After relocating to Washington, D.C., when Julia was eight, her mother married L. Thompson Bowles, Dean of the George Washington University Medical School. Louis-Dreyfus has two half-sisters on her Louis-Dreyfus side, Emma and Phoebe. Louis-Dreyfus also appeared in a few sitcoms and films over the years, and is widely known for her nine-season role as “Elaine Benes” on NBC’s Seinfeld from 1990 to 1998, appearing in all but three episodes. After Seinfeld, Louis-Dreyfus began a new NBC sitcom, Watching Ellie, which was canceled after two abbreviated seasons. She was nominated for Emmys for the show’s subsequent four seasons, but lost to Tina Fey for 30 Rock, America Ferrera for Ugly Betty, Toni Collette for The United States of Tara and Edie Falco for Nurse Jackie. The series was cancelled by CBS in May 2010 after five seasons.
