Rob Mello is best known for his role as John Tombs in the Blumhouse breakout film, Happy Death Day, which he’s reprised in Happy Death Day 2U. His first major role was as Ted Cole in the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ “The Best of Me”, and as Buford Granger in Badass 3 (Badasses on the bayou).
Rob’s assent to a career in film acting was not a typical one. In 2012 while already working two jobs to provide for his family, he was just scraping by. Rob came across a Craigslist ad for an extra and decided to give it a try. Thoroughly impressing the director, Palomino, the audition landed him a leading role in the SAG short film “Dickie-Bird. Soon after Rob auditioned for the comedy short “Quicklime”. He fell in love with acting all over again. Rob enrolled in classes at Performer’s Studio Workshop in Tampa Florida, where he studied under Kathy Laughlin learning the Eric Morris process.
