'Giulia de Oliveira Gam Heuss (born December 28, 1966) is an Italian-born Brazilian actress.


Granddaughter of a Dane, she became famous in Brazil after performing the young Jocasta Silveira in the soap opera Mandala and since then started a meteoric career in television, despite being one of the most seminal thespians of Brazil.

Giulia's biography registers a respectable stage career, from which she was chosen for her debut in Rede Globo, Giulia played the character Jocasta, when young, in the telenovela Mandala (the adult Jocasta was portrayed by actress Vera Fischer). Giulia came to the telenovela without any experience in television, other than some ads and videos made by friends from an independent film company. She carried out four years of exhaustive and obsessive work in theatre. In the stage, Giulia debuted under direction of Antunes Filho, in the Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet, in São Paulo, in 1984.

With Antunes Filho's company she travelled in a long tour by Australia, Europe, U.S. and Israel. After it dissolved, she travelled to Paris, where she found Peter Brook, who motivated her to go on with her stage career.

In January 1987, back to Brazil, Giulia joined the cast of the Jean Racine play Phèdre, invited by actress Fernanda Montenegro. In October of the same year, she debuted in TV, with a huge success.
