We are sorry to have to announce the death of Julie Fountain, one of Equity's Careers' Advisors.
Julie was based in North West England and got her Equity card aged 16. Her career spanned theatre and television as a dancer and actor but she was also a director and used her considerable combined skills to work on theatre in prisons projects and to help develop the talents of local young people.
She became one of our Careers' Advisors in 2005 and alongside her performing career, she regularly delivered advice and guidance to individuals in the region doing a lot of sessions in our Manchester office. Julie also supported Equity at industry events such as Surviving Actors and Edinburgh Fringe, providing participants with some on-the-spot advice and she led workshops for emerging artists and those returning to work.
Julie has helped countless members at all stages in their careers. We are grateful for her work on behalf of members and she will be greatly missed.
