Early lifeEdit

Juri was raised in Ambrì, a village in the Italian-speaking Canton of Ticino in Switzerland.[3] She is fluent in German, English and Italian.[4] She learned German and Italian as a small child and picked up English at 15. Her father is a lawyer and her mother is a sculptor [5] In school, she played hockey for HC Ambrì-Piotta and went on to be a forward for the Swiss Schweizer Meister Class A team, SC Reinach.[6] From 2005 until 2010, she studied theater in Los Angeles and London.[7] Juri started her acting career by hopping between auditions in Berlin, London, and Rome.[8] She maintained a busy schedule trying to find work while making use of her trilinguialism.[8]


  • From 2005 to 2007, Juri was coached by Douglas Matranga in Los Angeles.[9]
  • Between 2007-2008, she took part in the ensemble of the Theatrical Arts Theatre Company in Los Angeles.[10]
  • From 2008 to 2010, Juri attended acting classes at The Actors Centre in London.[10]


Juri's first film appearance was in the short film Midday Room. In 2011, she received the Swiss Film Award in the Best Performance in a Supporting Role category for 180° (2010). The next year, she won the award for Best Actress for her role in Eine wen iig, dr Dällebach Kari [als]. In 2013, she was selected to receive the Shooting Star which is awarded annually to ten young European actors at the Berlin International Film Festival.[11] She also played the leading role in the 2013 film adaptation of Wetlands. This is arguably the role she is best known for. The novel it is based on was a controversial best seller in Germany.[12] To prepare for this role, Juri wore the clothes of her character, Helen, for several weeks and spent a lot of this time in Berlin, where her character lives.[8] She even went undercover as a student in a highschool where only the director of the school knew she was an actress.[12] She appeared in the Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049, as a designer of implanted memories for replicants.[13]
