Dubbed “the Queen of B-movies,” Julie Strain has established herself as the reigning monarch of a rarefied kingdom whose subjects include chainsaw-wielding lesbian hookers, virgin-sacrificing sorceresses, 6’7″ dominatrixes, Satanic cops, and horny vampires. Standing a proud 6’1″ and packing more silicon than the Dupont plant, Strain has starred in over 80 films, most of which have gone straight to video and into the hearts and hormones of remote control-toting men everywhere.
Hailing from Concord, California, where she was born February 18, 1962, Strain had a lower-income, middle-American upbringing. Her life changed drastically when, at the age of 11, she was kicked in the head by a horse and suffered total amnesia as a result. After spending many years reconstructing her identity from scratch and enduring an unsatisfying marriage, Strain decided to head for Hollywood at the ripe old age of 28. Although she initially encountered extreme poverty, perseverance and a willingness to do just about anything allowed the aspiring actress to prevail, and five years later she had starred in a dizzying number of films and videos with names like Witchcraft 4: Virgin Heart and Bimbo Movie Bash, had been named Penthouse magazine’s 1993 “Pet of the Year,” and had seen her likeness reproduced on everything from calendars to coffee mugs.
Although Strain has stuck largely to the B-movie realm, she has made the occasional foray into mainstream film, appearing in such features as Kuffs (1992), Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult (1994), and Beverly Hills Cop III (1994), the last of which billed her simply as “Annihilator Girl.”
