Personal life[edit] White was born in the Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego, California, the daughter of Sue Jane (née Terry), a therapist, and Edwin White, a dentist.[1] White and her family moved to Austin, Texas, to take up ranching when she was three years old. She started acting in local plays and became a semi-professional at 16. While she was playing the lead role in the musical The Baker's Wife, the show's authors encouraged her to take her talent to New York City.[2] After graduating from high school, she attended Southwest Texas State University (now known as Texas State University) and then attended Fordham University
Fordham University
as an English major, although she did not graduate.[2][3] White married Carl Pandel in 1984; they divorced in 1990.[4] Career[edit] White has been a prolific stage actress, getting her start in regional theatre. Some of her regional theater credits include On the Verge at the Huntington Theatre Company, Boston, Massachusetts, 1985–1986,[5] Largo desolato at the Yale Repertory Theatre, New Haven, Connecticut, 1990-1991,[5] Marvin's Room at Seattle Repertory Theatre in January 1992,[6] Absurd Person Singular in 1993 at the Long Wharf Theatre,[7] Money and Friends

and Tony Goldwyn

in 1992. Frank Rich

wrote: " Julie White
Julie White
makes a far more vivid impression. Rail-thin but with a broad face and features, this actress has an off-center style and piquant wit that make her a natural for high comedy of this or any other period."[14] White appeared in a one-woman show, Theresa Rebeck's Bad Dates, written especially for her. The play premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in June 2003.[15][16] On Broadway, White appeared in Wendy Wasserstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, The Heidi Chronicles, as a replacement.[17] She also appeared in the made-for-television movie of The Heidi Chronicles, which aired in 1995.[18] In 2006, she appeared Off-Broadway in The Little Dog Laughed by Douglas Carter Beane, playing Diane, a screen agent, who, as one critic put it, is "a Mephistopheles in Manolos".[19] The show transferred to Broadway in October 2006 with a new cast, including former Grace Under Fire
Grace Under Fire
costar Tom Everett Scott. She won the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress
in a Play for her performance.[20] White played Nadine, the quirky neighbor on Grace Under Fire. White joined the show when it launched in 1993 and appeared in the first four seasons. [21] However, she did not appear in the show's final season. Her departure was attributed to conflict with the show's star, Brett Butler.[22] White has subsequently made several guest appearances on HBO's Six Feet Under as Mitzi Dalton-Huntley [23][24] and on NBC's Law & Order: Special
Victims Unit as Dr. Anne Morella. White also appeared on Desperate Housewives

and its sequels, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. White appeared in the ABC sitcom Cavemen in 2007. In 2008, White received a Drama Desk Award nomination as Outstanding Actress
in a Play for her role in the play From Up Here.[26] In 2009, she appeared in the HBO
original movie Taking Chance
Taking Chance
starring Kevin Bacon.[27] She also lent her voice to the 2009 computer-animated film Monsters vs. Aliens.[28] White has served several times as a guest judge on the reality TV series Iron Chef America.[29] White stepped into the role of Masha, originated by Sigourney Weaver, in Christopher Durang's play Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, on Broadway, from July 28 to August 25, 2013, at the Golden Theatre.
