Who is Julie Christie?

Julie Frances Christie is a British actress. A pop icon of the "swinging London" era of the 1960s, she has won the Academy, Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Christie's breakthrough film role was in Billy Liar. In 1965, she won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Diana Scott in Darling. That same year, she starred as Lara Antipova in Doctor Zhivago, the eighth highest grossing film of all time after adjustment for inflation. In the following years, she starred in Fahrenheit 451, Far from the Madding Crowd, Petulia, The Go-Between, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Don't Look Now, Shampoo, and Heaven Can Wait.
