Melissa Johnson Carissimo

Blythe in Episode 5: The Niece

When the character she was playing, the Wicked Witch of the West, died in a grade-school performance of The Wizard of Oz, Melissa was dragged off stage by her Munchkin little brother (Brandt Johnson). Undaunted by such indignity, she went on to perform in numerous stage productions and to study acting with Richard Pinter in NYC before moving to Genoa, Italy, where she lives now.
