Belinda Bauer (born Belinda Sylvia Taubman; 13 June 1950) is a retired Australian actress and working psychologist whose film career spanned the 1980s and 1990s. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
Bauer's family managed Taubman Paints, a paint manufacturing company. She competed as Belinda Taubman in several beauty contests in Sydney, Australia. Starting her career as a ballet dancer, actress and then later working as a model in New York, Bauer became popular in several American cult films of the late 1970s and 1980s, including Winter Kills, Success, Timerider: The Adventure of Lyle Swann and Flashdance. Between television work, she also appeared in the films The Rosary Murders and RoboCop 2.
Bauer's main title roles were in the television films The Sins of Dorian Gray (1983) (a rendition of the Oscar Wilde novel The Picture of Dorian Gray); a live-action Rankin/Bass production called Starcrossed (1985), in which she played an alien woman living on Earth; and as Christine Scavello in the supernatural thriller Dean R. Koontz's Servants of Twilight (1991). She also appeared in the pilot of the television series Airwolf (1984) as Gabrielle Ademaur, the love interest for Stringfellow Hawke (Jan-Michael Vincent); her character is killed near the end of the story. Her last credited appearance was in the erotic thriller Poison Ivy II: Lily (1996).
Her portrayals of hard, vindictive women (including Delilah in the television film Samson and Delilah (1984)) resulted in constant typecasting, which may have contributed to the fading away of her career in the mid-1990s. She presently resides in Los Angeles, California, where she works as a psychologist.
