Californian Belinda Balaski began working at age five.  She has starred in many feature films; movies of the week; commercials; guest starred in dozens of TV shows. She starred in an Emmy winning After School Special, "The Runaways." Belinda received two Emmy submissions for "Are You My Mother" with Michael York and "Proud Men" with Charlton Heston and Peter Strauss. Her theatre expertise earned her the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award, and two Robbies. Don Knotts, Nick Nolte, Charleton Heston, and Cloris Leachman are some of the famous actors Belinda has starred along side of throughout her impressive career. Balaski's more memorable roles include the hilariously made-for-TV hoot "The Werewolf of Woodstock" with Andy Stevens, and Lynda Carter's sweet best gal pal in her first film "Bobbie Joe & The Outlaw," an imperiled pregnant woman with Marjoe Gortner in H. G. Well's "The Food of the Gods," along with Robert Carradine's surfer girl in the cross country road race romp "Cannonball." Belinda has starred in a dozen Joe Dante films such as a summer camp counselor in "Piranha," a spunky go-getter News Producer in the now classic "The Howling," a roasting wife in "Amazon Women on the Moon," and a harried working class mother in the wonderfully raucous "Gremlins I & II." In the late 80's Belinda created BB's Kids Acting School where she teaches both kids, teenagers, and adults in theatrical, commercial and musical workshops; passing on the knowledge she has acquired throughout her four decades in the entertainment industry. Balaski also wrote and produced "The T-Files," with her more advanced teens, which has had three very successful theatrical productions in Hollywood! Belinda also created and ran the Drama Dept in a private school for children with autism/aspergers for the past 3 years.
