You know someone is destined to play the part of Princess Pumpalot when the costume fits like a glove. Stepping out of the shadows to play Princess Pumpalot in Princess Pumpalot: The Radio Show — Live On Stage! at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the very talented Julie Heatherill.
Julie graduated with a BA Acting degree from Glasgow’s Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD) in 2007. After gaining a great deal of professional experience, she went back to pursue her other love in life: dancing. In 2010 she graduated once again, this time gaining her BTEC in Dance and an A in Higher Dance.
Julie recently performed in Starbird, a co-production between Mull Theatre and Toto Tales, a National Tour of Scotland, Highlands and the Islands.

At the first ever script read-through of Princess Pumpalot: The Farting Princess in 2013, Julie read the part of Princess Pumpalot. It's great she's finally able to play the role, reuniting with Director, Liam Rudden. #Fart2016.
