Perdita Weeks

Perdita Weeks is a Welsh actress best known for her role as "Juliet Higgins" in the series Magnum P.I. Born in Cardiff, Wales, Weeks studied art history at the distinguished Courtauld Institute in London. Growing up, she was spotted by an acting agent and was then cast in a detergent commercial with her brother. She eventually received a performing arts scholarship during her teenage years and attended an all-girls boarding school. Her two siblings, Honeysuckle Weeks and Rollo Weeks are also both actors.

When she was asked to play "Miss Potter" in the biopic of Beatrice Potter, Weeks left her university at age 20 to pursue a full-time career in acting. Since then, she has appeared in various British television series, such as Lost in Austen (2008) and The Tudors (2007-2008).

In 2018, Perdita Weeks starred in Steven Spielberg's featured film, Ready Player One, and shortly thereafter began filming for the reboot of Magnum P.I. Perdita currently lives in England when she's not filming.
