SHREK 2

JULIE ANDREWS is the voice of Princess Fiona's mother, Queen Lillian, who has her own reasons for accepting her daughter's choice of a husband.

For more than half a century, Andrews has been a beloved and much-honored star of stage, screen and television. She was already a Broadway legend when she made her feature film debut in 1964's "Mary Poppins.” Andrews' iconic performance in the title role of the magical nanny brought her an Academy Award®, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA Award. The following year, she earned a second Oscar® nomination and won another Golden Globe Award for her unforgettable portrayal of Maria Von Trapp in "The Sound of Music.” She received her third Academy Award® nomination and won another Golden Globe Award for her "dual” role in "Victor/Victoria.”

Today's film audiences most recently saw Andrews as a queen trying to train her teenaged granddaughter to be a princess in "The Princess Diaries.” She will reprise her role in the upcoming sequel, "The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement.” Her earlier motion picture credits also include "The Americanization of Emily,” "Hawaii,” "Thoroughly Modern Millie,” "Star!,” "Darling Lili,” and "10,” to name only a few.

Andrews was born and raised in England, where she first came to fame as a young musical performer on stage and on radio. She was still in her teens when she made her way across the Atlantic and to Broadway, where she made her debut in 1953 in the musical "The Boy Friend.” She went on to create the role of Eliza Doolittle in Lerner and Loewe's Broadway musical "My Fair Lady,” which became an instant classic and the longest-running musical of its day. Andrews also won a New York Drama Critics Award and garnered a Tony Award nomination for her performance. She received another Tony Award nomination in 1961 when she originated the role of Queen Guinevere in the Lerner and Loewe musical "Camelot.” Thirty-five years later, Andrews returned to Broadway to star in the 1996 stage adaptation of "Victor/Victoria.” 

Andrews has also been honored for her work on television, beginning in 1957 with her Emmy-nominated performance in the title role of Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical "Cinderella.” She later won an Emmy Award for her own musical variety series, "The Julie Andrews Hour,” and also earned Emmy nominations for "Julie and Carol at Lincoln Center,” with her close friend Carol Burnett, her appearance on "The Andy Williams Show,” and her performance in the special "The Sound of Julie Andrews.” Andrews' more recent television work includes "Eloise at the Plaza” and "Eloise at Christmastime,” and she also starred opposite Christopher Plummer in the CBS production of "On Golden Pond.”

Andrews received her honours as a Dame of the British Empire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on New Year's Eve 1999. She was also a 2001 Kennedy Center Honoree.
