Julia Voth was born in 1985 in Saskatchewan, Canada. She clearly had entertainment aspirations at an early age, since she was known for hamming it up in most of her family pictures. By the time she was 14, Julia Voth was already a paid model, and she would develop the bulk of her early modeling portfolio in Japan. One of her highlights in the country was a music video for the legendary band Aerosmith.
Three years later, Julia Voth got her best exposure yet when the designers of the Resident Evil video game series asked her to be their face and body model for the character of Jill Valentine. Despite the fact that she knew nothing about the game, Julia Voth was ecstatic to have the opportunity, and the success of the game Resident Evil: Biohazard only added to her own success.
Although her career was still young, Julia Voth pressed on and took further strides to develop her modeling career. Her resume became primarily a mix of TV commercials and magazines. The former included Herbal Essences, Asahi and Uniqlo, while the latter would include Noise, Foam, Eliza, and American Wedding Style. She also modeled for ritzy brands like Shu Uemura, Calfin Klein, Wacoal, and Shiseido, and after moving to Los Angeles, she got more additional attention from Guess? and McDonald’s.
Julia Voth’s blossoming appearances in print didn’t stop there, either. Now working full-time in the United States, she was hired by Maxim to pose in not one but two of their calendars. The first was The Sexiest Women of 2009 and the second was The Best Thing to Happen to 2009.
At this point in her career, Julia Voth was eager to get into acting, and she did so in a big way in 2008. First, she got some voice-over work in the Paris Hilton-led film Repo! The Genetic Opera. Next, she appeared in Hanging Out Hooking Up Falling in Love as a much younger version of actress Carrie-Ann Moss.
In only her fifth audition, Julia Voth got her most notable acting break, snagging the lead role in the ambitious cult/exploitation vehicle Bitch Slap. Playing a no-nonsense stripper with a big heart, she stars opposite a big-name cast that includes Kevin Sorbo of Hercules fame and Lucy Lawless of Xena. What’s more is that the film was shot using special cameras a la 300 and Sin City, which allow the cinematic backgrounds to be substantially stylized. The film introduced Julia Voth to a new legion of fans. She will further increase her acting credibility in 2009 with her role in the film The Anniversary.
