I recently contacted Fox
Kids Europe and they were kind enough to send me a Press
Kit for PR:iS. Sadly no pics of Mel were included, so I made my own!
The whole thing is up in a special directory; for those interested just

Correction! The number given for Hymson-Ayer Entertainment is
no longer valid. It's been removed from the Resume
However, Abrams Artists Agency is totally good! I called both
numbers today and the nice people at AAA confirmed that they are her Management
and they will forward fan mail to her! For more info on contacting Mel,
check out the Contact Mel Page.
September 18, 2001
Big thanks go out to Brandon S. Mohr the winner of the ebay

reume; and they are up now in their respective sections. They are also
in the Gallery. Also, the July news
on this page has been archived.
September 3, 2001
Well the ebay
auction is over and the lot went for quite a bit. Some lucky fan's
walked away with a very cool pic! If anyone's interested in the details,
click the link above. The auction page will remain up for a couple months.
In other news, I've added POTA

It's up in the Gallery now.
Expect updates when there are any, and don't forget to go see
Mel in Planet of The Apes!
August 21, 2001
Finally! Those long rumored pics of Melody in Alloy have been
confirmed and are in the Gallery. Big
thanks to Chelsea for scanning them and sending them in! Also in the Gallery
is a special pic of Mel created by Raul.
It's what her official Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy headshot might look like
if it they had done one of her as the Pink Ranger. Thanks for sending that
in, man! Old pics in the Gallery Page have been moved to the Lands
End 4 Gallery.
In other news devinemi reports that LA Models is no longer Melody's
modeling agent. I can't confirm that yet, but it jives with a vibe I got
from them the last time we talked. If this is true there's not much point
in sending letters to mel via them.
And finally, I've updated both the Modeling
and Contact Mel pages to reflect the preceding
August 6, 2001
The last 4 new pics of Mel from Lands
End are in the Gallery now. The
last one isn't so much new as it is slightly bigger versions of two old
pics, but I figured I'd include them anyway. That's all for now, expect
more updates when there are any.
And don't forget to go see Mel in Planet
of The Apes!
August 5, 2001

More news and info as it comes.
August 2, 2001
Seems like it's feast or famine these days, here at the Fact
Page. :) The good news is we've got a feast this week. I got a new Lands
End Overstocks Catalogue and there are three new pics of Mel. I've
scanned them and should have them up by tomorrow.
Earlier today I finally got the chance to see Planet
of the Apes and it's all true; monkey's are planning to take over the
world! ... OK, maybe not. :) But Mel is indeed in the film. In the end
credits she is almost the last name listed as "Friend's at Leo's Party."
For those that are worried about spoilers ... don't. I won't reveal anything.
She pops up just a couple minutes after the end of the opening
credits. It's quick (less than Coyote Ugly) so stay sharp. For those who
want to catch every second, here are a few tips: Listen for someone to
tell Leo (Mark Walhberg) that he has a postcard. He'll leave and go to
his quarters to watch (it's a video postcard). Scene opens on a party,
all his family and friends. The camera pans across the crowd from left
to right. Keep your eye on the right and watch for the big black guy (I
think it was Chi McBride from Boston Public, but to tell the truth I was
paying more attention to who was behind him :). Mel is right behind him
in a blue bikini!
The camera pans away to some other people, but that's not the
end. Look for her to pop up again on the left hand side of your screen.
All Leo's friends take turns saying hi and Mel pops up behind a blonde
guy (her fiancé in the movie) to show off her engagement ring (lucky
guy!). Everyone oooo's and aaah's and she just smiles and laughs along
with them (looked like a fun party! :). And that's that.
Thanks to everyone who went to see POTA and posted to the newsgroup
or sent me an email. I really appreciate it (and Mel probably does too)!
July 30, 2001
Big updates to the Who Page. I've added
a bunch of pics and links to make navigation easier, updated with the info
from her resume, and done a little formatting to make things look nicer.
Check it out if you haven't already. You can get there via the link above
or by clicking the banner pic of Mel on the front page.

