American actress Julie Benz was born on May 1, 1972 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. When she was 15, she already had an interest in acting. When her acting coach discouraged her that she can’t be a successful actress in the future because of her horrible voice, she didn’t take the compliment in a negative perception, but took it as a challenge. She took acting studies in New York University and right after graduating, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career. Immediately after staying two weeks in Los Angeles, she gained her first role in an episode of the American sitcom Married… with Children. She was doing great with her first performance that’s why more acting opportunities came to her that eventually made her become a successful actress. Currently she is playing as the main cast of the science fiction TV series Defiance.
When the actress was asked about her secret as of why she continues to have an ageless beauty and a killer body despite her growing age, she says she just maintains an active lifestyle. “I’ve been an athlete my whole life. I grew up an ice skater, so in many ways for me working out is my therapy. It’s my lifestyle. I have a trainer four days a week and we lift very heavy, heavy weights,” she says.
And what about her diet? “I try to eat foods that have nutritional value,” she confides. “I have my moments, but 90 percent of the time I don’t eat junk food. There’s no fad diet. I’ve tried them all and none of them last.”
