Natasha Melnick

Recognizable from her series regular role in the critically acclaimed series Freaks and Geeks, Natasha Melnick stars as Joel's quirky high school friend Isabelle in Do Over. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Calif. Melnick began acting in school plays for fun, but her early focus was on her schoolwork rather than the stage. Fate intervened when a casting director came to her middle school scouting new talent for the Disney film The Parent Trap and tapped Melnick for a small role. It was her first professional audition.

Bit by the bug, Melnick began pursuing an acting career in earnest. She appeared in guest-starring roles on several television series including 7th Heaven, Judging Amy and Undeclared. Melnick's big break came when she was cast in Freaks and Geeks as the cheerleader Cindy, every boy's object of desire. Other roles include starring opposite Patty Duke in the movie of the week Miracle on the Mountain, and appearances in the feature films Go and Orange County.

Melnick currently lives with her family in Los Angeles and, when not working, takes every opportunity to enjoy her second greatest passion...snowboarding. She also plays guitar and is the lead singer and songwriter for her band One Last Run.