Sir Stack reports that Melody has a small role in Planet
of the Apes! Thanks for the tip Jesse!! I haven't seen it yet, but
will definitely check it out. If anyone else has more info, please let
Subject: Melody Perkins in Planet Of The Apes!
Date: 28 Jul 2001 03:58:04
From: email@example.com (SirSTACK)
Our lovely Karone/Astronema has a VERY brief role in Tim Burton's new
Planet Of The Apes remake. No spoilers, but she's apparently an old friend
of Leo Davidson (Mark Walhberg), and appears on a video tranmission to
him (among a huge crowd of people) quite early in the film. I didn't recognize
her until she showed off her engagement ring, but, yep, it's her. I think
she may have been in a bikini, but that was probably all those loincloths
in the movie clouding my memory. Rather ironic how she went to a primitive
planet in PRLG on a space station, yet this time around she remains on

Alright! Mel has jumped to #10 in the Movie
Times poll! Thanks to those who voted! To those who haven't,
please vote! 15 more votes will put her in the top 5!
July 17, 2001
Movie Times has
a poll up asking: who the best model turned actress is. Melody is one of
those listed so click on the link,
log on and vote for Mel!
Thanks go to Abe for letting me know about the poll!
Expect more updates when there are any.
July 13, 2001
Wow! Friday the thirteenth, lets hope it's lucky! Melody's current
headshot and resume are now up for viewing. I'm not really happy with the
layout, but I've put off posting for long enough. To view them just click
the link at the top of the front page or click here!
If you look at the scan of the resume,
you'll see that half the contact info (agent name and telephone number)
are cut off. That's just the way it was on the original (I didn't accidentally
cut that off when I scanned it). The number listed at the bottom of the
page was found on the web. I haven't had the chance to verify it yet.
If anyone wants to give it a shot, please
me know what you find out!
July 9, 2001
There is one new pic and one bigger pic of Mel in the latest
End catalog. Both are now up in the Gallery.
In bigger news. I just received Melody's current headshot and
resume! No, this isn't a reply from Melody (I wish!). A while back a friend
of mine introduced me tot he wonders of Ebay, and I found the headshot
and resume up for sale (casting agencies generally clean out their files
every 6 months and every 6 months there are people dumpster diving hoping
to get one worth money). Long story short: I jumped on, bid and won. Yay!
:) It came in the mail today.
The wait was incredible but worth it. The headshot is awesome,
great quality (it's the same one she used when auditioning for PR:iS).
The resume was everything I'd hoped for: a little bit of interesting new
info, some old and the name and address of her acting agency (the addy
currently in the Contact Mel section is her modeling agency). Unfortunately
the fax and telephone numbers are cut off (add that to the fact that the
resume is 8 1/2 X 11 and you start to get some idea why she isn't being
hired -- headshots are always 8 X 10, casting agents have filing cabinets
specially designed to hold standard headshots; so when they get one with
a mismatched resume they tend to just throw them out). Shouldn't be a problem
though, quick search on the net should yield results.
In any case, I'm going to do that, scan both and put them up on
the front page (maybe some casting agent will happen by and take a look
... wouldn't that be cool!). So keep checking the site. I'm aiming to get
it all up by the end of the week (but hoping to get it up sooner ... like
July 2, 2001
The three new pics from the latest Lands
End catalog are now up in the Gallery.
Check 'em out!
June 30, 2001
New pics! The latest Lands End catalog has three new pics of
Mel in it! I'll try and get them up in the Gallery
June 11, 2001
Still no new pics, but a friend pointed out to me that one of
the old pics in the new Lands End is not on my site, so I figured I'd put
it up. It's in the Gallery now. Also,
I've made a new Lands End Gallery and
moved the old pics from the main gallery to it.
June 8, 2001
Well, it's been a slow month and it ain't getting any faster.

End catalog are up in the Gallery

Created a 3rd Lands End Gallery

Alright! Now that it's been a couple weeks, Angie_Natasha
has agreed to let me post the second of the two Union Bay pics that she
posted at the
Melody Perkins Air Palace. And since the original was a little messy,
I cleaned it up and put both versions in the gallery
section. Hope you all enjoy them!
February 25, 2001
Well, I did a little digging and found out that the rumor about
Mel appearing in passions is from December 20th of last year. You can find
more info in the Rumor
section of Dustin's
Passions Page. Still no word on whether any of this is true or not
February 19, 2001
There is a rumor floating around that Mel will appear in an episode
of (or possibly join the cast of) Passions,
as one of the Crane daughters or cousins. There has not been any official
announcement, so nothing can be confirmed, but it is out there. I've found
a couple of great Passion sites if anyone is interested.

