Early life[edit]

Julianne Morris was born on May 8, 1968 in Columbia, South Carolina.[1] Her family relocated to Windermere, Florida, when she was three months old. She is the youngest of two children.[2] Morris graduated from North Carolina School of the Arts and attended American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York.[1]


In 1994, Morris landed a role as Tracy Pinkem in television film Witch Hunt. She played Amy Wilson on the soap opera The Young and the Restless from November 18, 1994 to May 22, 1996 and made a guest appearance on November 25, 2014.[3][4] Morris portrayed Greta Von Amburg on Days of Our Lives from May 15, 1998 to April 19, 2002.[5] She was first introduced on Days of Our Lives as "Swamp Girl". Between her time on Y&R and Days of Our Lives, Morris spent time in South Africa, playing Rumina on the fantasy television series The Adventures of Sinbad.[6] She portrayed Amber Sullivan in television film Another Pretty Face (2002).[7] She has also appeared on Two and a Half Men.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Morris married actor Kristoffer Polaha on June 7, 2003 at the Windermere Chapel.[9][10][11] The couple have three sons named Kristoffer Caleb (b. 2004), Micah (b. 2006) and Jude (b. 2011).[12][13]

She is a practising Christian.[14] She advocates sexual abstinence before marriage, saying "I believe marriage is ordained by God.
