As a young actress, Melles began appearing in various comedies and television shows. Her first breakthrough role was in the Academy Award nominated World War II drama "'38." The plot followed Melles as an actress in love with a Jewish writer in pre-World War II Austria. The following year she starred in the comedy "Paradise" and took the lead role as an unhappily married wife. Though Melles' television and film career started shining brightly, she continued acting in stage productions. She collaborated multiple times with the prolific director Dieter Dorn and starred in many of his productions, including the William Shakespeare play "Troilus and Cressida."
