On the 18th of April, 1976, one Melissa Joan Hart decided to burst her way into this very world! This very exciting event, had occurred in Sayville, Long Island, New York, United States of America. Ever since that very momentus occasion, Melissa was destined to be an actress, and as going to be pointed out futher on, a spectacular one, with humble beginnings from television commercials, to film.
Since 1980, Melissa has been enlightening our lives, through all forms of the media, commercials, television, tele-movies, mini-series, films, magazines, newspapers and so forth... Melissa' Career had started out with commercials, with the first one been the Splashy Bath commercial, and before she turned 5 years of age (1981), the young Melissa Joan Hart, had done over 25 commercials! .
One of Melissa's first appearences on a TV show, was doing a skit for Saturday Night Live. Melissa ended up doing several appearences for Saturday Night Live during 1985 - 1986. Also at this time Melissa has been on the Equalizer, made an appearence in Christmas Snow abd also in the mini series Kane and Abel. Also Melissa was destined to make her debut in film, Crocodile Dundee (woohoo, an Aussie movie), but when they did the final editing, they thought the movie was too long, and so they cut out several parts, one of the parts was with Melissa in.
By the late 1980's, Melissa had started to do some theatre work, and one of the plays she was in was on Broadway, which is quite a feat. After this, Melissa had auditioned for the role of Clarissa Explains It All, and succeded in achieving this role, and so the saga continues...
By now, Melissa is starting to break barriers, as this is one of the first Nickelodeon TV shows to feature a female for a lead character. This in it self is a big accomplishment, because, ever since Clarissa Explains It All, there have been many other succesful Nick TV shows, with female lead characters, ie The Secret World of Alex Mack.
But getting on track, Clarissa Explains It All, had influenced a great many of people for all around the world, (soon, the whole world will come under the domination of Melissa, whoops, shouldn't give away her plans, ahem...), no, seriously, even today, after the series had finished, 'Clarissa Explains It All' is still been aired around the world. A tribute to the success of the show...
Shortly after 'Clarissa Explains It All', Melissa had graduated high school, and had enrolled in University of New York. Melissa had planned to go onto university, as she knew she may need it further on. However, shortly after this, Melissa landed the role as 'Sabrina' in the Showtime movie, 'Sabrina The Teenage Witch'. Also during this time, Melissa had guest starred in Touched By An Angel, where she played a teenager having troubles with her single mother. Also she had done 'Twisted Desire', in which, lets just say, was a very adult type of role. During this time, Melissa has made frequent appearences in late night shows, magazines, radio and so forth. One notable appearence in a magazine has been the 1997 issue of Details. Lets just say, it was definitly different... Melissa has been in several movies during this time. Melissa continues to write an advice column for the popular teen magazine.
