Melinda Clarke was born on April 24, 1969, in Dana Point, California. She is the daughter of actor John Clarke and Patricia Clarke, a ballet dancer. She grew up with her two siblings, Heidi who pasted way in 1994, and Joshua. She took after her mother at a young age and trained in ballet. She also took lessons to train her soprano singing voice. When Clarke got older, she started taking an interest in her father's profession and began appearing in school productions.
After completing high school, Clarke moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and modeling. Just three days after relocating, she landed a role on the soap opera Days of Our Lives, which her father had starred in since its inception in 1965. She played the role of a blind preacher's daughter, Faith Taylor from 1989 – 1990.
In the early 1990s, Clarke appeared in a number of low-budget B movies, including Hot Under the Collar (1991), Return of the Living Dead 3 (1993), Young Goodman Brown (1993), Out for Blood (1993), and Return to Two Moon Junction (1994).

She continued to win television roles throughout the early 2000s, appearing in episodes of Enterprise, Charmed, Everwood, The District, Firefly and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Between all of her guest appearances, she found time to take on a few small film roles in forgettable features.Clarke's big break came in 2003 when she was cast as the devious Julie on The O.C. Though the character was intended to be a reoccurring guest star, Clarke charmed audiences and she was quickly written in as a central character. The series was an instant hit and brought Clarke further into the public eye. She stayed on the series until its end in 2007. During the years she appeared on The O.C., Clarke found time to make guest appearances on HBO's Entourage and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, both in 2006.
