There are always actors who you recognize by face, but don’t necessarily know their name. These are the often the hardest working people in the business – and one such woman rising up the ranks is actress Melanie Haynes.
Not sure who she is? Well, Melanie has been working with some of the biggest names in the business.
On the big screen, Melanie joined the Marvel Universe, or at least her voice did, for the Oscar winning Best Animated Feature film, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” The Sony release crosses parallel dimensions and teams up with the Spider-Men of those dimensions to stop a threat to all reality. Melanie voiced the Brooklyn Visions Teacher along with A-listers Nicolas Cage, Hailee Steinfeld, Liev Schreiber, John Mulaney, Mahershala Ali, Lily Tomlin. She has been appearing indie films for years, including recently as the awkward Aunt Patty in the comedy “Antiquities,” starring Andrew J. West, Ashley Green, Mary Steenburgen and Michaela Watkins.
On the small screen, Melanie has been popping up everywhere. She is set to appear this week on the CBS hit “Young Sheldon,” dealing up big laughs in the episode titled ‘A Broken Heart and a Crock Monster.’ Earlier this year, she was seen opposite Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali in Season 3 of the critically-acclaimed HBO crime-drama “True Detective.” Her television credits also include roles in Lifetime’s TV movie “My Christmas Inn,” TruTV’s “Adam Ruins Everything,” ABC’s “The Middle,” WGN America’s “Salem,” and numerous others.
While you might not remember her name – yet – it’s clear that Melanie Haynes is definitely an actress you’ve already been watching.
