Melanie Atwood

Melanie is Lisa’s younger sister. She always sees herself in competition with her older sister. It drives Lisa mad but Melanie loves her and thinks the world of her. A mischievous prankster, Melanie, together with her best friend, Ashley, are always up to something (especially if it means a way to make some money or gain some notoriety). These schemes and pranks usually end in some kind of disaster much to the amusement of everyone except Lisa who is constantly embarrassed by the girls' antics.

Jessie Jacobs ( Plays Melanie )

The hills are alive with the sound of music when The Saddle Club cast gathers for filming. Jessie is delighted to be re-united with friends from the stage production of The Sound of Music, which played at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne. Jessie made her theatrical debut in the role of Marta von Trapp, and her sister Brigitta was played by Janelle Corlass-Brown while Glenn Meldrum played brother Friedrich. “It’s great to be working with people I know from that show and also one of the directors Arnie Custo directed ‘Worst Best Friend’ the television mini series I was in, so it’s like working with a bunch of friends,” says Jessie.

Jessie is an accomplished classical violinist, having studied for six years. “My favorite subject is Music, probably because my dad teaches it and I also like Art and English,” she tells us. Jessie has two brothers aged 18 and 9 who have both done some acting but according to her “they are over that now”.

Her other credits include Annie and The Snow Queen for the Dandenong Theatre Company, Sunday in the Park and Children of Eden for the Monash University Performing Arts, Molly in the television mini-series Worst Best Friends (Channel 10), Tinkerbell and The Snow Queen for S.L.A.M.S. and Jessie also appeared in the Bob Downes Christmas Show at the Athenaeum Theatre.

Jessie was also nominated for a Guild Award, which is for children performing in amateur theatre.

Jessie loves animals and has a cat God 2 (named by her brother she assures us) and two budgies Budge and Tiffany. Her ambition is to either continue as an actor or maybe work behind the scenes, perhaps as a director.

Sadly, Jessie passed away in a tragic accident in Melbourne in 2008.

I think Melanie is quite mischievous and sometimes a little bit cheeky. Sometimes she may seem bossy but at most times, she is a nice girl.

The Saddle Club™ series stars three heroines, Stevie, Carole and Lisa, who form The Saddle Club™ at the Pine Hollow Stables. Each character has a distinctly different personality but all share an equal love of horses and a strong loyalty to each other.