Thanks to Lyanna for the tip! If anyone learns anything, please
February 16, 2001
There are 2 new pics of Mel at the
Melody Perkins Air Palace. The webmasters have asked that people don't
use the pics on their sites (at least for now), so you'll have to go there
and sign up to see them. It's worth it though! :) Also, I've updated the
Page with the info that I have about this appearance. I am hoping to
get more and I'll update if I learn anything more.

End Spring Catalog are now in the Gallery.
The other five are coming (probably tomorrow).
February 12, 2001
Well, there are a whole slew of new pics out right now, but I
haven't had much time to update. You can see the ones from the Lands
End website in the Gallery now.
There are two, both pretty small, but that's what you get.
In happier news, I received a new Lands End catalog in the mail
and there are 8 new pics of Mel in it (two of which can be found on the
website -- if anyone's wondering why those aren't up right now; I've decided
to hold off and just post the scans, as they'll be a lot bigger and better
quality than those from the website). Time permitting, I'll scan those
today and have them up tomorrow.
In other news, there is one catalog out right now that I missed.
I tried to order it from Lands End but they say that they only sent that
one to "prospective customers" and don't have any left to send to me. :(
So, if anyone has the one with "a woman and a little girl" on the cover,
please do send in scans so I can put them up and share them with the rest
of the fans. :)
In related news, I'd like to thank both Lyanna and Lightspeed_red
for keeping me up to date regarding pics showing up on the Lands End website
and for letting me know about new catalogs. You guys have been a big help!
Thank you for everything; it is most appreciated! :)

Send 'em in now and they should get there just in time! :)
Also, there will be site wide updates throughout this birthday
period to make the Fact Page a little more presentable to a wider range
of surfers. I'll be updating all the pages with a table that should keep
them looking great, even on screens formatted to higher resolutions (for
optimal viewing, see this page with your screen area set at 800 X 600 and
with Netscape as your browser). Plus, I'll be updating the Film
and TV section with a full PR:iS episode list (with all of the bloopers
Mel appeared in) and the Coyote Ugly DVD info. Some new links on the Links
page as well. And, finally, some of the pics from Lands End have been archived
in the new Lands End 2 Gallery. This
should all be done by the 28th.

Mel did not appear on MITM
last night. (No, I don't expect her character to make another appearance,
but I'm keeping my eye out just in case ... besides, it's a great show!

There are 7 new pics of Mel in the February issue of Lands

Lands End are in the Gallery right now. Go on and check. :) The next one
will be up in a bit along with an update to the Gallery breaking the one
page into four smaller pages. Should help it load faster.
In other news, anyone catch Convention
last night on Malcolm
In The Middle? Great episode, as usual! And a perfect set up for some
hilarity to happen if Francis comes back to realize just how wonderful
Patty really is, and how much he messed up by blowing her off. ... and
then, of course, she can get her revenge by making him dangle for a while,
and teach him a real lesson about being so shallow. :) Boy! I really hope
the writers bring back Mel's character. Hey, anyone know how to work up
a petition to bring back a character? We've got the Malcom mailing address
so we could send it in or just let them know it's online. And I'd definitely
sign on for one of those! :) I just have no idea how to start. :(
Dec 30, 2000
New pics of Mel in the latest Lands End! Something like 15 in
all (1 or 2 old ones). I'll start putting them up in batches in the new
year (look for the first batch on January 1st, the first day of the New
I'll also be breaking up some of the pages that have gotten to big
into smaller pages (Current New, Galleries, Blind Alleys, etc ...). No
time frame on that though. Just whenever I get the chance. (In other words,
whenever I recover from New Years! ;) Have a great holiday everyone!!
And don't forget about the repeat of Convention
Mel's episode of MITM
airing tomorrow! (Check your local listings for times.)
Dec 27, 2000
TV Guide lists the Sunday, December 31st episode of Malcolm
In The Middle as a repeat of Mel's episode, Convention.
This is a great episode! So, if you missed it last time, don't miss
it this time!
Thanks to SirSTACK for the tip!

