Born Betty May Adams, she relocated to California, where she worked as a secretary, prior to taking acting lessons and being discovered. She made her motion picture debut with a minor role in the film "Red, Hot and Blue" (1949) and for the early part of her she was billed as 'Betty May Adams,' prior to changing her name to Julie Adams, initially for the picture "Bright Victory" (1951).
