Balthazar Getty’s Great-grandfather John Paul Getty Founded Getty Oil, Balthazar Getty’s Great-Grandfather John Paul Getty Founded Getty Oil, Balthazar Getty sienna miller scandal–Balthazar Getty born January 22, 1975 is an American film actor. A promising young actor noted for his worldly demeanor and an eye tic, Balthazar Getty exploded onto the scene as Ralph in Harry Hook’s 1990 remake of “Lord of the Flies.” The great-grandson of oil tycoon J Paul Getty, the then-13-year-old was attending Los Angeles’ Bel Air Prep when casting agents visited in search of young talent and discovered him.
His harrowing intensity as the cadet leader who refused to descend into the savagery of his shipwrecked schoolmates earned him raves and a host of follow-up opportunities.
Since “Flies,” he has grown up in the business, holding his own alongside Christian Slater, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips and Emilio Estevez in “Young Guns II” (1990), mentoring under the veteran but paternal Ben Johnson in “My Her s Have Always Been Cowboys” (1991) and working with the likes of Oliver Stone in 1994′s “Natural Born Killers” as a gas station attendant seduced and murdered by Juliette Lewis), Sylvester Stallone (as a cadet in “Judge Dredd” 1995) and Ridley Scott (as one of the students in “White Squall” 1996). “December” (1991), in which he was Wil Wheaton’s younger brother who wanted to enlist and fight in WWII, gave Getty his first chance to work almost entirely on a set while “Where the Day Takes You” (1992) afforded him the opportunity to expand his range as an actor by playing a street kid living on Hollywood Boulevard.
