Who are Julia Butters parents?
Darrin Butters (father)
Date of birth: 1969
Julia is obviously talented, and her gift as an entertainer can come from nothing. She inherited it from her father, a famous animator. Although his face is not known to the wide audience, Darren Butters (that’s Julia’s daddy’s name), he stands behind the well-known hits. He worked on the characters in the action “Eight Legged Freaks” in 2002. His recent projects include the hits “Zootopia”, “Moana”, “Wreck-It Ralph”, “Frozen” and others.
Despite a super successful career, Darrin doesn’t consider creating animation characters as his main achievement. First of all, he is the father of a vivid sweet girl Julia, a husband of the beautiful lady Lorelei and a passionate fisherman.
Lorelei Hill-Butters (mother)
Date of birth: 1970
Julia’s mother is not an alien in the movie world, too. She is a voice actress. Lorelei gave her soft pleasant voice to Queen Athena from the animation film “The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning”.
Mrs. Butters put lots of effort to help her talented daughter start acting at a very early age. She took little Julia for auditions and helped her to memorize the lines. Julia started to act at the kindergarten age, and she wasn’t able to read then. So, her mother sat by her side and read her the text, which the little actress had repeated until she knew it by heart.
Even the most devoted moviegoers know a lot about Julia Butters, the 11-year old actress (as of 2020). Nevertheless, her resume is really extensive for a person of that age. She was a shy baby, but it didn’t prevent her parents from taking the two-year girl to the model agency. She was immediately signed, and participated in many photoshoots, till she was cast for her first TV commercial. Having appeared on the TV set as a model, she gradually turned into an actress.
Julia’s first roles were tiny and often unnamed. She featured in one episode of the Disney series “Best Friends Whenever”, and then took part in Peter Billingsley’s action movie “Term Life”. Butters was catapulted to stardom in 2016 when she won the regular role of Anna-Kat Otto in “American Housewife”, the sitcom, which aired on ABC. Julia was very serious about her work and created the great screen character – a little cute girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Her sweet Anna-Kat gained lots of fans in different parts of our planet. One of them was the famous film director Quentin Tarantino. He used “American Housewife” as a background, while he was working on the new script. Butters’ character caught his attention, and he immediately invited the girl for an audition.
Thus, Julia got the greatest chance in her life. She was cast as Trudi Fraser in Quentin’s film “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood”. The child actress met the cult Hollywood stars at the set. She enjoyed working with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie. Besides, Quentin taught her a lot.
We are sure, that the talented child actress Julia Butters has a bright future in front of her and her fans are looking forward to her new screen works.
