Bellwood was an original cast member of Dynasty in January 1981, and was written off the series early in the third season in late 1982. She appeared once in March 1983 to help usher in Jack Coleman as a recast Steven Carrington, and later returned full-time in October 1983.

Twenty years later in 2006, Bellwood appeared alongside her former Dynasty castmates in Dynasty Reunion:
