Melanie Kohn

Melanie Kohn, the voice of Lucy van Pelt

Melanie Kohn started in theatre at three years old and landed a role as an extra in “The Godfather” at seven. She went on to voice “Lucy van Pelt” from 1974-1977 in “Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown,” “It’s a Mystery, Charlie Brown,” “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown,” “You’re a Good Sport, Charlie Brown,” and the full-length feature film “Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown.” She also voiced Lucy in TV commercials for Weber’s and Millbrook bread.

In college, Kohn was passionate about poetry, drama, creative writing and broadcasting. In her 20’s, Kohn was employed at a radio station as an on-air personality and marketing specialist prior to working in the medical and dental fields, traveling, teaching and raising three children. While her children were young, Kohn returned to college to earn her degree. She later returned to work as a marketing specialist at radio stations where she enjoyed every aspect of her career, particularly writing and voicing many of her clients’ ads. Kohn now spends as much time as she can in the Vancouver area, where her three children live and all work in the Visual Effects aspect of film, television, streaming and gaming.
