"Sister Julia, Child of God" was named after (and partially based upon) famed chef Julia Child.

Sister Julia, Child of God was not an actual part in the original Nunsense musical, which features just five female performers in the cast (Sister Mary Regina, Sister Mary Hubert, Sister Robert Anne, Sister Mary Leo and Sister Mary Amnesia). Sister Julia may have only been mentioned as an important "off-stage" character.

In an expanded version of the musical, known as Nunsense: The Megamusical, there are additional smaller speaking and singing parts aside from the core 5 nuns. One of these additional on-stage parts is that of Sister Julia, Child of God.
