Sue Belinda Giblin (born 2 March 1950) is an Australian actress, prominent in soap operas.

Career[edit]

She was offered a scholarship to the Australian Ballet School when she was 17, but chose to study arts at the University of Sydney. Then she studied at the National Institute of Dramatic Art, before leaving after a year to practise her craft.[1]

She played Kay Webster in the risqué, satirical 1970s soap opera The Box, and the scheming Alison Carr in the 1980s melodrama Sons and Daughters. The Alison Carr character was revealed to be the post-plastic surgery incarnation of the show's original and much vaunted villain, 'Pat The Rat' – Patricia Hamilton, originally played by Rowena Wallace. Giblin was cast in the role because of her resemblance to Wallace.

Other television roles include appearances in The Sullivans, Alvin Purple (1976), Bluey (1976), Heartbreak High, Skyways, Home and Away and Good Guys, Bad Guys.

She in 2013, also guest starred in The Horizon, a gay shortform web-series on YouTube, as a Wilma (the drag queen's) mother.[2]
