Early life

Julie Ege Julie Ege Biography Rotten Tomatoes

Ege was born in Høyland, Sandnes, the daughter of brickyard worker Marton Ege and Hjørdis Halvorsen (the often circulated claim she was christened Julie Dzuli is a copy-and-paste error of the phonetical spelling of her first name).

She was a Penthouse Pet of May which landed her a role in 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service as Helen, the "Scandinavian girl". She later starred in Hammer Film Productions' Creatures the World Forgot and The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires. Her other appearances include Every Home Should Have One with Marty Feldman, and the Gluttony segment of The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins.

Ege is probably best remembered for her role in the 1971 comedy hit film Up Pompeii alongside Frankie Howerd. She played Voluptua, a Roman ruler. Her voice, however, was overdubbed by another actress for the film. On being introduced to Lance Percival's character, who says "Madame, it's a pleasure", her famous response is "Yes, I know. I've tried it".

In a UK TV documentary a few years before her death, she stated that she never minded being labelled a glamour actress and that it had been a good life that basically helped pay the bills. She returned to Norway and did a few films before qualifying as a registered nurse in 1998. She lived in Oslo, where she worked as a nurse.
