Melanie Burgess

Born: Monday 2nd April 1979 (age: 44)


Melanie Burgess was, with John Frank Levey, in charge of casting Torchwood: Miracle Day.

She has enjoyed a working partnership with Levey since the mid-2000s. Their first screen credit together seems to have been on ER — though this first ER credit came long after the casting of DWU actors, Alex Kingston and Mekhi Phifer. She has worked exclusively with Levey since 2005, and she has risen from the position of his casting assistant to his casting associate to finally, as on Miracle Day, his co-equal casting director. Amongst their non-ER work are: The Evidence, Smith, the US version of Shameless and Southland.
