Biography

Childhood

Julia Alexandratou was born on November 24, 1985, to a father who hails from Kefalonia, named Zisimos Alexandratos and a mother who hails from London, England, named Allison Hunt-Alexandratou. Her father is a highly educated mechanical engineer, while her mother is a former model. She also has a sister three years her senior, Artemis Alexandratou.

From a very young age, along with her mother, she modeled in numerous magazines and children's fashion ads. She has modelled since the age of 4 and has also participated and won in countless pageants. At age 7, she was enrolled in ballet lessons, and later on in vocal and acting training, and she exhibited great potential. Julia entered the Miss Young pageant in 2002, and conquered the first prize, at the age of only 15. [3]

During times where there were familial problems, Julia lived in London with her mother for a couple of years. After these times, Julia pulled back from her artistic training.

Personal life

Alexandratou claimed to be in a relationship with famous Greek star-manager and TV personality Elias Psinakis, the ex-manager of Sakis Rouvas. The two were introduced in the spring of 2006, after the pageant. Psinakis was the main judge on the hit Greek reality show Dream Show, where her sister Artemis was a contestant. In January, 2007, Elias posed on the cover of the Greek magazine Tripaki, where Julia conducted the interview, and they both announced their relationship.Although in a later interview she announced the "broke up" confessing that they were only friends [4].

Career

In 2006, Julia returned to the entertainment industry with her participation in the 17th Miss Star Hellas pageant which took place on April 9, 2006 (semi-final), and April 11, 2006 (final), but she did not win.

Julia made her first appearance after the competition on a live show of Fame Story 4, and was a guest singer on the Greek song titled "Mono Ya Sena" ("Only For You") by former Fame Story 3 contestant Andreas Constantinidis, which was featured as the first single on his debut album and she also appeared in the video clip.

A few months later, Julia was a co-host to the hit show Megalicious Chart Live!, alongside Mad TV presenter Themis Georgandas. She did many television appearances, and in the course of one year, did over 10 magazine covers on magazines such as Vogue (greek edition), "Nitro," "Diva," and "Celebrity". Although she started her career as a promising model,she left fashion soon.

Her subsequent fame,led to her hosting her own show, called Music Bee, with her friend Stathis Aitiatoglou. Originally, the show was highly anticipated and had an informative theme of music news in Greece and abroad. Unfortunately, the ratings soon dropped.

In 2007, she released two singles, "Stohos Ine ta Lefta" ("The Target Is Money") and "I Vasilissa tis Pistas" ("The Queen of the Dance Floor"). She also made her film debut in a comedy by Nikos Perakis, playing a small role a singer named Areti,the film premiered in December.

In April 2008, Julia posed on the cover of "Nitro" magazine, assuming the role of Marilyn Monroe. She was voted by readers of the magazine as the best choice to perform the special edition spread. In the fall season, Julia started doing her first concert appearances at an athenian nightclub alongside Greek singer Panos Kalidis. In late 2008, Alexandratou released her new single "Honoloulou," which is a cover of an old song written by Nikos Karvelas.The single was released without Karvelas permission,and it didn't have any notable success.[5]

Pornographic video

In March 3, 2010, a DVD began being sold in many spots in Greece, which contains a pornographic video on which Alexandratou is having sex with an unidentified man, whose face can't be seen throughout the entire video. There is an unconfirmed rumor that this man is pornographic actor Ian Scott.[6]. When first asked by reporters about this video, she and her manager stated that this was the first time they heard about it and they thought it was a joke or a blackmail attempt. Nevertheless, the owner of Sirina Entertainment (the company which distributed the DVD), Dimitris Sirinakis, stated: "I can't reveal how or from whom I got the sex tape, but I can assure you that it was obtained legally." [7] According to a source, over 200,000 copies of the DVD have been sold as of March 4, 2010.[8]

In March 17, 2010, she appeared on Tatiana Stefanidou's TV show, "Axizi na to Dis" and admitted that she performed in the film voluntarily and professionally.[9][10][11]
