As part of the Seinfeld Fab Four, Julia Louis-Dreyfus was the comic foil for Jerry, Kramer and George for every episode except the pilot.
It only took one episode for Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David to realize they needed a feminine presence on the show. Julia started her career on SNL playing different characters and working with husband Brad Hall. This was the first husband-wife team on the show.
But, it wasn’t until Seinfeld where this billion-dollar heiress landed her own giant paychecks.
The New Adventures of Old Christine broke the Seinfeld curse of failed sit-coms by the former cast members. While her male cast members on Seinfeld are thankful for residuals from their work, Julia is making her own scratch and running her own show.
