Mekenna Melvin

Born and raised in Saratoga, CA, Mekenna Melvin spent most of her childhood in her mother’s drama classes and rehearsals. Thus, Mekenna gives her mom, a drama teacher and director, credit for igniting Mekenna’s interest in acting. After high school, Mekenna moved to New York City and studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and in between semesters spent a summer studying in England at The British American Drama Academy, Midsummer in Oxford Program. As a child with a learning disability, Mekenna had always felt ‘different’ but acting she recalls, was one of the things in (her) life that seemed to make sense.””
