Balthazar attended Gordonstoun, a boarding school well known for being the school of most of the British Royal Family. His father was a documentary filmmaker and photographer, who may have influenced his interest in films. During 1989 at the age of 14, Getty auditioned for the lead role of a remake of the film “Lord of the Flies”, to which he was invited after he was noticed by the casting director of the movie. Interestingly, his character’s injury in the film was written in after he had fallen from a tree in an accident. He then continued his work in films, appearing in “Natural Born Killers”, “Judge Dredd”, “Deuces Wild”, “Feast”, and many more. Getty also became a part of “Traffic” which was a television miniseries. He became more widely known in television after guesting in the series “Charmed” as the character Richard Montana. Prior to this appearance, he was part of the short-lived “Pasadena”. He then became part of “Alias” during the fifth and final season as Thomas Grace. After “Alias”, Balthazar and Ron Rifkin became part of the drama “Brothers & Sisters” which started airing in 2006, in which Getty played the role of Tommy Walker, one of the Walker siblings in the series. He stayed with the show as a regular cast member until 2008 when it was reported that he would not be renewed a full-time contract. He instead became a recurring cast-member until the show’s eventual cancellation, but his net worth increased steadily.

Getty started his work as a musician sometime in 2005, becoming a part of the indie electronic band Ringside: their album was released in the same year. They are said to be working on a second album, and while that has yet to be released, Getty continues to guest in series such as “Hawaii Five-O”.

Balthazar is also known to be a part of the board of directors for The Lunchbox Fund, a non-profit organization that aims to give food to students in Soweto, South Africa.

For his personal life, it is known that Balthazar married Rosetta Millington, a fashion designer, in 2000, and they have three children and a son. Getty was also put into the spotlight because of his affair with actress Sienna Miller, which eventually ended when he returned to his wife.

1(On being a famous Getty) I didn't get teased much about it in school, because it was a slightly older generation who knew about it. I really didn't know what it was to be a Getty. I had a pretty modest upbringing.
