HOW SHE GOT STARTED IN SHOW BUSINESS: "I was four," Melissa Joan Hart answers when asked when she got into show biz. The New York actress adds: "I did commercials, than a guest appearance on "The Equalizer" and "Saturday Night Live", then I went to off-Broadway and got into plays and stuff, but then I got Clarissa." Clarissa, of course, is "Clarissa Explains It All", The long-running Nickelodeon series that recently wrapped up its first-run episodes. In the last episode, Clarissa graduated from high school and moved to New York to begin an internship at a newspaper. Ironically, the show which ran for 5 years, in some ways mirrors Melissa’s own life. She, too, moved to New York--well, to her family’s home in New Jersey--to attend college at New York University. However, Melissa had to take on independent studies for a while because she had a few other irons on the fire. She was busy making the NBC-TV movie "Twisted Desire", the cable film "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" and then the spin-off series of "Sabrina" for ABC. That series begins in September of 1996, so it looks as if Melissa might be hitting the books independently for a while to come!
