  Biography  

 early life
Getty was born Paul Balthazar Getty in Tarzana, California, and raised in San Francisco before being sent to private school in the United Kingdom, where he was enrolled at Gordonstoun School, a boarding school that has educated three generations of the British Royal Family. His great-grandfather was Jean Paul Getty, founder of the Getty Oil Company, and at one time one of the richest men in the world. His grandfather was Sir Paul Getty; his father was John Paul Getty III; his mother, Gisela Martine Getty (née Schmidt), is a professional photographer and documentary filmmaker. His parents divorced in 1993. Getty has a maternal half-sister, Anna .

 career
Getty entered the movie business in 1987 when he auditioned for the lead role in the movie Lord of the Flies after being spotted by a talent scout in his art class at school. During the course of the 1990s and early 2000s, he has appeared in films such as Young Guns II, Natural Born Killers, Judge Dredd, White Squall, Lost Highway, Big City Blues, The Center of the World, Deuces Wild, Ladder 49, Feast and the television series Traffic.

Getty guest-starred on the television series Charmed as Richard Montana, a male witch who at one point was romantically linked with Paige Matthews. He appeared in the fifth season of the hit show Alias as Agent Thomas Grace. He starred, alongside Alias costar Ron Rifkin, in the ABC prime time drama Brothers & Sisters, which first aired in September 2006. Getty played the role of Thomas "Tommy" Walker, second-born of the five Walker siblings.

In late 2008, it was reported that Getty's contract as a full-time series regular would not be renewed due, in part, to budgetary and storyline considerations, though Getty might return in a reduced capacity. On the Season 4 premiere, Balthazar Getty was still listed in the principal cast, but he did not appear. Getty made his return to the series in the sixth episode of Season 4. Although he no longer appeared in every episode, he continued to make appearances on the show.

 personal life
In 2000, Getty married fashion designer Rosetta Millington. They have four children, a son, Cassius Paul, and three daughters: Grace, Violet, and June Catherine.
