Julie is best-known for her lead actress role on Showtime’s 2-time Golden Globe (2009, 2010), 2-time Screen Actors Guild (2009, 2010) and 3-time Emmy-nominated (2008, 2009, 2010) series Dexter as the title character’s beloved wife Rita Bennett. Benz won a 2006 Golden Satellite Award for ‘Best Supporting TV Actress’.
Benz then joined ABC’s smash hit Desperate Housewives for a multi-episode arc as Robin, a stripper with a heart of gold and a Masters degree in education. From 2010-2011 Benz starred in ABC’s fan favourite No Ordinary Family.
Benz also starred in cult-classics such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Roswell, and the Steven Spielberg produced alien abduction miniseries, Taken. She also made several special guest appearances on hit TV shows such as Supernatural, CSI, and Law and Order.
On the big screen, she continued her streak as Eunice Bloom, reuniting herself with the original cast playing the only female lead in the highly-anticipated sequel to the cult-classic Boondock Saints, and Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. She starred opposite Sylvester Stallone in 2008’s most-gruesome action film, Rambo IV, and darkened her hair to play the vengeful blue-collar wife of a murdered cop in The Punisher: War Zone.
Though her rise as a cult-favorite heroine has won the hearts of many thrill-seekers, don’t forget to add her to one of the most successful chillers in the Saw series, Saw 5 as one of JigSaw’s latest victims. Benz also had a great turn with Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets, and starred with Rose McGowan, Pam Grier, Judy Greer and Rebecca Gayheart in the cult hit Jawbreaker.
Julie also played Mayor Amanda Rosewater in the series Defiance, and Inspector Abby Dunn in Hawaii 5-0.
