9th July is quickly approaching and we’re sure all of you Twilight fans can hardly wait for the newest instalment, Eclipse, to hit cinemas and actress Julia Jones is primed for her Twilight debut! Julia was born in 1981 in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. The Native American actress has both Chickasaw and Choctaw tribal heritage.

Eager to perform from a young age, she began performing at the Boston Ballet School at the age of four in productions of The Nutcracker. She began working in commercials and community theatre productions when she was 8. Julia attended Columbia University in New York City and graduated with a degree in English. While in college, she appeared in ad campaigns for Levi’s, Esprit, and Polo Ralph Lauren.

She also appeared in Black Cloud opposite Rick Schroder and Tim McGraw and the Quentin Tarantino-produced action movie Hell Ride. On television, Julia played Dr. Kaya Montoya on the final season of ER. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California.

Julia’s latest project was the western film Jonah Hex co-starring Josh Brolin, Megan Fox and John Malkovich, which opened last week in the US. In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, she will play Leah Clearwater, the only female member of the werewolf pack. Eclipse opens on 9 July in cinemas.
