25-year old actress Melanie Ward from Sydney is set to join many other talented Australian actors in Hollywood.
Over the years Melanie has made a big name for herself in Australia, gracing our TV screens in multiple TV shows, feature films, music videos, short films and stage productions.
Melanie was cast as a co-lead in an Australian horror movie called ‘Red Rabbit Lodge’ by Kevin Khachan, which is set for release this year. She also worked on other Australian feature films: ‘Drunk’ directed by Pete Cameron, ‘The System’ directed by Eddy Arya and ‘The Tail Job’ directed by Bryan Moses. Melanie played a supporting role on Wollongong comedian Frenchy’s comedy show on the ABC called ‘AZIO: The Bogan Spy Agency.’
Our home grown star’s talent is only met by her incredibly kind heart. Throughout the years, Melanie has used her talent and fame to inspire young people, engaging in free acting lessons in our local area. Melanie’s tenacity stems from her desire to instil confidence in children in the social and academic environment so that they can reach their full potential.
Melanie continues to perform in Los Angeles at ‘Groundlings’ the improvisation school that taught the likes of Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig. Melanie has said “there is so much competition in LA but Australians are definitely making their mark.”
