Julie Walters Pop Art
Stylish pop art illustration of Julie Walters, the iconic Acorn Antiques actress, who played Mrs Overall in the classic soap spoof which featured in “Victoria Wood as Seen on TV”.

The wonky sets, shaky camerawork, random plots, missed cues, and fluffed lines perfectly lampooned low-budget TV such as Crossroads.

Set in “Manchesterford”, the iconic “Acorn Antiques” characters of Miss Babs, Miss Berta, & Mrs Overall debuted on BBC Two as part of the ground-breaking comedy series “Victoria Wood as Seen on TV”.

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.
