The Two Julies
The Two Julies are prostitutes who work as a team - "She knobs, I robs". They are inseparable, sharing mannerisms, a secret language and in-jokes. On the outside, they would be seen as a couple of nutters, in Larkhall, their eccentricities entertain the entire Wing.
The Two Julies are warm and caring and have an answer to everyone's problems - except their own. They have a dream about getting out and travelling to America to track down Julie J's stolen kids.
Kika and Victoria spoke together about their twinned characters. "Julie J is run by Julie S and Julie S is definately the more dynamic one," says Kika.
Victoria says: "And Julie J is not quite so clever but is very good hearted. She also thinks she is a medium - and reads tarot cards as well.
"They are great at helping other people and do everything together. They live together, share everything - even in terms of clothes and make-up."
Kika adds: "Yes, we love our hair and beauty treatments and together they've made their cell really cosy. They sing and dance - they are liked by the other characters, but they have had a rough time inside."
Victoria says "but no one touches the two Julies as they know how to make it work inside. Now, they do very nicely inside."
The two Julies really are joined at the hip and working so closely with another actress is not something that many people have to do in their careers.
Kika says "We had never worked together before, but we get on brilliantly."
"Yeah, I had no worries after we had met. We have the same sort of attitudes to things," adds Victoria.
But they do slightly disagree on how they would cope if they ever found themselves in trouble with the law and locked up.
"I certainly wouldn't do my time the way the Julies do it. I'd want to do Open University courses and things like that." But Victoria says: "I can see the good points of shutting yourself off in your own little world - so I think I would take a couple of leaves out of their book."
And for Kika and Victoria, theirs has perhaps been the easiest 'sentence'.
"It hasn't felt like a prison sentence at all, doing this. Out work is the comic relief in the series and it's been good to do." says Kika.
"Yeah," agrees Victoria. "In something as tense and dramatic as Bad Girls it's been nice to play a couple of characters who show the lighter side of prison life."
But Kika adds: "But they do have hard times as well. I think they just make the best of it."
