Buescher, Julianne

Julianne Buescher

Julianne Buescher was born in 1965.  She has a BFA in Acting from The Theater School in DePaul (graduating in 1989), Chicago Illinois.  She came across being a puppeteer by shear accident.  While walking around Santa Monica one evening she came across 4 persons in Henson Jackets with Kermit heads.  She stopped them to tell them how wonderful she thought Jim Henson was and what an impact he had on her life.  They told her to come by and say "hello" to him and gave her Kermit's calling card.  She didn't work up enough courage to do so...Henson died two weeks later.

Not too long after that she saw that Henson's son was looking for puppeteers, she went in for the interview and got a job with them...ended up being a puppeteer! (winning 2 Emmy's in the process)

She works to help raise funding for breast cancer since she has struggled with the disease.
