Bellamy Young (born as Amy Young) grew up in the mountains of Asheville North Carolina. After participating in pageants and more as she grew up, she went on to earn a BA from Yale University in a double major of English and Theater Studies and then spent a semester studying at Oxford University in England.
After graduation, she moved to New York City and began a decade in the theater doing national tours (Meet Me in St Louis, My Fair Lady), regional (Randy Newman’s Faust, Book of Days, Martin Guerre), off Broadway (Merrily We Roll Along, Poe), and Broadway (The Life).
Bellamy later moved to Los Angeles and began working exclusively in TV and Film. Her long list of credits includes hit TV shows (CSI:Miami, Scrubs, ER, Grey’s Anatomy, Cold Case, Dirty Sexy Money, Law and Order:LA, Lie to Me, Two and a Half Men, United States of Tara) to film (Mission Impossible: 3, We were Soldiers) to indies (Larceny, Mission, Black and White, In My Sleep). She also starred as Kit in Lifetime’s tv film ‘The Night Stalker’ and soon you’ll see her in ‘Offer and Compromise’, ‘Bernard and Huey’ and an exciting small role in Disney’s ‘A Wrinkle of Time.’
You can now watch her on ABC’s hit drama, ‘Scandal’, where she brilliantly portrays Mellie Grant, a former First Lady turned President of the United States.
Bellamy also devotes her heart and time to several charities/campaigns such as the Human Society, PETA, I Stand with Immigrants and many more. She also campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential election.
In May 2015, she released her debut album which features covers of some of her favorite songs. You can download her album on iTunes and you can also stream it on Spotify.
