Under the Dome

When a mysterious Dome sealed her town off from the rest of the world, she banded together with Iraq War veteran Dale Barbara and several other citizens in order to survive. She shows pure hatred towards Big Jim, Pete Randolph, Junior and Andy Sanders. She becomes deeply upset and furious when her newspaper office is destroyed and moves in with Andrea Grinnell and helps her overcome her OxyContin addiction. She is one of the few survivors when the town blows up.


Julia shares her surname with the alien life form Gordon Shumway.


In the 2013 miniseries, Shumway is played by Rachelle Lefevre.
