In HOME, Julie vividly recreates the years before she burst on to the movie screen in her iconic roles as Mary Poppins and Maria Von Trapp. An idyllic early childhood in Surrey was cut short when her parents divorced and her mother remarried. The family moved to London, where Julie grew up during the Blitz. Her mother went into musical theatre with her stepfather, who encouraged Julie to have singing lessons - which led to the discovery that her voice had phenomenal range and strength for someone her age. Before long, Julie was appearing on stage with her parents, revelling in life in the footlights and, by the time she was a teenager, she was supporting her whole family with her stage performances. A London Palladium pantomime led to a starring role in The Boyfriend on Broadway at the age of only 19. Parts in My Fair Lady opposite Rex Harrison and Camelot with Richard Burton soon followed before she got the call from Disney which led to her starring role in Mary Poppins and to worldwide fame.
