Melissa Joan Hart - Biography

 

Melissa Joan Catherine Hart (born April 18, 1976) is an American actress, writer, television director, television producer, singer and businesswoman best known for her title roles in the television series Clarissa Explains It All and the live action version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch (1996–2003).

Hart was born in Smithtown, New York, on Long Island, the daughter of Paula, a producer and talent manager, and William Hart, a shellfish purveyor, clam hatchery worker, and entrepreneur. Hart grew up in Sayville, New York. Her stepfather (since 1994) is television executive Leslie Gilliams, and her stepmother is Lisa Hart. Hart was named after the Allman Brothers song "Melissa", while her middle name, Joan, came from her maternal grandmother. Hart chose Catherine as her confirmation name when she was in the eighth grade.
Hart has six sisters, and one brother, all younger than she. Sisters Trisha, Elizabeth and Emily Anne, brother Brian, and half-sisters Alexandra Hart-Gilliams and Samantha Hart have all acted. Her half-sister, Mackenzie Hart, is not in show business.

Hart's career began at age three, when she made a television commercial for a bathtub doll called 'Splashy'. From then on, she appeared regularly in commercials, making 25 of them before the age of five. Other early television work included a small role in the miniseries Kane & Abel in 1985, a guest-starring role in an episode of The Equalizer in 1986, and a starring role alongside Katherine Helmond in the Emmy Award-winning TV movie Christmas Snow, also in 1986. She also auditioned for the lead role Jamie Lloyd in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, losing the role to American actress Danielle Harris.
In 1989, she auditioned for a Broadway production of The Crucible starring Martin Sheen, becoming an understudy to three of the young girls in the play. This paved the way for her to land the title role in the TV show Clarissa Explains It All. The Nickelodeon series, a comedy about a teen girl in everyday situations, became a big hit during its four-year run. The show made her a household name among American teenagers and brought her four consecutive Young Artist Award nominations, of which she won three. Her role in the series also led to her starring in the FMV video game Nickelodeon's Director's Lab as a tour guide that takes the player around a movie studio.
Hart also recorded two albums as Clarissa, This is What 'Na Na' Means and a recording of Peter and the Wolf (Sony Classical SK 64079). The first record, a rock/pop album in the style of a garage band, did not receive much attention from critics or the public; and the second album won a Parents' Choice award.
After the television series was canceled, Hart attended New York University. She did not complete her degree, however, since she soon resumed her acting career when she got the title role for the 1996 TV movie Sabrina the Teenage Witch on Showtime. This was followed by the television series of the same name which lasted seven seasons on ABC and The WB; she later collaborated on an animated version that featured Melissa voicing the two aunts Hilda and Zelda while sister Emily starred in the title role. In between, she also guest-starred on the series Touched by an Angel and starred in several TV movies.
In 1998, Hart landed a small part in the movie Can't Hardly Wait, and then started filming Next to You, starring alongside Adrian Grenier. Hart asked friend Britney Spears to do a remix of her song "(You Drive Me) Crazy" and add it to the movie's soundtrack. To capitalize on the song's success as a top-ten hit, the title of the movie was changed to Drive Me Crazy and Hart joined Spears in the music video for that song. Around the same time Spears also did a guest role, playing herself, on an episode of Sabrina.
Hart appeared in lingerie in a series of photographs and accompanying article featured in the October 1999 issue of the men's magazine Maxim. Hart continued her acting career in the 2000s. Her work included the film Rent Control, which was produced in 2002 and later aired in 2005 on the ABC Family cable network. Hart continued her role on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, which finished in 2003, and also performed several voice-over roles for animation.
In 1999, Hart made her directorial debut in an episode of Disney Channel's So Weird called "Snapshot" which starred her sister, Emily Anne. She later directed an episode of Nickelodeon's Taina in 2001. In 2001-2002, she directed 6 episodes of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, including the season finale. In 2005, Hart directed her first movie, a 15-minute live-action short called Mute, starring her sister Emily.
Hart guest-starred on an episode of Law & Order: SVU that aired on October 9, 2007 titled "Impulsive" as a teacher accused of statutory rape. In late 2007, she directed the "Anger Cage" video for her husband Mark Wilkerson's band Course of Nature. She also starred in the ABC Family Original Movie Holiday in Handcuffs, opposite Mario Lopez. The movie premiered on December 9, 2007, and was the highest rated program in the history of the network, with 6.7 million viewers. Hart followed this with another ABC movie with a similar premise, My Fake Fiance, in 2009.
In March 2009, Hart opened a candy shop called SweetHarts in Sherman Oaks, California. Hart commented that it had been her "childhood dream" to own a candy shop.
It was announced on August 17, 2009 that she would compete in season 9 of Dancing with the Stars. She was paired up with two-time reigning champion, Mark Ballas. On October 27, Melissa was eliminated from the competition, finishing ninth out of sixteen. In 2010, Hart will return to sitcoms, starring with Joey Lawrence in a new sitcom, Melissa & Joey, scheduled to air on ABC Family in the summer. Hart will play a woman who hires Lawrence as a nanny to help care for her incarcerated sister's kids.

On July 19, 2003, Hart married musician Mark Wilkerson. The preparations for the ceremony, which took place in Florence, Italy, were documented in a TV miniseries titled Tying the Knot, produced by Hart's production company, Hartbreak Films. Hart and Wilkerson have two sons: Mason Walter Wilkerson, who was born on January 11, 2006 weighing 9lbs; and Braydon "Brady" Hart Wilkerson, born on March 12, 2008, weighing 7lbs, 3oz. Both boys were born in Los Angeles, California.
Hart and Wilkerson were featured in People magazine's April 7, 2008 issue, introducing Braydon to the world. Hart wrote a diary, including video entries, to document potty training her son, Mason, for Pull-Ups brand diapers.

 

Melissa Joan Hart - Personal Quotes

 

(Discussing Playboy): If they could promise me it wasn't camera-between-my-knees kind of shots, I would do it. I would do topless. I think it's empowering. Though if my mother had a real big problem with it, I'd have to say no right now.

(on her personality) "I'm a pretty open person. Like, if I have good sex, then the next day I'm going to tell everyone I know about it."
