Melora Hardin has wide-ranging passions as an artist, including acting, directing, dancing, writing and singing. She plays “Jan” on the tv series “The Office” and has roles in a number of film and tv projects. At 13, she won a scholarship to study with the Joffrey Ballet Company in New York.
She sang as Fantine in “Les Miserables” at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this month; made her feature film directorial debut in 2007 with the movie “You,” and has produced two albums of her writing and singing.
She says of her multiple talents: “I’m always very very keen to keep my eyes and heart and ears open to opportunities to be creative. That’s really my reason for being on this Earth, is to find more and more opportunities to be creative, and as long as I’m looking for those, and walking through those doors, and receiving those, and participating in those, I’m going to be fine.”
