Meet Melissa Brasselle, an actress and stunt performer who most recently appeared on “Impossible Heists”. See her biography, photos and video here.
Although Melissa Brasselle hasn’t filmed a movie since 2004, even her old ones still make waves. “Raptor” from 2001 aired January 3 on the Sci-Fi channel and Melissa Brasselle fans have come out of the woodwork. See Cold Fusion for a pretty funny review of the film.
As a biography, Melissa Brasselle is the daughter of singer Arlene DeMarco of The DeMarco Sisters, and actor Keefe Brasselle. Her measurements are 5’7″ tall. She goes by the nickname “Rocky” and has a daughter, Hayley, born in 1998.
Melissa began doing stunt work by accident. She went with a friend to the “Batman Stunt Show” where she was asked to audition, and she ended up getting the lead role of Poison Ivy. Since then she has been a stuntwoman in more than 20 movies. Brasselle also worked as a professional wrestler for a bit as the Italian Mafia Princess.
In 2005, Melissa appeared on the show “Impossible Heists” on Court TV, a show that the channel says is “like ‘Ocean’s 11′ meets ‘Survivor’”. Two teams competed while recreating famous heists without getting caught.
