Julia Grace Hopkins
Advanced Actor Combatant
Julia Hopkins is a Philadelphia bred actor and fighter. Her love for the theatre developed in high school and brought her to concentrate in acting at Temple University. Storytelling has always been a passion of hers. A well told tale offers anything from an exciting escape to an eye-opening revelation.
Her second greatest love is found in martial arts. Julia has been training Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 2012. She enjoys the discipline and strength in training, as well as the adrenaline of competition.
While studying at Temple, Julia was able to mesh her two passions together with the Society of American Fight Directors. Stage combat offers a safe way to depict the primal human lust towards violence when words are no longer enough. Julia has been lucky to study under and work with Fight Master, Ian Rose, and is now certified in all eight disciplines with the SAFD.
With an infinite love for fighting, be it on stage or in the ring, Julia's goal for the next chapter in her life is to find her place in the stunt industry.
