Julie Bishop was an American film and television actress. She appeared in over 80 films between 1923 and 1957. Bishop was born Jacqueline Wells and used her birth name professionally through 1941. She also appeared on stage (and in one film) as Diane Duval. She settled on the name by which she is best remembered when offered a contract by Warner Bros. on the condition that she change her name, which was associated with her almost exclusively B-movie appearances through 1941 (amounting to nearly 50 films over 17 years). She was among several former Wayne co-stars (including Laraine Day, Ann Doran, Jan Sterling, and Claire Trevor). Bishop had one daughter, actress Pamela Susan Shoop, and one son (also by Shoop), like his father a pilot.
