What do we know about Bellamy Young's early life?
Adopted at six weeks old, the future star was raised as Amy Maria Young. She chose "Bellamy" for her stage name as a tribute to her adoptive father's friend, Bill, who helped raise her after her adoptive father passed away.
“My first [adoptive] dad died when I was 15, and his best friend, Bill, did all the dad stuff with me, so I did a mushing of our names,” Bellamy told People in 2015. “I felt like I could get away with it because I’m Southern.”
In college, Bellamy studied English and theater at Yale University and graduated in 1991. She even attended a summer course at the British American Drama Academy in England during her college years.
Bellamy's career began in theater. In 1995, she took her first TV acting role on the NBC soap opera Another World, where she played Dr. Courtney Evans. And in 1997, she made her Broadway debut as Mary in the original cast of The Life on Broadway, another huge step for the then-budding star.
In the years that followed, Bellamy took on a variety of roles in some pretty famous productions. In addition to her well-known roles on Scandal, Scrubs, Criminal Minds, Prodigal Son, and, more recently, Promised Land, she has appeared in hit shows like The Drew Carey Show, The X Files, The West Wing, NCIS, Medium, Supernatural, Drop Dead Diva, Two and a Half Men, and many more.
