Julie Adams / Julia Adams
Born on October 17, 1926 in Waterloo, Iowa, USA
Died on February 3, 2019 in Los Angeles, California
Julie Adams had film credits through 2018, her final being a 21 minute short titled The Lucky Southern Star which parallels in some ways Adams' autobiography of the same title, a short telling the tale of a young woman (named Betty) who travels to Hollywood and works her way up through the acting ranks to star in a remake of Creature from the Black Lagoon.
Adams' has an autobiography in print (there is also an audio book version) at her official web site here. The web site has more information, including audio of an interview with her about the book The Lucky Southern Star - Reflections from the Black Lagoon.
[Betty Adams, Julia Adams and Julie Adams are all the same person. Betty Adams was her birth name, and Julia was her original stage name before settling on 'Julie.']
