In 2013, she played Natalie in The Syndicate.

She has also had roles in Doctors, Holby City, Waterloo Road, The Bill and Casualty.

Who is Juliette?

Carl Holliday is the biological son of Juliette and Jimmy King.

Carl was conceived after a mix up at the fertility clinic. This mix up led to Juliette being given the wrong man’s sperm.

In 2014, when Juliette was pregnant with her son, she tracked down Jimmy so he could sign the papers that waved his rights to his unborn child. But she ended up going into labour.

At first Juliette did allow Jimmy to have access to Carl. But when she reconciled with her estranged husband Greg, she stopped Jimmy seeing his son as she wanted to be a family with Greg and Carl.

In 2016, Jimmy called Juliette to check on his son, however Greg had left Juliette.
