Julie Pinson (born November 7, 1967 in Fremont, California) is a soap opera actress.
Pinson is best known as Dr. Eve Lambert Collins Thornhart on Port Charles, a role she played from the show's inception in 1997 until her character was killed off in 2002.
In early 2004, she played record producer Shiloh on The Young and the Restless, a role which lasted for four months.
In September 2004, Pinson debuted on Days of Our Lives in the role of Billie Reed when Lisa Rinna, who had originated the role, declined to return.
Pinson is often confused with Rinna, with whom she shares an uncanny resemblance.
In fact, when the Days of Our Lives producers were looking to bring back Billie Reed in 2002, the casting directors were quoted as saying that Pinson was their second choice in case Rinna decided to turn it down.
Rinna did return, but declined in 2004, opening the door for Pinson to take the role. In May 2008, she began a stint on As the World Turns.