Happy Holidays everyone! Well I finally caught a couple minutes
free time and have updated the gallery
section with the new pics of Mel from Lands End that Blue sent in.
I hope that you all enjoy them, and the season! :)
Dec 20, 2000
Blue's sent in some new pics of Mel from Lands End. I'll try
to get them up this week, but with Christmas coming I may not have time.
If worse comes to worst, I may just up load 'em, list the links and worry
about the thumbnails in the gallery later.
Also, I've updated the Film and TV page with
Mel's appearance (an old one, but one I hadn't known about) on Nightman.
All I have for this one is her name on the cast list. If anyone has this
ep and can send screen caps or other goodies, email
me and let me know. I'll give you credit and put 'em up as soon as
Dec 17, 2000
Added a couple of old rumors that have been kicking around in
my to do file to the Blind Alleys
section. The first one is the report that Mel was dating Lance Bass from
N SYNC; the second, that she was a dancer in "Oops ... I Did It Again"
a Britney Spears music video.
Dec 13, 2000
The new pics from Lands End
are up in the Gallery right now! And
they're great. Thanks to Blue Ice for sending these in (you might remember
him from the Melody Perkins Extravaganza, one of my favorite Mel sites
when I first came online, and the inspiration for this one)! Blue says
these pics came in about a month ago but he didn't have a chance to scan
and post till now. Thanks again Blue!
Dec 12, 2000
A new pic of Mel is up in the Gallery.
I found it in the mail, in an ad for a recliner (you just never know where
she's going to pop up do you? :). No, I'm not sure it's her. Just like
the Leslie and Penny ad, there's air brushing and it's very hard to tell.
In other news, there will be new pics of Mel from Lands
End soon (and since it's from lands End we know it's her! :). I got
three in an email from an old friend today and will try and get them up
by tomorrow. I don't know how I missed them, but I'm glad he sent them
in! If anyone else notices something I missed, please let me know!
December 11, 2000
Good news! Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy will soon be available
on VCD. They've already released the first 8 episodes and the rest are
scheduled to come in soon (the staff at Get
VCD's said that they would probably be released every few months).
That means Mel's episodes should be out sometime in the new year (see the
complete episode list in the Lost Galaxy section
of the Film and TV page).

The pics from Mel's yearbook are up in the Gallery!
There are three in all (Junior Year, Senior Year, and one from the list
of Top 10 Academic Graduates) and I think they're great! I've also added
the info Joe sent me to the Who page, as well as
a few other bits of interest (like what "Quantitative Economics" is).
Anyone interested in contacting Joe can send email to me
and I will pass it on.

Big news! Mel's former classmate, sent me a few pics from their
yearbook. I'll try to have them up in the Gallery on monday. Until then,
you all can check out the Age section for his first
post. I'll try and figure out where to put the rest of what he's told me
and get it up at about the same time.
Anyone interested in contacting Joe with questions can email
me and I will pass it on.

