Born Fairuza Alejandra Feldthouse on May 21, 1974, in Point Reyes, California, she rose from a fresh-faced little kid persona into a fully-fledged actress present both on the small and the big screen. Blue-eyed and dark-haired Balk started her acting career at the age of 11 when she weathered the storms of Oz in the Walt Disney's fantasy Return to Oz (1985). Sweet-faced child as she was, Balk went on to land sugary roles in TV movies. Next, she spent some time in Europe, where she was making films and landed a role as easily deflowered convent girl Cecile DeVolanges in Milos Forman's Valmont. By the time she turned 18, Balk had already got back to the US. There she earned widespread critical acclaim for her portrayal of Shade, a sensitive girl raised by her single mother in a dead-end New Mexico town, in Alison Anders' esteemed directorial debut Gas, Food, Lodging (1992). Appearing in subsequent TV and film projects, Balk acquired cult status with her lead part as a psychotic teenage witch in The Craft (1996). Trying to make use of the goth image fostered by her role in the film, Balk soon became the owner of Panpipes, a famed occult shop in Hollywood. However, she went into more mainstream territory playing Adam Sandler's girlfriend in the smash comedy The Waterboy (1998). Later that year Balk garnered plaudits starring as another girlfriend, this time in American History X (1998), which cast her as the love interest of a neo-Nazi. As the 2000's unfolded, she would continue to perform in movies like Almost Famous (2000), Wild Tigers I Have Known (2006), Humboldt County (2008) and Dose of Reality (2013).
