Juliet Landau, 32, is the daughter of actors Martin Landau and Barbara Bain, and the sister of producer Susan B. Landau (whose movies include Bram Stoker's Dracula, Cool Runnings and An Ideal Husband).
Juliet's career in show business started out in dance - she was a dancer for about 4 and a half years and finally took acting classes which provided her with theatre work and then a supporting role in the movie Ed Wood.
Juliet didn't actually audition for the role of Drusilla - Joss had seen her work in Ed Wood and he called her agent; they met and read through some pages of the script and talked over the character, and ultimately she got the part.
