Julianne Morris (born May 8, 1968 in Columbia, South Carolina) is an American actress.

She first reached stardom as Amy Wilson on the soap opera The Young and the Restless from November 18, 1994 to May 22, 1996.[1]

After leaving Y&R, Morris returned to daytime as Greta Von Amburg on Days of our Lives from May 15, 1998 to April 19, 2002. For most of her first year on the show, her character was not named, and was simply called "Swamp Girl" (being introduced as an inhabitant of the Louisiana bayous). She spent the next year being romantically involved with Eric Brady while trying to find out what happened to her mother, Princess Gina Von Amberg.

In between her days on Y&R and Days of our Lives, Julianne spent time in South Africa, playing the evil Rumina on "The Adventures of Sinbad." In 1995 she costarred with Charlton Heston, Mickey Rooney, Peter Graves and Deborah Winters in the Warren Chaney production of America: A Call to Greatness.[2]

Since leaving Days of our Lives, Morris has appeared in a few projects, which include a made for TV movie called Another Pretty Face (2002)[3] and a stint on Two and a Half Men.[4]

She has been married to former North Shore star Kristoffer Polaha since June 7, 2003 and gave birth to their first child, Caleb (Kristoffer Caleb Polaha, Jr.) on July 28, 2004. Their second son, Micah, was born April 6, 2006. Their third son, Jude, was born January 2, 2011.
