Raul Julia (born 9 March 1940 Puerto Rico) was an American actor.
He moved to the United States in 1964 and almost immediately began getting small roles in Broadway productions. Julia was nominated for four Tony Awards for best actor but never won.
A strong Shakespearean performer, Julia won acclaim in 1982's Tempest. In 1985 he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for best actor for his work in Kiss of the Spider Woman. His last theatrical film was Street Fighter: The Movie. That film is dedicated to his memory.
Julia is probably best-known for taking over the role of Gomez Addams in the film, The Addams Family, and its sequel, Addams Family Values. A third installment was planned but scrapped when Julia suddenly died of complications from a stroke at the young age of 54.
