Melissa is a child of divorced parents, Julie and Jim Benoist, and has two sisters. As early as three years of age, Melissa started attending dance lessons, and the following year her aunt cast her in a church play, of which she was the director.

Growing up, Melissa became more interested in performing arts, and during her teen years became a part of Disneyland, thanks to her studying at the Academy of Theatre Arts, a musical theatre school in her hometown. She appeared anonymously in several productions, including “Cinderella” among others. She eventually received her Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre arts from Marymount Manhattan College in New York City in 2011.

Her on-screen debut happened even before she finished her studies; she portrayed Laurel at the age of 18 in the adventure comedy film “Tennessee” (2008), starring Mariah Carey, Adam Rothenberg and Ethan Peck, and then continued with minor roles in such TV series as “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” (2010), “Blue Bloods” (2010), and “Homeland” in 2011, before auditioning for the role of Marley Rose in the TV series “Glee”. Being a musical drama, the producers held five singing auditions, and Melissa performed a different song each time. She eventually got the part, and in the next two years appeared in over 40 episodes of the critically appraised show, which considerably increased her net worth and popularity.

Thanks to her budding career, Melisa was offered a sponsorship deal with Coca-Cola, and endorsed their new product called P10 300 ml Coke Mismo, which also increased her net worth. In 2014, Melissa was chosen for the role of Nicole in the music drama film “Whiplash”, starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons, which launched her to a level higher in Hollywood, and since then her career has been on a constant rise. The following year Melissa featured in three quality productions – “Danny Collins” directed by Dan Fogelman, which eventually received a Golden Globe Award nomination, then the romantic drama film “The Longest Ride”, and the comedy adventure “Band of Robbers”, starring Kyle Gallner, Adam Nee and Matthew Gray Gubler. Also in that year, Melissa was chosen for the title role of in the fantasy adventure series “Supergirl”, and so far has appeared in all 65 episodes of the award-winning series, which has added a considerable amount to her net worth. She appeared as Supergirl in several other TV series too, including “The Flash”, and “Legends of Tomorrow”.

In recent years, Melissa appeared in the drama that chronicles the Boston Marathon shootings – “Patriots Day” (2016), next to Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Monaghan, and starred in the comedy-drama “Sun Dogs” (2017), while she is also working on the TV series “Waco”, which will be released late in 2018.

Back in 2013, she teamed up with Blake Jenner for a Kickstarter’s campaign to fund the production of the film “Juvenile”. The two were successful, and the film came out in 2017, with screenplay written by Jenner, and directed by Bradley Buecker, while Melissa was the lead star of the film as Jennifer. However, the film didn’t attract much attention.

When it comes to her personal life, Melissa was married to Blake Jenner from 2015 until December 2016, when she filed for divorce, stating irreconcilable differences as the reason.

Melissa discovered that she has suffered from depression and anxiety attacks ever since she was 13 years old, but has managed to overcome those problems mostly thanks to her colleague Chris Wood, whom she helped launch a website “I Don’t Mind” in 2017, which deals with the stigma around mental illnesses.

Back in 2015, Melissa suffered a head injury, when she hit her head and one eye on a potted plant, which left her with one eye pupil larger than the other.

Born in Tacoma, Washington, Donahue is the daughter of Doris Genevieve and William. As early as two years of age, she was dancing with her parents, and from that point she has been participating in various radio programs, and became a dancer in vaudeville. She also attended a ballet school, the Long’s Private School, to enhance her talent. At the age five, she was signed by Universal Studios which spotted her talent, and that became the start of her long career as an actress.

Although she was an actress as a child, her career only came into full swing when she became a teenager. Her early projects included “Love is Better than Ever”, “Three Daring Daughters”, and “Girls Town” in the late ’40s and ’50s, which early projects set up her career and started her net worth.

In 1954, Donahue’s career catapulted to success when she became part of the show “Father Knows Best”; her girl-next-door appeal became a perfect fit for her role as Betty, and soon she became a household name. She played the role for six years until the show ended in 1960. Her role not only became her ticket to success, but also considerably boosted her net worth.

After this success, Donahue joined another hit TV program, “The Andy Griffith Show.” She played the leads girlfriend but only stayed in the show for one season. She also appeared in the series “Many Happy Returns” for one season from 1964 to 1965.

The rest of the ’60s and ’70’s became a series of non-stop projects for Donahue. Some of the shows she did included “The Odd Couple” from 1972 to 1975, “Mulligan’s Stew” in 1977, and recurring roles in “The Love Boat” from 1979 to 1987, as well as in the long-running show “Days of Our Lives” from 1984 to 1985. Her various appearances maintained her career and also helped her wealth to rise.

Although she didn’t reach super-stardom, her consistency in acting made her a favourite on television and in movies even in small roles. She continued acting in the ’90’s, appearing in movies and shows like “Pretty Woman”, “Get a Life”, “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” and “Friends”.

In 1998, Donahue published a book entitled “In the Kitchen with Elinor Donahue”, in which she shared her life under the spotlight, and some of her favourite recipes.

Today, Donahue is not that active in acting but still makes some appearances. One of her last projects included a small role in “The Young and the Restless” in 2010.

In terms of her personal life, Donahue was first married to Richard Smith, but their marriage ended in divorce in 1961. After one year, she married Harry Ackerman, and they were together until his death in 1991. Today she is married to Lou Genevrino, her husband since 1992. Donahue has four children.
