Of the Highest Caliber...
"Her quick wit and grasp of text is of the highest caliber. And she's damn funny! Every project I come across, I'm always looking for a way to cast Julie Ryan."
~ Michael Cuesta, Director, Writer, Producer "Homeland"
A Treat to Behold...
"Julia! She is just incredible. LOVE LOVE LOVE watching her. She is a treat to behold. Truly. She makes everything and anything work. Every playwright on the planet should worship at her feet. Thank you for showing me how it's done."
~ Bekka Lindström, Actress, Star of "MoM, A Rock Concert Musical"
"She is a Mother-Fuckress! A Mother-Fuckress! And I only say that about the very best, the ones who have it, the real talent, the strongest actors - a force to be reckoned with."
~ Jeffrey Tambor
She's Got Balls
"In one scene early in the film, Julia's character, a passive-agressive widow who has successfully emasculated her son, is casually interacting with him. Her choices were excellent and her timing perfect. Then it happened: as she turns from her son, she makes a facial expression that totally conveys her unequivocal disappointment in and distain for her only child. In screenings, audiences groan. She's got balls. "
~ A. P. Ferullo, Director, "Peepers"
Born to Be on Stage
"Julia Ryan was born to be on stage. I wish I could cast her in every play I do. Touching! Funny! Inspirational! She has the capacity to draw an audience in with her multi-leveled performances. Her ability to make you feel like you are there with her on stage is exemplary. She is a joy to watch and to work with." ~ Linda Selman, Director, Playwright, Producer
"I could not have asked for a stronger actor or collaborator than Julia. Upon reading the script for the first time she not only understood my intentions, but also made her own creative choices that brought dimension and personality to the character. On top of taking directions gracefully, at any instance where I struggled to articulate my desire for a scene, Julia could instantly clarify it with her own improvisations and understanding of the story's message and themes. I would be honored to work with her again."
~ Carly Reicho, Filmmaker
