Melissa Benoist is a talented actress and singer who has been born on October 4, 1990, in Houston, Texas. She is the youngest of four children of former Rev. Benito Benoit, who is also her father. Melissa’s younger sister is named Ryder and she goes by her middle name Melissa.
As an actress, Melissa Benoist has been known for her beautiful looks and naturally good features. Her father had encouraged her to pursue acting because he saw her as a potential role model for his future daughter. She spent a lot of time studying different types of acting so that she would be prepared to enter this field. She studied at the University of Texas at Austin, where she pursued a degree in Fine Arts. After graduation, Melissa moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a singer-turned-actress. She appeared in several television shows such as CSI, ER, House, Frasier, and ended up becoming one of the top ladies in the soap opera industry.
Now, Melissa Benoist has been cast in some well-known and popular shows including King of the Hill, Raising Helen, and Mom. Melissa’s size does concern some people though because she is not really tall (she is listed as 5 feet 9 inches in measurement). For this reason, a search of the internet reveals that Melissa Benoist measures only 33 inches in height, which is the same as her mother. Some may find this to be surprising but it is consistent with information found in her mother’s obituary. Melissa’s full name is Melissa Ann Bakeno and she was given this name by her father when she was three years old.
One question asked by many people who are curious about Melissa Benoist’s background is how did she get herself listed at the top of the list for the” tallest women” category despite being just over five feet nine inches in height? As previously mentioned, her full name is Melissa Ann Bakeno and her birth date is October 6, 1970. The same obituary said that her mother was born in Lisle, Minnesota and that she was the middle of seven children. So it appears that her real father was not around to provide her with much guidance as far as physical growth is concerned.
