SAG / AFTRA
Blaise Garrett Garza (born February 10, 1989) is an American actor and musician. He played the role of Gregory Hudson on Another World, a role he played from 1994 to 1996.
An interesting fact about the circumstances of Garza's hiring is that it was the first audition he had ever been on and he was picked for his great attitude and personality as well as his maturity for his age. He was subsequently placed as the son of John (David Forsyth) and Sharlene Hudson (Anna Kathryn Holbrook). He later appeared in various television commercials, and was the poster child for White House Juice, as "Jimmy Juice." After various commercials and industrials, Blaise was cast in his first feature film, Solitude Point, playing the grandson of Bo Svenson and Mitsuko Baisho. Blaise appeared in several more commercials before he was cast in his next feature film All Over the Guy where he played a young Tom (Richard Ruccolo).
Blaise is also an accomplished saxophonist. He has appeared as a guest soloist at Adam Gilberti's Genesis Concert with the Central Coast Philharmonia, at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, California. He regularly appears with the Violent Femmes performing on a variety of instruments: soprillo saxophone, sopranino saxophone, C-soprano saxophone, soprano saxophone, mezzo-soprano saxophone, alto saxophone, C melody saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, bass saxophone, Eb tubax, contrabass saxophone, and the Bb tubax. He is sometimes seen playing the slide-sax, straight alto sax, straight tenor sax, and, very rarely, the contrabass clarinet. He has also performed with legendary saxophonist and recent rock and roll hall of fame inductee Steve Mackay of The Stooges.
