Julie Christie, the British movie legend whom Al Pacino called "the most poetic of all actresses", was born in Singlijan Tea Estate, Chabua, Assam, British India on April 14, 1941. She was the elder child of Rosemary (née Ramsden), a painter, and Francis "Frank" St. John Christie. Her father ran the tea plantation where she was raised. She has a younger brother, Clive, and a (now deceased) older half-sister, June, from her father's relationship with an Indian woman, who worked as a tea picker on his plantation. Frank and Rosemary Christie separated when Julie was a child.
