Cover picture for the article“Jimmy, honey, did you get my froyo? Pistachio. Thanks, sweetie.”. With those 10 words and a sly delivery, Melinda Clarke turned a guest star appearance as a self-described gold-digging Orange County housewife into one of the most compelling series regulars on The O.C. As Julie Cooper (or Julie Cooper Nichol depending on what season you’re on), Clarke wove a complex web of schemes, intrigue, and grifting, creating a character that was sometimes horrible, sometimes endearing, but always — truly, always — interesting.
