Sister Julienne is the Sister-In-Charge at Nonnatus House.
Deeply religious, she is also profoundly practical and confers dignity on her patients through her sensitive, non-judgmental approach. She is often called upon to mediate between her fellow sisters when they quarrel - this is an almost exclusively female world, and her tact and gentleness are essential to its happiness.
Jenny Agutter who plays Sister Julienne says about her character: “She finds everything she is involved with really interesting and people are rather extraordinary. Nothing is ordinary or mundane life is amazing.”
