Bio

As an actress, writer, producer and forest scientist (PhD) at the University of British Colombia, fluent in German, English and Spanish, as well as an active Modern Pentathlete (pistol-shooting, fencing, swimming, running and horseback-riding) Julia Dordel is a very versatile talent.


Born and raised in Germany, she demonstrated her love of film as well as of science and nature early on. During her school years she played the leading roles in school theatre plays and musicals and produced her own documentary films for science classes. Encouraged by her parents to pursue a career in business or science, Julia completed an apprenticeship in a bank, studied a couple of terms of economics and finished an undergraduate degree, two Masters and a PhD in Forest Sciences, while modeling, working at a radio station and studying theatre and film acting at the same time.

Frustrated by the fact that the word about innovative green science discoveries, with the potential to change the world for the better, rarely gets out to the public, as well as motivated by her love for film, Julia founded together with a fellow actress (Anita Reimer) the film production company Libelle Productions in Vancouver (Canada) and later Dorcon Film in Hanover (Germany) - where she can be seen in various film productions.
