The lovely and enticing Julie Woodson was born on July 11, 1950 in Hutchinson, Kansas. Woodson studied both business and sociology at UCLA. She went on to attend acting school and worked as an airline stewardess prior to becoming the Playmate of the Month in the April, 1973 issue of “Playboy.” Julie holds the distinction of being the third African-American woman to pose for “Playboy” and being the third African-American Playmate of The Month, after Jennifer Jackson (Miss March 1965), and Jeannie Bell (Miss October 1969). Woodson is the only other Playmate (besides Pamela Anderson) to also appear on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine – which she did in May of 1977.
Woodson was offered a role in the blaxploitation classic “Superfly,” but walked off the set after refusing to do a nude scene. Her sole prominent featured part in a picture was as Doshan in the nifty made-for-TV horror monster cult favorite “The Bermuda Depths.” Julie Woodson eventually quit modeling and now works in construction in her native Kansas.
