Beginnings in Entertainment and Early Life
Melissa Sue was born the younger of two girls; her family relocated from the San Francisco Bay region to Los Angeles when she was young, but when she was 13, her parents divorced, and she was primarily reared by her Roman Catholic mother.
Her teacher encouraged her parents to try to locate an agent for her while she was attending dancing courses, which led to her appearing in various advertisements, including Mattel and Sears commercials. Soon after, she began receiving offers for television jobs, including a guest appearance on an episode of “Bewitched.”
She also played Millicent, a girl who kissed Bobby in “The Brady Bunch,” and she appeared in an episode of “Shaft” the same year. These eventually led to her landing a role in “Little House on the Prairie,” which she would work on for the following eight years, with the story centered on a farm family in the 1870s and 1880s.
Little House on the Prairie has come to an end.
Melissa Sue won a nomination the following year for her role in the horror film “Happy Birthday to Me” after leaving “Little House on the Prairie” after the seventh season. She then appeared in films such as “The Equalizer,” “Murder, She Wrote,” and “CHiPs.”
