Profile Bio Text
Julie Dorne Brown, also known as Downtown Julie Brown (born August 27, 1959), is an English actress and former MTV VJ. Brown`s father was Jamaican and her mother was English. Her father was in the Royal Air Force and she grew up on Air Force bases all around the world including England, Singapore, India and Cyprus and finally settled in Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan in Wales. After winning the World Disco Dancing Championship in 1979 at the age of 20, she began her career on British television as presenter and guest on a number of children`s programs, including the long-running entertainment show Crackerjack. Brown hosted the Club MTV show in the late 1980s. The show had a similar format to American Bandstand, but featured an exclusive lineup of dance music. From this came her famous catchphrase, "Wubba Wubba Wubba." She also appeared as a dancer on Top of the Pops in the early 1980s as a member of the dance troop "Zoo"; she is very prominent on the Christmas Day 1991 show, in particular. MTV capitalized on the confusion between Downtown Julie Brown and comic actress Julie Brown by sending the pair together as correspondents for MTV News, as well as `facing` each other on both their shows (Club MTV and Just Say Julie). After her VJ career declined, she posed nude for the March 1998 edition of Playboy. She has also appeared in a number of movies and TV shows including Spy Hard, Spring Break `83, The Weird Al Show, Ride, Walker, Texas Ranger, Battle Dome , Hey Arnold!, I`m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! and Cesar Millan. Brown`s first short-lived marriage in the early 1980`s was to Phillip Dukes, an airman in the US Air Force stationed at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire. After her divorce, Brown went on to marry Martin Schuemann in 1987 and they live in California with their daughter Gianna.
