Julie Carp is portrayed by actress Katy Cavanagh and made her first onscreen apearence on 25th April 2008. [1]



She first appeared waiting at the Rovers, where she briefly spoke to Dev Alahan, she was waiting her boyfriend, Kirk Sutherland to arrive. She has so far clashed with Fiz Brown and has appeared on several occasions, including Kirk's nephew, Paul's funeral. She is a bubbly character who likes to think she shares a personal empathy with other people's problems. This was particularly evident at the funeral of baby Paul as she was very moved by the sadness of the occasion and when Chesney, Fiz's brother developed a crush on Kayleigh Morton, Julie was interested, as she had made Kirk tell her.

She clashed with Fiz several times, as Fiz felt she was trying to take over and Julie thought Fiz wanted Kirk back. Julie was not seen for several months, but reappeared in July, apparently now living with Kirk, Chesney, and Fiz. When they found out John Stape had been making anonymous phone calls to Fiz, Julie suggested Fiz go to the police. She was also on hand with Kirk when his friend Tyrone Dobbs proposed to Molly Compton. Julie looked for a job in the factory after having spoken to Tony Gordon and managed to get a job and is covering for Fiz's friend Sally whilst she goes on holiday. Despite the past conflicts between Fiz and Julie, they are now good friends, this was evident on 25th August 2008, Julie spotted Fiz having a drink with John and later told Fiz that she thought John was a kind man and she suggested Fiz reconcilate with him.

On 3rd September 2008 Julie admitted that she has had two previous engagement and a disastrous marriage before she met Kirk.

Behind the scenes

  • Since Julie's arrival Katy has signed a contract so Julie can stay on the soap at least until Christmas 2008.
