Julie Ann Strain (February 18, 1962 – January 10, 2021) was an American actress and model. She was chosen by Penthouse as Pet of the Month in June 1991 and Pet of the Year in 1993. Her biggest mainstream acting role was Julie, the protagonist in Heavy Metal 2000.
Strain was born in Concord, California. A graduate of Diablo Valley College, she had an extensive athletic background. She eventually made her way to Las Vegas and later Hollywood, California.
With over 100 films to her credit, Strain became known as the "Queen of the B-movies". In addition, she was Penthouse Pet of the Month for June 1991 and Penthouse Pet of the Year for 1993. She has also had her likeness attached to numerous comic book characters and animation items. For example, she did the voice acting for the main character in the animated movie Heavy Metal 2000 and was the basis for the video game Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.².
Personal life and death
Strain was 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m) tall. She was married to Kevin Eastman from 1995 to 2006, and they had a son, Shane (born 2006). Much of her youth was wiped from her memory by retrograde amnesia, due to a head injury after a fall from a horse in her 20s.[when?]
In November 2018, her boyfriend announced that she was in the late stages of dementia, believed to be a result of her fall, and was receiving hospice care at home. In January 2020, she was incorrectly reported to have died, by Malibu Bay Films, a studio which Strain worked with frequently. Once proven untrue, the studio quickly retracted their statement. One year later, Strain died on January 10, 2021, aged 58.
In 1997, Heavy Metal published Strain's autobiography, Six Foot One and Worth the Climb.(ISBN 1-8829-3133-5) It was heavily illustrated with stills from her film and modeling career, plus paintings by Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell and Olivia De Berardinis.
