Publisher's Summary

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards, Biography of the Year, 2009.

Julie Walters has been described as the nation's most popular actress and comedienne. She has been delighting us on screen and on stage for over 25 years and - thanks to her undoubted talent, infectious spirit and self-deprecating humour - we have taken her to our hearts.

Now she tells us her own story, in her own words. She was born in 50s Birmingham, daughter of an austere Irish Catholic mother. She was sent to school in a convent and from a young age always wanted to be an actress - but to appease her mother she first went into nursing. This didn't last for long, though, and she soon went to join The Everyman Theatre in Liverpool. West End success with Educating Rita followed, and she quickly replicated her success on film, playing opposite Michael Caine. Julie's collaborations with her close friend Victoria Wood have given us, among others, the unforgettable character 'Mrs Overall' in Acorn Antiques.

Julie has also starred in a range of films including Billy Elliot, Calendar Girls and Mamma Mia!, and she has recently charmed a new generation of fans playing "Mrs. Weasley" in the Harry Potter films.

This, her long-awaited autobiography, candidly reveals all the highs and lows in an extraordinary life. It is a remarkable piece of writing: funny, painfully felt, moving, warm, fiercely intelligent and - above all - wholly entertaining.

I wanted more...

I feel this could have been a much longer book. I am fascinated in people's lives and the courses that bring them to where they are in life. Julie is such a wonderful storyteller. Her accents are impeccable. This kept my interest and was saddened when the end came. I had the feeling of, "wait! I want more!" She is a treasure. I hope she continues to narrate books as she has such a skill for inflection, tone and creativeness.

Entertaining but What About Harry Potter?!

While I really enjoyed both the narrator and her story, as a big Harry Potter fan I was expecting to hear more about her experiences making the films for some odd 10 years and she barely mentioned it! She is hilarious though - laugh out loud funny and has led a pretty interesting life. Ended abruptly though - felt like something more needed to be said. Her accent was also difficult to understand at times. It was a good listen but left me wanting more....

Marvelous, loved every minute off it

I'm afraid I'm a bit off a late bloomer when it come to Julie Walters...I'm 53 and love British shows. I happened on to the dinnerladies and was so excited to find this show. As I do with all my British shows, I instantly get the names off the characters that are brilliant and see whether they are now. Sadness to find that Victoria Wood had passed at such a young age. Then Julie Walters, wonderful she's alive and she's still brilliant. OMG she was Mrs Weesley, got to watch all the Harry Potter's again... now her book on audible, with her reading it.... just a brilliant look into a massively wonderful actress. Thank you Julie Walters

A National Treasure!

My only complaint was it was too short! Julie's life is both fascinating and historical in equal measures. Her narration is wonderful; after all no one can do all her character voices like she can! Wonder read.
