Julius Harris

Born: 17 / 8 / 1923 , Philadelphie , Usa – 17/10/2004 Los Angeles,Usa


Prior to breaking into films, Philadelphia native Julius Harris worked as a bouncer in New York City.

It was due to his many associations with struggling actors, that on a dare, Harris auditioned for his first role, in the well-received picture Nothing But a Man (1964), in which he played a father in the South, alongside Ivan Dixon and Abbey Lincoln.

After, this, the 40+ year old Harris’ impressive physique and deep voice helped enable him to rack up numerous appearances in the then popular blaxploitation genre.

It was Harris’ strong appearance in supporting roles in such low-budget films as Les nouveaux exploits de Shaft (1972), Super Fly (1972), and Black Caesar, le parrain de Harlem (1973), which helped springboard him into better quality productions.
