Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mela knew she was destined to be on stage performing or in front of the camera and began acting when she was 9 years old performing in one of the most important theaters in the world, Teatro Colón. A few years later she landed her first lead role in Disney’s popular Argentina show “Jake & Blake” and soon became Argentina’s most popular Disney star.
Once her Disney career in Argentina took off, she began booking many commercials and even became the face for State Farm in Argentina. The Latina and Hispanic actress moved to Los Angeles in 2014 where she booked a role in A+E’s high-rated show “Longmire” and continue to grow her career and art with singing, acting and even voiceover work in SUICIDE SQUAD.
When Mela isn’t busy in front of the camera, she loves working on her singing and songwriting as she is working on her first album. Mela is also a fierce advocate for animals, environmental issues, and homelessness.
