From the very beginning, Julia Butters' parents nurtured and encouraged her to be creative. The Los Angeles native naturally took to performing re-enactments of scenes from her favorite films. She recently discovered a love for filmmaking and has started to write, edit, direct and star in her own short films.
When Butters was 4 years old, she captured the attention of a Criminal Minds writer while appearing in a commercial for California Almonds. He then went on to write the episode "Gabby" with her in mind.
Butters loves the time spent on set working on new characters. Her most notable roles include work on Transparent; Best Friends Whenever; Term Life, directed by Peter Billingsley; The Rusted, starring opposite Jenna Malone and Josh Hutcherson; 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, directed by Michael Bay; and A Family Man, opposite Gerard Butler and Gretchen Mol.
Outside of acting, her greatest loves in life are school, dancing, singing, art, Brazilian Jiu jitsu and anything cats.
