Juliette Marquis

Juliette Marquis (born Juliette Dudnik on April 16, 1980) is a Ukrainian born actress, model, and former ballerina. She moved from Ukraine to Chicago, Illinois when she was 8. She started modeling when she was 14 and lived in Paris. She later moved to New York City where she wrote and acted in plays. In 2002 she moved to Los Angeles and soon after got her first movie role. This Girl's Life, co-starring James Woods, Rosario Dawson, Kip Pardue and Michael Rapaport, brought Marquis to the attention of numerous critics, such as Roger Ebert's “…it’s of historical value, because it centers on the first performance of an actress who is going to be a big star.” Screen International’s “…Marquis is the epitome of a movie goddess exuding as much intelligence as sex appeal.” and Variety’s “…proves to be much more than a physical knockout.” She went on to win Best Newcomer Award at the Vegas Film Festival, and a Best Actress Award at the Film Festival Internationale di Milano 2005. Following post production, Juliette was handed a script called "Chicks with Sticks", directed by Kari Scotland (L-Word, Liberty Stands Still). Juliette opted for the role of the street kid, hockey goalie.
