Julie Walters - That's Another Story, the Autobiography

Julie Walters’ autobiography, That’s Another Story, has been selected by Richard & Judy for their Christmas Books special.

Julie will be appearing on Richard & Judy’s New Position on Watch TV on Wednesday 3rd December 8pm.

Julie Walters has been described as the nation's most popular actress and comedienne. She has been delighting us on screen and on stage for over 25 years - and now, for the first time, she tells us her own story.

Born in 1950s Birmingham Julie was sent to school in a convent. She always wanted to be an actress but to appease her mother she first went into nursing. This didn't last for long - she soon went to join the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool.

West End success was followed by films, and an Academy Award nomination for her role in Educating Rita. Julie's collaborations with her close friend Victoria Wood have given us, among others, the unforgettable character 'Mrs Overall', and she's recently charmed a new generation of fans playing Mrs Weasley in the Harry Potter films.

Julie's life away from the public eye has not run so smoothly. Shortly after the death of her mother, her two-year-old daughter Maisie was diagnosed with leukaemia.

Julie Walters reveals with characteristic wit and candour the highs and the lows of a remarkable life.

That's Another Story moved up to the second spot in the Top 50 Bestsellers list this week, with sales almost doubling at 64,405.

Sounds like a good read -- and an interesting clip too.
