Juliet's full name is Juliet Rose Landau.
Juliet played Drusilla in 17 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and 8 episodes of Angel. Her last episode in the BuffyVerse was Angel's "The Girl in Question", and her first was Buffy the Vampire Slayer's "School Hard". Her last Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode was "Lies My Parents Told Me". Her first Angel episode was "Dear Boy".
With famous actors as parents, you could think that Juliet had a lot of pressure on her to become one herself, but she has stated that becoming an actor was completely her own decision.
Juliet has stated that James Marsters is a good kisser.
If Juliet hadn't become an actress, she would've liked to be an archeologist or a therapist.
Juliet lived in London for a few years during her childhood, where she studied at an American school for classical ballet and acting. She didn't return to America and LA until she was 18.
Juliet did her first role in a movie at the age of 25, in the 1990 film Pump Up the Volume. Since then, she had appeared in 15 more films.
Juliet has stated that she loves working with accents. Her role in Justice League Unlimited speaks with a Polish accent. She has stated that she loves the challange of speaking so differently than her own.
Juliet once said that the actors she enjoyed working the most with at the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel were James Marsters, David Boreanaz and Julie Benz. This is very peculiar, as the four of them played close "friends" on the show too. Juliet and Julie Benz are still friends.
Juliet has stated that to her, her most memorable role was the one of Loretta King in the Tim Burton film Ed Wood. She has stated that Tim Burton creates wonderful environments, and that are lovely to work in.
While doing interviews, Juliet has expressed wishes of doing comedy again after acting in several "gloomy" dramas.
Juliet has said that she liked the many different dresses she got to wear as Drusilla on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but also has stated that corsets aren't very comfortable.
In the script Juliet worked with when auditioning for the role of Drusilla on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it was written that the actress could be either American or British. Juliet thought Drusilla would be much more charming if she spoke in a very English, cockney-influenced dialect, and Joss Whedon liked the idea. So it was basically Juliet who decided that her character was British.
Juliet has stated that she enjoyed her scenes with James Marsters the most, while filming Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She's said that they have great chemistry together as actors, and that they had a great time together.
Juliet said in one interview that she had a lot of fun working on Angel in LA. She had many scenes with Julie Benz, and she's stated that they had very much fun together, and that she was a great actress to work with, as they had a lot of chemistry together.
The British accent Juliet used as her character Drusilla on Buffy the Vampire Slayer is fake, as Juliet herself is American.
Juliet's character, Drusilla, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, was originally supposed to be killed off along with Spike, before the 3rd season in an 11 episode arc. Instead, neither of them were killed off, and ended up recurring to the very end of the last episode of Angel.
In 2005, Palisades Toys released a Palz toy based on Juliet's Buffy the Vampire Slayer character, Drusilla. It was released in the second series of Buffy Palz.
Juliet has starred in two films with her father, Martin Landau. The first was Ed Wood in 1994. The other was Carlo's Wake in 1999.

(Juliet's answer upon getting the question about which time period she would like to visit, if she had the chance)
Juliet: I've always wanted to do a period movie, to do something the turn of the century and I'm really fascinated by that whole time period. It's been really so interesting through Buffy to get to visit some of that. Although I can say that corsets aren't really very comfortable.
(Juliet on the wide range of characters she has done throughout the years)
Juliet: I've been really fortunate in the fact that I've gotten a chance to do a real wide range of all different kinds of characters. Drusilla is amazing, and is such a rich character, and then to go from that and work on a New York Italian character, to get that diversity of roles. That's what makes me tick. I love that I've gotten a chance to do a lot of that.
(Juliet on her parents also being successful actors)
Juliet: I have an action figure, and so do my parents, so it's odd that we all have these dolls of ourselves. It's a little bit surreal but kind of fun. You can play with the whole family.
(Juliet's reaction upon getting the question of why she changed from being a dancer to an actress)
Juliet: I loved dancing. I still use my dance background in the different physicality's of each character I work on. Once I started studying acting, I was energized and excited by the verbal exchange, having a conceptual communication of what was being expressed. As a dancer I was technically very proficient, but for me dancing was always about expressing something more. With acting you add the component of language to the above.
(Juliet on why she likes the many different ways of acting)
Juliet: I like working in both movies and television. Television is faster, not very much rehearsal and a lot of material is shot in a day. Big budget movies are luxurious in terms of the schedule. Independent films often shoot fast as well.
(Juliet on her hobbies)
Juliet: I like to read. I go to movies quite a bit. I often go to see friends in theater productions. I hike, stretch and workout. I like to sing. I love going back to acting class and working on new material.
Juliet: I enjoy working on new, different types of characters. Playing a range is what excites me. The character in Tobe Hooper's Toolbox Murders couldn't be more different than Drusilla or Jan/Sarah in La Femme Nikita, or Loretta King in Ed Wood. I've never played an attorney and I'd like to do so on a show like The Practice or Law & Order. I'd love to do a large-scale period movie. There are so many things I'd love to do.
(Juliet on working with actor James Marsters on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel)
Juliet: We created and built Spike and Dru together. Our first season on the show we rehearsed each episode as we got the script. Through the years, it was continually inventive and surprising working with James.
Juliet: I'm fascinated by people in general and what interests them, what it is that someone connects to or what it is that they're passionate about. So I'm always interested when I meet people in terms of what it is that sparked them about the show or what it is that they were drawn to about it.
(Juliet on working with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel creator Joss Whedon)
Juliet: Often when you're working on a series it starts out one way and then it gets delegated to somebody else. Buffy has never had that feeling because there's always been that clarity.
(Juliet on how dancing is still a big factor in her acting career)
Juliet: I loved dancing. I still use my dance background in the different physicality's of each character I work on.
