As a young boy, Mel Brian Patrón always dreamed of being a superhero, but after numerous spider bites resulting in nothing more than allergic reactions, reality sank in. “Alas,” he thought, “one day, I may be able to play a hero on the big screen!” So began his acting career! After performing in productions of RENT, Godspell, and Dark of the Moon, Mel Brian has begun to break into film and television, dancing for Fox’s Mobbed and Hell’s Kitchen and working with dir. Ava DuVernay in Middle of Nowhere. He is thrilled to be on tour with hereandnow, and so thankful for the opportunities put forth by God. Thank you to my family, friends, my wonderful castmates, crew, and John Miyasaki.
