Julie Walters – A Life in Pictures


National treasure Julie Walters will be the debut subject of the TV strand of BAFTA’s A Life In Pictures.

She’ll be discussing her career at BAFTA’s HQ in Piccadilly on December 3.

Earlier that weekend she’d also won an Olivier Award so I asked her what she was going to do on the Monday morning. “I’ve got a pile of washing to do” she told me. Still one of my favourite stories.
