Julia's popular recurring role on Stargate Universe allows her to play a versatile and engaging character - a woman who embodies a fighter and can hold her own, but also has a softer side and is able to reveal her vulnerability. The series follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an alien spaceship, which is locked on an unknown course and unable to return to Earth. The danger, adventure and hope they find onboard the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.
