USC alumna and former Song Girl joins the cast of ‘Shameless’

Fight on, Mel!

Perry Mattfeld, a recent USC graduate, is playing Mel on Showtime's hit show Shameless.

Shameless follows the Gallagher family through their tumultuous lives. Mel (Mattfeld's character) is the girlfriend of one of Fiona Gallagher's tenants and the two of them don't get along.

Mattfeld graduated Cum Laude from USC's School of Dramatic Arts with a BFA in Acting. While at USC, she was a Song Girl and was a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority.

It's about that time again 😏✌🏼

This isn't the first time you've probably seen Mattfeld on the big screen, as she has been acting from a young age. "FrankenGirl" from Wizards of Waverly Place, anyone?
