Julie Andrews’ granddaughter, Hope Hamilton, is a skilled stage actor and also a weightlifter! She’s following very closely in her grandmother’s footsteps as she has become a pretty seasoned stage performer, who recently wrapped up her run in the ensemble for the production of Camelot in Sag Harbor, New York at the Bay Street Theater.

She was born to Emma Walton Hamilton and Stephen Hamilton, who are the founders of Bay Street Theater and serve as co-artistic director and executive director. Hope’s role in Camelot has a great deal of meaning in the family, as Andrews herself played the role of Queen Guenevere in the 1960 Broadway production of Camelot. As predicted, Andrews was absolutely thrilled to see her granddaughter perform in the same show.

“She came on opening night,” Hope told the Sag Harbor Express. “She loved it. She has always been super supportive of me, but this one is extra special because now we can share our experiences and compare them.”

Hope is now a rising senior at the Ross School in East Hampton, New York, and hopes to major in musical theater and English when she gets to college. In high school, she’s been very involved in the theater program there and has performed in shows like AnnieFame!Alice in Wonderland, and Julius Caesar.

As aforementioned, Hope is also a skilled weightlifter. This is something she began taking on more seriously in 2020. “As someone who’s struggled all my life with feeling different, there’s a unique emotional component that comes when weightlifting that makes me feel powerful, physically equal to my peers. Something that I have never felt before,” she says. “I have become more accepting of myself and immensely proud of myself. I found a passion in lifting, and while it’s still a work in progress, I know that I can really find self love in doing this work.”
