Julie grew up all over North America in places like Naperville and Batavia IL, Montreal QUE and Longmont CO. She attended Dixie College where she intended to study pre-med but soon discovered her love of acting. After she graduated cum laude, she transferred to BYU where she earned another acting degree. The next day she moved to Los Angeles where she’s resided ever since.
Julie has been active in various forms of entertainment through the years. In addition to keeping up her acting skills in films, television, musicals and Shakespearean productions, she has sung in and conducted various choirs, and even performed bubble magic at private parties. She has sung with many of the top trailer music companies, and you’ve likely heard her voice in the previews’ background choirs enticing you to see the latest blockbuster (hers is the highest voice of all!).
Julie has also been producing shows for years. She has put on many stage plays – both straight plays and musicals – and has even written a few of her own. She also produces live events, including parties, conferences and a film festival for three years, and short films which have gathered a few awards at festivals.
Another of Julie’s skills is writing. She has written three stage plays, four music videos (and many of the songs they’re showcasing), eight short films, two television pilots, and eight feature films. Two of the feature films have been previously optioned by Hollywood producers. She recently adapted one, Earth’s Melody, into a novel that is available on Amazon. She has adapted another one, Whisper, into a stage musical that will be having a staged reading soon in Los Angeles.
As a director, Julie has helmed a few music videos and many short films, as well as numerous stage plays and fundraisers.
She has also dived into the Audiobook world. She has narrated and edited nineteen audiobooks, most being available in Itunes, Audible and Amazon.
“… At the end of the show, one of the women has a number (I won’t give it away) and she (Julie Hinton, who portrays Sister Amnesia) is an amazing talent. The evening was made by her talent and voice. So glad I was there to see the magic…”

“Ms. Hinton also proves to be a bona-fide vocal powerhouse as she demonstrates in her duet with Coon, “Impossible/It’s Possible” as Cinderella prepares to go to the ball. It’s an A-Plus endeavor … Toward the play’s climax, she is granted another opportunity to amaze us all over again —which she most certainly does, with “There Is Music In You”. … Placed late in the second act, Ms. Hinton’s powerful rendition is definitely worth waiting for!
