From the cover: Julie Walters has been described as the nations most popular actress and comedienne. She has been delighting us on screen and on stage for over twenty-five 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 fifties 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 didnt 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. Julies 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.
