Julia Scarlett Elizabeth Louis-Dreyfus was born in New York City. In the early span of her work, Dreyfus performed in The Second City, which is best known as an improvisation theater group in Chicago. It was another performance with The Practical Theatre Company at their “Golden 50th Anniversary Jubilee” that gave her the opportunity to be cast for NBC’s Saturday Night Live. After departing from SNL, Dreyfus was cast in multiple movies such a Hannah and Her Sisters (1986); Soul Man (1986), and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989).

In early 1990’s, Dreyfus became renowned for her role as Elaine Benes on NBC’s Seinfeld. She played the role for 9 seasons. Dreyfus won several awards for her role in the series whose finale was the most watched episode in the history of television with 76 million viewers. Following Seinfeld, Dreyfus lent her voice to Disney Pixar’s A Bug’s Life and Simpsons. After several years away from Television, Dreyfus began shooting for a new sitcom, Watching Ellie, which premiered in 2002.

In 2005, Dreyfus was cast as the main lead in the new CBS sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine.

In 2011, Dreyfus stars in a lead role as U.S. Vice President Selina Meyer in a new satirical comedy series titled Veep. The series has been a success and subsequently awarded several accolades, most notably six consecutive Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series from 2012-2017.

A day after winning the Emmy for best leading actress (Comedy – Veep) in 2017, she got the news that she was suffering from breast cancer. Since then, she has been really vocal about fighting cancer, helping all cancer patients – specifically, women – and not giving up in the face of fear. She has preached people to help each other through the ordeal of being victim to cancer, especially building on the importance of women supporting women.
