Julie Walters Pop Art
The wonky sets, shaky camerawork, random plots, missed cues, and fluffed lines perfectly lampooned low-budget TV such as Crossroads.
The impact of the soap-parody lasted beyond the original two series, spawning a mock-documentary about the life of the Mrs Overall actress Bo Beaumont during the 1987 Christmas special, and Mrs Overall’s revival in “The Mall” in 1992.
Victoria Wood created a West End production in 2005 which saw Julie Walters reprise the role of Mrs Overall in the award-winning “Acorn Antiques: The Musical!”.
Part of Victoria Wood’s repertory of regular performers, including Duncan Preston & Celia Imrie, Walters appeared in many of Victoria Wood’s projects including “Pat & Margaret”, “Dinnerladies”, “Talent”, “Nearly a Happy Ending”, “Happy Since I Met You”, and “Wood & Walters”.
Julie Walters credits include “Educating Rita” with Michael Caine, “Personal Services” with Stephen Lewis, “Prick Up Your Ears” about Joe Orton, and “Stepping Out” with Liza Minnelli, to name a very few.
