Fairuza Balk, one of the horror genre’s darlings as well as favorite Goth girl, has made her impact with selective roles over the years, that while garnering wide attention from the film “The Craft”, has been in a impressive range of roles. While many may not realize that Fairuza got a really early start with 1985’s Return to Oz paying Dorothy Gale, it was the role of Nancy Downs in “The Craft” that most would associate her unique dark look with. A classic film now and cult favorite, “The Craft” was the film that launched Balk’s career into further roles including 1996’s “The Island of Dr. Moreau” as character Aissa and “American History X” as Stacey.
Fairuza Balk’s range of films suggested that she was not content just to take stereotypical Goth girl roles as she experimented with films like the comedy, “The Waterboy”, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans”, and 2000’s “Almost Famous” (where she played a rock and roll groupie).
Other roles such as her character role of Gretchen Van Buren (Red Letters) took things more into a thriller, dramatic direction while still finding time to take on the occasional weird culty film such as Crispin Glover’s “What Is It?” (don’t ask, it was a absurdly odd piece that never got release)
Comedy drama’s like “Humboldt County” would further expand her acting resume though it was apparent that the industry still hungered for her darkly attractive looks to take on more horror roles.
Many would say that Fairuza Balk had purposely reduced her career opportunities by taking less roles over the years, avoiding the occasional “ask” to play the horror victim or edgy angry character though fans find her acting approach and presence identifiable as a perfect fit for these kind of films. None-the-less Balk has kept herself busy with the occasional TV appearance and her movement towards music.
