Melinda

From X-Men: rEvolution
''Call Time in Fifteen''
Introduction

xxxxxOpinionated and sincere, Melinda Chylds is the kind of leading lady that may take some getting used to. She isn't shy, per se, but she doesn't always know exactly how to approach each new person or situation. She tends to stand back and observe until her natural exuberance nudges her toward action. Her manner is abrupt and genuine, with tendencies toward hyperbole. Quite often she has the misfortune of being stuck in her own head, but only until she opens her mouth, expresses herself and receives feedback.

History

xxxxxMelinda has two parents, one sister and a cat, all of whom reside in suburbia Ohio. Mel made her way to NYC after high school to attend college and pursue a career in Broadway. She found herself taking more to serving drinks as a barista, than standing in lines at cast calls and hoping. Her time in New York began to revolve more around her part time jobs, night life, and roommates rather than her supposed career. Her dreams met new competition when she started volunteering at a soup kitchen and food shelter on the weekends.

xxxxxIt was then that Mel started falling in with new friends, ones that challenged her to greater acts of service and activism and ones that introduced her to movers and shakers in the theater world. Around the same time that she became indispensable at the Montague Café, she also began landing parts in off-Broadway shows. Her first lead was secured in a revival of The Unsinkable Molly Brown, followed soon after by a genderqueer rendition of Guys and Dolls. Her performances were curtailed by the Covid-19 Pandemic, bringing her back to Montagues, her passion for roasting beans, and a new title of owner/manager.
