Personal life

Julia Watson was born on 13 September 1953 in Maesteg and brought up in the Derby area. Talking about her parents in an interview with the Casualty fansite,, she comments that they were fantastic and devoted. She cites this as reason why she feels so torn between career and family. She is married to the writer, David Harsent; they met at a dinner party and eventually married in a register office in Fulham. They have a daughter, Hannah, born in 1990 and Watson says of her that she is their "greatest born and blessing."


Watson studied Drama and English at Exeter University. Previous jobs include founding a Community Centre in Newcastle and working in Education at the Nottingham Theatre. In addition to her acting roles, she has edited anthologies of poetry and readings for weddings, funerals and naming ceremonies.
