Belinda J. Montgomery (born July 23, 1950) is a Canadian-American actress, writer, and painter. She initially attracted notice for her starring role in the 1970s science-fiction series Man from Atlantis as Dr. Elizabeth Merrill and also for her recurring role as Caroline Crockett/Ballard in the 1980s cop series Miami Vice. However, she is perhaps best known for her role as matriarch Katherine Howser in the ABC medical comedy-drama Doogie Howser, M.D..

Life and career[edit]

Montgomery was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.[1]

Montgomery has made over 80 guest appearances on television shows, including Ironside ("Little Dog Gone", 1970), Dynasty, L.A. Law, JAG, and Ghost Whisperer, among other series.[1]

Before pursuing an acting career, Montgomery was a watercolor painter. She sold her first art piece at the age of ten.[2] She continues to paint along with acting. Many of her art pieces are featured on her official website.

In March 2013, writing under the pen name B. Montgomery, Belinda submitted a short story "St. Patrick of the Pineapple" to Midlife Collage, an online writing contest. Montgomery's story won first-place in the contest.[3]
