Mini Bio (1)
Adeye Sahran Melchor was born in Syracuse, New York, the first child in a family of three girls; Adeye, Annie and Sarah. At the age of five she and her family moved west to Oak Park, in Southern California.
There, Adeye's mother, Andrea, a ballerina, enrolled Adeye and Annie into a dance studio where they spent the next six years studying and joining the company. Adeye also started modeling for Bullock's Department store and was the youngest Teen Board model. At age eleven, Adeye's dance studio started offering acting classes and when the family moved the next year to a small suburb in Phoenix, Arizona she continued taking acting lessons along with dance and voice lessons.
Adeye's high school had a state-of-the-art performing arts building with a theater company that put on six main stage and ten black box shows a year; as well as run a touring children's theater troupe and an improv group. Adeye also joined the dance team and choir and directed a one-act play.
All this helped to get her accepted to Yale School of Drama's Summer Program where she studied for a summer before being accepted to the University of Southern California's BFA Theater program, at the age of 17. After three years of study Adeye left school to work professionally in LA. Over the years she has done numerous commercials, a pilot backed by Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, and the premier episode of Jon Favreau's Dinner for Five for IFC.
Over the past five years Adeye has been working in LA theater. She went on tour with a show, The Berlin Blues, to New York and Washington D.C. in 2007 with the theater company, Native Voices at the Autry, and was nominated for a LA Stage Alliance Ovation Award for Best Ensemble in Pera Palas at The Boston Court.
