Wiki

Julia Scarlett Elizabeth Louis-Dreyfus (pronounced /ˈluːiː ˈdraɪfəs/; born January 13, 1961) is an American actress and comedian, widely known for her sitcom roles in Seinfeld and The New Adventures of Old Christine.

She rose to prominence as one of the regular cast members of Saturday Night Live in the early 1980s. She was later cast in the role of Elaine Benes on the NBC sitcom Seinfeld. Her performance over nine seasons earned her an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe Award and five Screen Actors Guild Awards. In 2002, she and her husband developed the series Watching Ellie, which achieved limited success. In 2006 she tried her luck again with a new sitcom and subsequently earned her second Emmy Award as Christine Campbell in the sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine, which lasted for five seasons on CBS. In May 2010, Louis-Dreyfus received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame due to her contribution to the broadcast television industry.

Louis-Dreyfus was born in New York City, to Judith, a writer and special needs tutor, and Gérard Louis-Dreyfus (also known as William Louis-Dreyfus), a French attorney and business executive. Her paternal grandfather was Pierre Louis-Dreyfus, a French Jew who fought in the French Resistance during World War II. Her parents divorced a year after her birth in 1962. After relocating to Washington, D.C., when Julia was eight, her mother married L. Thompson Bowles, Dean of the George Washington University Medical School.
