Melissa Sagemiller Profile

Born into a political family, Melissa Sagemiller started her path in the performing arts at a very young age. At age three she began to study dance: tap, ballet, jazz and modern. After responding to an ad in the Washington Post, Melissa made her stage debut at 9 as Dill in To Kill a Mockingbird. Soon she became a regular on local DC stages. Acting took a back seat when Eileen Ford discovered Melissa in a Manhattan jewelry store at the age of 14. Modeling took her to New York and Paris. Soon thereafter she left Paris and followed through with her initial desire to go to The University of Virginia and resume a "normal" student life studying Art History. When Melissa decided to return to acting full time, she began studying at The Stella Adler Conservatory, NYU's Stonestreet Studio, and at the Michael Howard Studio. Her professional life as an actor began shortly thereafter.

American Sagemiller had little interest in following in the footsteps of her political family. By the time she was three, she was studing tap, ballet, jazz and modern dance. At the age of nine, she responded to an ad in the Washington Post to play Dill in a stage production of To Kill a Mockingbird and before she knew it, she was making her stage debut. Other roles followed, including roles in A-Musing Woman, The Three Sisters, The Miss Firecracker Contest, Archaic Language, Leader of the Pack and Joy.

When she was 14, she was discovered in a Manhattan jewellery story and hired by Eileen Ford to be a model. Although her modeling career kept her from the stage, she did get the chance to travel to places like Paris.

With a career well underway, Sagemiller desired a more "normal" life, and left Paris to attend The University of Virginia to study Art History. Deciding to take on acting fulltime, she started studying the art at The Stella Adler Conservatory, NYU's Stonestreet Studio, and at the Michael Howard Studio.

With experience and education under her belt, she had no difficulty getting started on her screen career with bit parts in such series as Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Spin City, Another World, As the World Turns and Apt.2F.

In 2001, she made her feature film debut with a major role in Get Over It playing Allison. Her next role was the lead character Cassie in the scary/thriller Soul Survivors.
