Julie Carmen (born 4 April 1954) is an American actress who came to some prominence onscreen in the 1980s.She is known as one of the few actresses of Hispanic decent who broke through the barriers in Hollywood, winning the Best Supporting Actress Award at the Venice Film Festival in 1980 for her role in John Cassavetes's "Gloria" opposite Gena Rowlands and Buck Henry. She worked extensively as an actress in Hollywood and Europe, completed YOGA WORKS Teachers' Training and earned her Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology.
