Julie Walters has been described as the nation's most popular actress and comedienne. She has been delighting us on screen and on stage for over 25 years and - thanks to her undoubted talent, infectious spirit and self-deprecating humour - we have taken her to our hearts.

Now she tells us her own story, in her own words. She was born in 50s Birmingham, daughter of an austere Irish Catholic mother. She was sent to school in a convent and from a young age always wanted to be an actress - but to appease her mother she first went into nursing. This didn't last for long, though, and she soon went to join The Everyman Theatre in Liverpool. West End success with Educating Rita followed, and she quickly replicated her success on film, playing opposite Michael Caine. Julie's collaborations with her close friend Victoria Wood have given us, among others, the unforgettable character 'Mrs Overall' in Acorn Antiques.

Julie has also starred in a range of films including Billy Elliot, Calendar Girls and Mamma Mia!, and she has recently charmed a new generation of fans playing Mrs. Weasley in the Harry Potter films.

This, her long-awaited autobiography, candidly reveals all the highs and lows in an extraordinary life. It is a remarkable piece of writing: funny, painfully felt, moving, warm, fiercely intelligent and - above all - wholly entertaining. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 2/11/2014

    " Funny from the start, have always liked Julie Walters and some of her stories are hilarious. Great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 2/1/2014

    " I had thought there would have been more of a story here, but it was ok. Loved her tales of being a nurse. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ay | 1/14/2014

    " Very interesting and of course, funny! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isobel | 1/9/2014

    " Not usually my genre - celeb autobiography but having read Dawn French, thought I may enjoy this and I did. Not amazing but interesting, well written and self-deprecating. Comes over, as in other mediums, as someone with her feet firmly on the ground, who recognises her good fortune at succeeding in a job she enjoys. I enjoyed the detail of her earlier life and am astounded at how much people recall - maybe when one starts, it all flows back. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo at Jaffareadstoo | 1/7/2014

    " I think that Julie Walters had done a really interesting autobiography. I especially enjoyed the bits about her early years and growing up with her family. Parts of it made me laugh out loud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 7/8/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. She made me laugh so much. I am such an admirer of her work and she has now gone up more in my estimation. She spoke throughout the book on her acting career and stayed away from a therapy style autobiographies that are gracing our shelves these days. A wonderful read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/17/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dianne | 10/21/2012

    " Julie read this story to me - in my head that is.... It sounds like her all the way through. Interesting, sad, funny, funny and funny. Sent me to youtube to watch Mrs Overall. Hilarious! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Bennett | 7/18/2012

    " A good read, quite interesting. Not as funny as I thought it would be. She's an amazing actress though, which makes up for it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 7/4/2010

    " Absolutely hilarious from start to finish, and not your typical "star" story. Ms Walters' honest shines through the prose with an earthy grittiness that one can immediately relate to.
    I loved reading it and once I got started I couldn't stop. "
