Melody Thomas Scott
Melody Thomas Scott has been a working actress since the age of three. Under the tutelage of Ethel Meglin, who was instrumental in starting Shirley Temple's career, Melody was chosen to be the youngest member of what ultimately became Mrs. Meglins last professional group, The Meglin Kiddies. Acting, singing, tap dancing, ballet, jazz were but a few of the skills that the performing troupe was highly trained in. She also was part of the Hollywood Childrens Theater and the Three Arts Studio for many years. Through both the Meglin Kiddies and the Three Arts Studio, Melody performed in countless stage productions for the U.S.O. and many other charities and venues including the historical Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Local Los Angeles television shows, professional modeling, (she was a student of the Caroline Leonetti Modeling Academy,) theater productions, etc. kept this youngster quite busy. Early theater productions include "Heidi", "The Bad Seed", "Bye Bye Birdie", and as the young Alma in "Summer and Smoke." Having shot many commercials (Plochman's Mustard, Clorox Bleach, Scott Tissue, etc.) by the age of six, Melody landed her first national commercial, as the sleepy breakfaster at the kitchen table for "Kelloggs Rice Krispies."
