Julia Davis

Julia Davis

Date of birth: 30-11-1965
After studying English and drama at York St John University, Julia Davis formed an comedy group which also featured Rob Brydon and Ruth Jones.

Her career was given a further boost in 1998 after she sent a tape of her work to Steve Coogan who invited her to write and tour with him.

Some of the early improvisations with Brydon would form the basis for their breakthrough 2000 series Human Remains, while other early TV work included being a regular cast member of Big Train and Blue Jam.

In 2004 Davis wrote and starred in the black comedy Nighty Night, which ran for two series, and in 2010 she co-wrote and co-starred in the equally dark Lizzie and Sarah with Jessica Hynes, but to their chagrin, BBC Two aired the pilot late at night and it never took off for a series.

In 2012, she starred in the spoof melodrama Bad Sugar, shown on Channel 4, with a full series in 2013, and also the period comedy Hunderby which she created and wrote for Sky Atlantic, the first show she made for the broadcaster followed by Camping and Sally4Ever .

Davis lives in North London with Mighty Boosh star Julian Barratt, and their twin boys Walter and Arthur, born on June 25, 2007.

Julia Davis and Charlie Cooper join Stath Lets Flats

Filming wraps on series three

Julia Davis and Charlie Cooper are to make guest appearances on the third series of Stath Lets Flats, Channel 4 has announced.

Filming has just wrapped on Jamie Demetriou’s Bafta-winning comedy, which picks up where the last ended: with his title character having to rescue the family business.

Davis will play Kris, the belittling and snobbish sister of Katy Wix’s character Carole; while This Country co-creator Cooper plays Gregory - a lettings agent who is passionately devoted to his wife and runs a rival agency called Live Love Lets.

Also making a guest appearance when the series airs later this years is David Avery, whose credits include The Night Manager and We Are Lady Parts, who plays Bambos, Stath’s flash barber cousin.

The returning cast includes Natasia Demetriou, Kiell Smith-Bynoe, Ellie White, Al Roberts and Christos Stergioglou – while Nick Mohammed, David Mumeni and Tom Stourton will be reprising their guest roles.

Demetriou said: ‘Times are the worst they have been in living memory, but fear not, a sitcom about a lettings agency is back for a third series!

‘All the characters (bar a few who had availability issues) are back and saying stuff all over again! Get ready to hear what they say! Listen closely and you might even hear a thing or two from some new celebrated guest stars. Did somebody say…. the whole England football team?? No, it’ll be comedy actors.’
