One of Cult TV's Presenters and Interviewers ...


Since graduating from the Academy Drama School in Whitechapel, Melissa has become a "Jack of all Trades", her activities include puppetering and costume character work.

She is no stranger to Cult TV programmes, and as a child enjoyed Doctor Who from behind the sofa, in order to escape detection by the Daleks, as any well-adjusted child would, past or present! Overcoming her fear, she has recently appeared in a Doctor Who episode herself (the new season two opener, "New Earth"), and is proud of being partly responsible for giving a whole new generation of children the thrill of peeking through their fingers in terror.

Other television appearances include Casualty, Midsommer Murders, Holby City, Judge John Deed, London's Burning and Born and Bred (an episode that featured Richard Wilson).

Melissa is equally at home on the stage - performing in front of a live audience - as she is on TV. Recent theatre credits include an appearance as a maid in "Don Giovanni" at the Royal Opera House, and her hand has appeared as both Sooty and Sweep on several of their theatre tours (puppeteering, of course!). Incidentally, she even featured as Postman Pat on Jim Davidson's Generation Game!

Although acting is her first love, Melissa's interests have always been diverse, and include synchronised swimming and weight lifting, even becoming British Junior Olympic Weight Lifting Champion.

Presenting for Cult TV is another exciting departure for Melissa, and we were delighted to have her inside track of the acting business to held shed new light on our celebrity guests in 2006 and 2007.
