Blaise Garrett Garza (born February 10, 1989) is an American actor and musician. He played the role of Gregory Hudson on Another World, a role he played from 1994 to 1996.

An interesting fact about the circumstances of Garza's hiring is that it was the first audition he had ever been on and he was picked for his great attitude and personality as well as his maturity for his age. He was subsequently placed as the son of John (David Forsyth) and Sharlene Hudson (Anna Kathryn Holbrook). He later appeared in various television commercials, and was the poster child for White House Juice, as "Jimmy Juice." After various commercials and industrials, Blaise was cast in his first feature film, Solitude Point, playing the grandson of Bo Svenson and Mitsuko Baisho. Blaise appeared in several more commercials before he was cast in his next feature film All Over the Guy where he played a young Tom (Richard Ruccolo). Blaise has since appeared in Drillbit Taylor.

Blaise is also an accomplished saxophonist. He appeared as a guest soloist at Adam Gilberti's Genesis Concert with the Central Coast Philharmonia, at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, California. Blaise toured the west coast with the Violent Femmes and legendary saxophonist Steve Mackay of The Stooges from 2004-2007 performing on a variety of saxophones and instruments including: soprillo saxophone, sopranino saxophone, C soprano saxophone, soprano saxophone, mezzo-soprano saxophone, alto saxophone, C melody saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, bass saxophone, tubax, and contrabass saxophone as well as the slide-sax, straight alto sax, straight tenor sax, contrabass clarinet, and native american flute. Blaise also toured with reggae band Rebelution on their "Peace of Mind Tour."

Blaise' father is a decorated F-18D Hornet pilot and a retired Major of the United States Marine Corps.
