One of Julia’s favourite movies is "Léon" which is directed by Luc Besson, a fact which explains why she’s been nicknamed Matilda since her school days.

Although she only came 3rd in the show, she was selected to represent Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest which was held May 12, 2004, which raised many eyebrows. She sung the song Believe Me and came #11th place.