Well, I called LA Models and found out why the link to Mel's
modeling page no longer works. I asked if they had broken with Mel and
if she had moved to another agency. The lady I talked to assured me that
wasn't the case. She said that the page is still there, but they've moved
it and password protected it, so that only clients can access it. As to
fan mail, they will still forward it on to Mel. If you've sent something
before (as have I) she's got it. If it hasn't been answered, either she
doesn't want to answer you or she hasn't had time to go through them all
yet. For some reason I think the latter is more in line with her character.
In any case, I've updated all the LA Models links on my pages; the new
ones should all point to their front
page. If you see any that don't, let
me know, and I'll fix that quick. :)
As for the possible former classmate that emailed me. He's said he will
try to get me a pic from his year book by the end of the week. So expect
an update on Monday or there-about.
December 5, 2000
Odds and ends.
Looks like Absolute Melody
is coming back this month with new updates! It'll be great to see what
Brent has learned in the time since we last heard from him! :) If I recall
correctly, he was close to getting a fan mail address for Mel.
Also I got an email today from someone who says they went to high school
with Mel. Right now I'm waiting for a reply and, hopefully, some sort of
confirmation. More on that later.
December 4, 2000
Added the pic from this months In Style magazine to the Gallery.
What do you think? Is this Mel or not? Email
me with your opinions.
On another note, it appears that the LA Models site has taken Mel's
modeling page down. Anyone know why? Could this mean there's been a split
between the two? Has Mel given up on acting? Thanks to Lightspeed_red for
the heads up!
December 3, 2000
There is an advert in this months In Style magazine (the one
with Sandra Bullock on the cover) that features a model who (to my eye)
looks exactly like Mel. Is it her or not? Email
me with your opinions. I should have the image up in the Gallery
December 1, 2000
New pics from Lands End
have been added to the Gallery! There
are two new ones, on larger version of an old one and a repeat of the lime
green sweater (which is already in the Gallery). Enjoy!
In other news, Sunday's episode of Malcom
In The Middle is a repeat. Hopefully we'll get something new on Wednesday.
Nov 30, 2000
Despite yesterdays report from our anonymous tipster, Mel did
not appear on last nights episode of MITM.
Looks like she won't be on anytime soon, but I'll let you all know if I
hear anything about a new appearance.
In site news, I've updated the Who page with
Malcom info from the Film and TV pages and the
Mel page. More updates tomorrow!
Nov 29, 2000
An anonymous tipster, posting to the Melody
Online message board, reports that Mel will be appearing on tonight's
episode of MITM. Considering
my talk with the guy at their production offices, it's not real likely.
I'm assuming that, if she was making an appearance on tonight's episode,
he would have mentioned it. Then again, the whole staff is on an increased
production schedule, so maybe it slipped his mind. In favor of this possibility
is the fact that I mentioned the episode as airing on a wednesday, and
he could easily have assumed that I meant this coming wednesday instead
of last wednesday. Additionally, any storyline which involves Patty (Mels'
character) returning, would include Francis; and he is slated to appear
in tonight's episode (and laundry suggests coming home).
So, will she be on? Tune in and find out!
Nov 28, 2000
Yesterday I spoke to someone at the Production Offices for MITM.
I asked if we could send fan mail to her, via their mailing address. He
said yes (check the Contact Mel section for
the address). I also asked if she would return for another episode. Sadly,
he doesn't know. He said it was possible, but that would be up to the writers.
I take this as confirmation that she won't appear any time soon (if she'd
done another episode, I assume he would have told me).
Nov 27, 2000
Mel didn't appear in last nights episode of MITM.
But it's a good bet that she'll show up the next time Francis returns home.
So keep your eyes open. And stay tuned for another new episode on wednesday!
"This Wednesday, Malcolm and Reese see a psychiatrist. Do you really
think it's going to help? Plus, Francis gets a big head over dirty laundry."
Nov 24, 2000
Updated the Film and TV page with the description of "Convention."
Will Mel appear in another episode of MITM?
Stay tuned to find out. From the official website: "Dewey has to save
the day when Hal brings home one too many…bats? Where's Lois when you need
her? Oh, she's getting robbed!" Another new episode airs Sunday!

description of "Convention," her guest starring ep; which airs Wednesday,

Sir Stack's post from the alt.fan.power-rangers
Subject: Astronema Sits Twice: Or, Melody In The Middle, next
Date: 14 Nov 2000 05:28:46
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (SirSTACK)
The recent TV Guide, the one for next week, shows the write-up for
the episode we've been hearing about for a while. On the Wednesday, November
22nd episode of Malcolm In The Middle, our former Karone/Astronema,
Perkins, guest stars as the babysitter! The write ups for the episode,
titled "Convention", include such words about her as "Sexy" and "Gorgeous".
She's even shown (half of her face, anyway) in the half-page ad for said
episode! So it looks like it will be a Wednesday episode, rather than a
Sunday one. Don't miss it!

Sorry, no Melody on last nights episode, but good news! The babysitter
episode has been announced! Mega -thanks go to David over at Life

New Babysitter Episode Scheduled
This previously referenced edition (which outside sources state will
feature Melody Perkins) will air on Wednesday, November 22nd.

Interesting note. As can be seen above, most episodes list guest stars
for each episode (if there are any). But the webmaster from Life Is pointed
out that FOX hasn't released any info about the new babysitter yet. This
could be because the episode with her in it won't air till further on in
the season and thus hasn't been listed yet, or it could be weirder. Mel
seems to have a streak of non-credited roles going (OK, two roles doesn't
make a streak -- those roles being the new bartender in "Coyote
Ugly" and the voice of the laser in PR: Lightspeed Rescue -- but with
MITM, that could be three) and this could be a continuation of that. Funky!
November 6, 2000
Well, Mel didn't appear on the season premier of MITM
(which aired Sunday the 5th). The good news is that another new episode
will air this Wednesday the 8th! The next few episodes will run as listed

IMO, the best Malcom Website out there!).

The new babysitter (who may be Melody) should show up by that last episode
(they'll need someone to watch the kids) but she could easily show up before
that (since the parents learned the old babysitter was dead in the season
premier). So, stay tuned to the show or you might miss out!
