Melissa Fumero is an American actress / model who was born on the 19th of August 1982 and is currently 33 years of age. She was born as one of the four children born to Carlos Fumero, an archeologist and his wife Martha who was an explorer but later turned to be a travel guide. Her parents, who were Cuban, were in love since a young age had travelled to Unites States of America as teenagers and for certain time period didnít see each other at all. After meeting again in some yearsí time, the couple got married and had a family of four young ones. She has two elder sisters; Julia and Johanna, as well as a younger brother named Maximillian (or Max).  After the death of her father when she was a young teenager, the family was looked after by her mother and her eldest sister had been working to support the family.

Born at their home in Lyndhurst, New Jersey, U.S.A, Melissa was interested in music from her childhood. She actually learned to play guitar from 4 and also sang in many programs that took place in her community or school. She attended a local public school and was a good scholar. She also was very active in her extra circulars and also played lacrosse till she was in her mid- school. Apart from singing, she also liked dancing very much and took dance lessons with her mother, who happened to be a ballerina. She also was involved in drama and used to perform in the local church on Sundays. Upon her graduation, she studied Fine Arts and received a Bachelorís degree in 2003, from the New York University. Brought up in a very religious family, she is a follower of Christianity just like the rest of her family. An American by nationality, she belongs to white ethnicity.

Her first acting roles came in 2004, when she joined the cast of One Life to Live, and played the role of Adriana, which had been previously portrayed by two other actresses. The character was played for long time by award winning actress Robin Strasser, which happens to be the daughter of a Dorian Cramer in the series. After playing for 3 years in the series, she thought about not extending her contract as she wanted to try other new things, but still remained in touch with the show. In 2008, she quit the show after playing for some 15 episodes that year, but returned back in 2010 after her role was required to cover the loss of another character named Gina Tognoni. Then in 2009, she was casted for her first ever movie named Tiny Dancer, which was an independent movie. In 2010, she was seen as Zoe in CWís TV drama Gossip Girl, and by 2013 was already playing in FOX TVís Brooklyn Nine-Nine as Amy Santiago.

Regarding her personal life, not much is known about her past affairs. But, she has been married now, to her friend and co-star David Fumero. The couple dated for some time before they planned on getting married, which took place in 2007. With no children till date, there arenít any rumors of the couple splitting anytime soon.
