Julie White (born June 4, 1961) is an American actress of film, stage and television. She is a Tony Award winner but is best known for her role as Nadine Swoboda in Grace Under Fire and for her role as Judy Witwicky in the Transformers film series.
White was born in the Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego, California, the daughter of Sue Jane, a therapist, and Edwin White, a dentist. White and her family moved to Austin, Texas, to take up ranching when she was three years old. She started acting in local plays and became a semi-professional at 16. While she was playing the lead role in the musical, The Baker’s Wife, the show’s authors encouraged her to take her talent to New York City.
1. I THINK THAT THERE ARE LAUGHS IN ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE. I’M NOT A PLANNER; STUFF COMES ALONG AND YOU READ IT, AND IF IT SCARES YOU OR IF YOU THINK, ‘OH MY GOD, THIS IS SO GOOD. I HOPE I DON’T SCREW IT UP,’ THEN YOU SHOULD PROBABLY DO IT.
2. I’D JUST LOVE TO HAVE ANOTHER TV SERIES. I’LL BE THE ASSISTANT D.A. ON SOME CRIME SHOW.

4. FRANKLY, I WISH THEY WOULD DO ‘THE BACHELORETTE’ FOR OLD PEOPLE. AND I COULD BE THE BACHELORETTE.
5. I THINK THAT, ON TELEVISION AND IN FILM, I WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE MOTHER TO HOT BOYS UNTIL, INEVITABLY, I AM THEIR GRANDMOTHER.
