About Melinda Augustina

Actress-Author-Producer, Melinda Augustina’s first film THREE-FIFTY has been charming audiences from coast to coast in America.  “With a total of 17 festivals, three awards and a special screening at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, I’m very happy with the results of this first film–and even happier that it was developed first live on stage” says Melinda.  

Acting credits include dozens of stage roles in midweset regional theaters in the US.  A few awards, most significanly Best Actress for playing the intense role of the armchair Nazi “Lemon” in Wallace Shawn’s “Aunt Dan and Lemon”.  She has been adding film and television credits to her resume since moving to Los Angeles.   She has played a number of roles in commercials, independent films and television.
