JULIET LANDAU was born in Los Angeles, California in 1972. She was a professional ballerina. She studied extensively with the late SUSAN PERETZ and is a member of the Actors Studio. This year, Juliet delved into the world of directing with TAKE FLIGHT. It has been an incredible journey. Juliet co-starred in TIM BURTON’S ED WOOD as Loretta King and starred opposite WHOOPI GOLDBERG in New Line Cinema’s THEODORE REX. She created the role of Drusilla on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, appearing on BUFFY and spin-off show ANGEL over the course of six seasons. Steve Vineberg of THE NEW YORK TIMES hailed “The wildly gifted Juliet Landau plays Drusilla like an acid-addled cross between Ophelia and Cassandra.” Lead roles in Independents include: the soon to be released THE YELLOW WALLPAPER, DARKNESS VISIBLE, HACK, TOOLBOX MURDERS, REPOSSESSED, CARLO”S WAKE, LIFE AMONG THE CANNIBALS, RAVAGER, DIRECT HIT, CITIZENS and a co-starring turn in HENRY JAGLOM’S GOING SHOPPING. TV guest appearances include: MILLENNIUM, LA FEMME NIKITA, STRONG MEDICINE and a starring role in the Lifetime movie REUNION. She just completed a project for HBO directed by JAKE SCOTT. She has lent her voice to various characters on the popular animated series’ JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED and BEN 10 as well as the GREEN LANTERN film. Juliet has received outstanding reviews for her work in the theater each time out. These much-acclaimed lead roles include: AWAKE AND SING! at The Pittsburgh Public Theater, the world premiere of FAILURE OF NERVE, UNCOMMON WOMEN AND OTHERS, THE PUSHCART PEDDLERS, BILLY IRISH, WE’RE TALKING TODAY HERE, the musical HOW TO STEAL AN ELECTION, the West Coast premiere of IRISH COFFEE and the world premiere of MURRAY SHISGAL’S musical THE SONGS OF WAR. She just worked on a reading of THE THREE SISTERS that AL PACINO put together at the Actors Studio. She has written the short film, “IT’S RAINING CATS AND CATS,” and adapted ANDREW PRINE’S play “CISSY” into a short as well. She is raising funds for these projects via her website, (julietlandau.com) as fellow BUFFY alum AMBER BENSON did to make her two feature films. She will helm the projects this year.
