Noir-thing to worry about when this fine actor is included. Belinda Giblin (b. 1950), grew up in Tamworth, where her parents were involved in amateur theatre. Though academically confident, she wanted to be an actor, and proceeded from the University of Sydney to NIDA. In the early 1970s she appeared in two episodes of the Hector Crawford production Matlock Police, which led to her casting in a regular role in The Box (1973-1977) and parts in various other Crawford shows. Billed fourth after Jack Thompson, Jacki Weaver and Wendy Hughes in the R-rated Petersen in 1974, she donned plunging attire for Alvin Purple (1976). For some years in the mid-1980s, she was a shoulder-padded star of the Reg Grundy hit show Sons and Daughters. Having worked for some years as a public-speaking coach and corporate trainer, in 2015-2016 she took to the Sydney and Melbourne stage in Blonde Poison, playing a Jewish woman blackmailed into collusion with Nazis. She returned to Australian television in 2019 on Home and Away. Belinda Giblin by Stuart Campbell is part of the #InCanberra project.
