Julia Roberts was born on 28 October 1967 in Smyrna, Georgia. She was born into
actingas her parentsran a dramaworkshop in Atlanta and from an early age she
took part in performances written by her father. Despite this, when she was very
young she wanted to be avet. In 1971, when she was four, her parents split up. The
eldest child, Eric (15) stayed with his father, while Julia and her elder sister Lisa went
back to Smyrna. Her father ended up as a vacuum cleaner salesman and her
mother as a secretary but neither of them was interested in fame and fortune.

Julia was not a particularly brilliant schoolgirl. She had not been seriously affected by her parents separation because she had been so young. However, when she was just eight her father died and this was a more seriousblow. She got over the trauma by concentrating on her favouritesub jects at school. At high school she discovered Walt Whitman and, through his work, her love of literature.

Julia was able to use her experience of parental death later in life during the filming of
Flatliners (1990). In that movie Julia was a young medical student who, together with
friends, plays dangerous games with near-death experiences. Her visions while
"flatlining" force the character to confront the death of her father in childhood.
