Biography


Looking upon the numerous prestigious accolades she has acquired throughout her steady, long career in film industry, it really does not require any further consideration to properly address Julianne Moore as one of the world's greatest actresses people always could admire of. Born Julie Anne Smith to Ann and Peter Moore Smith on December 3, 1960 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, young Julianne, along with the rest of the family members, had to undergo a nomadic life for quite a long time due to his father's occupation as a judge in the U.S Army Judge Advocate General's Corps. Going around various military bases located among others in New Jersey, Texas, Alaska, also Panama, they eventually landed their feet on Germany where the red-haired girl began to flourish her profound interest in acting with the encouragement of her English teacher at Frankfurt American High School.

By the time she encountered her high school graduation in 1979, Julianne had settled her mind to establish herself as a fine thespian, a decision that led to her parents' objection since they preferred to see her undertaking more secure profession rather than becoming an actress. However, they finally gave in when the comely teen came to a compromise that she was willing to continue her education to the college level as long as they permitted her to choose one of the performing arts' branches as her major. Later obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Drama from the School of The Performing Arts at Boston University by the year 1983, she optimistically embarked on the journey to reach her dream, heading for the glamorous city of New York to land an acting job.
