Bellamy attended Asheville High School, and matriculated in 1987. Afterwards, she attended Yale University and initially studied Physics, eventually transitioning to study English and Theatre.

She graduated in 1991, and then spent a summer at the British American Drama Academy located in England. When joining the Screen Actors Guild, she changed her name from Amy Maria to Bellamy due to someone else being registered with the same name.

In the early 1990s, Young began by appearing in several Broadway productions, including “Merrily We Roll Along” and “Faust”. In 1995 she made her television debut as a part of the soap opera “Another World”, in which she had a recurring role. Soon more opportunities would come her way to help increase her net worth – she had a guest appearance in “Law & Order” before making her film debut with a support role in “Black and White”. She then starred in several independent films, before in the 2000s appearing more on television, mostly as a guest in popular series which included “The X Files”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Two and a Half Men”, “Supernatural” and “Frasier”. In 2003, she became a regular cast member in the series “Peacemakers”, which was short lived, but then continued to take recurring roles in such as “CSI: Miami”, “Scrubs” and “Criminal Minds”. She also had consistent film work, with supporting roles in “Mission: Impossible III” and “We Were Soldiers”.

In 2011, Bellamy was cast as the First Lady in the television series “Scandal”, which was a recurring role which became regular after the first series, and received critical acclaim for her performance; her net worth increased even further, and she would win a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. In 2015, she released an album entitled “Far Away So Close” which featured covers of various popular songs. The following year, she then appeared in films such as “A Wrinkle in Time”, “The Night Stalker”, and “Bernard and Huey”. One of her latest projects is, “False Profits” which she is cast as the lead for the pilot.

For her personal life, it is known that Young is in a relationship with actor Edward Weeks. She previously had a relationship with Joshua Leonard which lasted from 2000 to 2002. She has been suffering from migraines since she was young, and has partnered with GlaxoSmithKline to spread migraine awareness, and she is also a vegan. She also does a lot of philanthropic work, and has participated in a PETA campaign. She is also the honorary chair for Helpmate which is a domestic violence nonprofit organization, helping victims of domestic violence.

#Quote
1Jackie O was so capable in so many ways. Hillary tried to redefine the role when she got into public policy, and Michelle Obama is able to move smoothly between form and function, style and substance.
2The First Lady is such a fascinating office to hold. You're not elected, but it's very much official. You can see the latitude of power of that office.
3With Yale, my world got so big all of a sudden. At school, if you could dream it, someone would make it so that you could do it. It was magical. I had a lot going on, as you do when you're 17, and didn't necessarily capitalize on all of it, but it made me see possibility in a way that I hadn't before.
4When you guest-star, you're usually at the center of the dramatic arc, so that's fun.
5I did love Dirty Sexy Money (2007) quite a lot. I loved my tenure at Scrubs (2001) quite a lot. ER (1994) might have been my favorite guest star thing. We Were Soldiers (2002) meant a lot to me.
6I started singing when I was about 3 and dancing soon after. Mom just started looking for outlets where I could perform and availed herself of any opportunity she could in the mountains of North Carolina in the '70s.
7I think you choose how you walk through this life. I think if you choose to participate in a paradigm that is looks-based, if you're an actor, then it can be empowering in some ways, and it can be really limiting in some ways in terms of time and longevity.
8I used to be so hard on myself. So hard on myself. Just my own worst critic to the nth degree. Absolutely undermining my confidence in every moment. Bad tape in my head all the time.
9My dad used to say, 'Just be yourself and you'll be fine,' but it's really, really true.
10I am a fosterer of animals.
11I miss singing. I did Broadway forever.
12I want to find a man and have a family.
13I'd love to go back and do theater. There's nothing like that instant response and the connection to a live audience.
14I'm blessed because I had my mom as a teacher - sixth through eighth grade - and she is one of the best teachers I've ever had.
15If I could have anyone's mind for a day, I really can't think of anyone other than Einstein.
16It's a lot of fun to just say to people, proudly, 'I get to play the First Lady.' It's just fun to say.
17Michelle Obama blows my mind. Form and function, style and grace.
18'Notorious' is a masterwork. I can watch it every day.
