996-1997).

In recent years, Campbell has appeared in the films Save the Last Dance (2001), Legally Blonde (2001), and 13 Going on 30 (2004). She has also guest-starred on such television shows as Sex and the City (2000), Friends (2001), and CSI: Miami (2002).

Campbell is divorced from actor John Stamos, with whom she has one daughter. She currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
