A natural born performer, Julia Jordan has always craved the spotlight. At only 15 months old, Julia booked her first SAG commercial after a casting director noticed her smiling and waving from her stroller and invited her to an audition. A natural in front of the camera, she booked the job on the spot and continued to find unexpected success in national commercials and print modeling.
As a determined and focused young actress, Julia landed her first feature film role at 8 years old as Mandy in “Dolphin Tale 2” where she grew as an actress and developed a new passion for marine life studies! During filming, Director Charles Martin Smith chuckled while watching her on the monitor and said, “she just sparkles and lights up on camera!” A year later, she was thrilled to book the title role of Isa in the short film “Isa and the Frog Prince” for which she was nominated “Best Actress Under 18” at the 2016 Utah Film Awards!
Julia’s love of music and dance was also apparent from an early age. She begged for dance classes at age 3 and has continued to pursue competitive dance and classical ballet instruction over the past 7 years. As the middle child, Julia, along with her 2 siblings, could often be found putting on musical performances in the living room featuring songs from her favorite Broadway shows and Disney films. Encouraged by her church choir director to start taking voice lessons, Julia was soon performing in Equity theatre productions. After her professional stage debut as Little Cosette in “Les Miserables”, she began auditioning and getting final call backs for principal roles on Broadway! Recently, Julia played Jane Banks in “Mary Poppins” and Baby June in “Gypsy”. Her favorite Broadway musical is “Matilda”!
When Julia is not rehearsing or performing, she can be found swimming in her mermaid tail with her sister, playing golf with her Dad or making funny videos with her friends! She loves animals, arts and crafts and going to the beach!
