Sister Julienne

Born to a privileged background, she is the polar opposite to Sister Evangelina, in that she is sensitive and non-judgemental. Despite this differing approach, they share a deep friendship which has helped make a success of the Convent.

Her sensitivity means she is often called upon to sort out the quarrels that break out amongst her fellow nuns. It is this tact and her gentle nature that makes her an ideal Sister-In-Charge

She is constantly amazed by life and finds people of Poplar quite extraordinary.

Sister Julienne is played by Jenny Agutter

Success came early for Jenny and she became a child star. But it was one role in particular that was to cement her fame; playing Roberta in the television and film adaptations of E. Nesbitt’s The Railway Children.

Jenny made the tough transition from child to adult star with roles in Logan’s Run, Walkabout and An American Werewolf in London.

Prior to Call the Midwife she had a regular role in Spooks as Senior Case Officer Tessa Phillips.
