Tracy Constance Margaret Hyde (born 16 May 1959) is a former British actress and model who shot to fame in the 1971 film Melody after being discovered by film producer, David Puttnam.

Hyde was born in Fulham, London, England. She learned ballet at the age of four, did junior modelling for an agency and auditioned for a pickle advertisement.

The writer and director Andrew Birkin (brother of actress Jane Birkin) saw photographs of the young Tracy Hyde and persuaded her mother Maureen to audition her for the title role of Melody Perkins. Birkin also recommended Tracy to director Waris Hussein, writer Alan Parker and producer David Puttnam. After screen tests and auditions, Hyde finally won the role.

After Melody, Hyde appeared in the UK Trial (BBC, 1971), ITV Playhouse: The Greeks And Their Gifts (Anglia, 1972) and Love Story: Home For The Holidays (Associated Television, 1973). The success of Melody in Japan resulted in Hyde being invited there in 1972 and plans were made for a film with her in the lead role. Budget restrictions prevented the film from being made.

Hyde continued with her education and studied at a secretarial college; after leaving she was employed as a legal secretary for a law firm. Meanwhile, she appeared in Japanese magazines and calendars and visited Japan for the second time in 1977, when she was declared "Favourite actress" in Roadshow magazine.

In the 1980s, Hyde made her film comeback in Dead End For Belinda (1980), The Orchard End Murder (1980) and Alice (1982) where she was re-united with her Melody co-star, Jack Wild. Her numerous TV appearances include Sorry! (BBC, 1981–1982), Kinvig (LWT, 1981), The Gentle Touch (LWT, 1982), Now And Then (LWT, 1983–1984), Dempsey and Makepeace (LWT, 1985), Bust (LWT, 1987) and The Bill (Thames Television, 1988).

By the end of the decade, Hyde had disappeared from the limelight and married Allen J. Polley.

In 1994, Japanese TV sought out Hyde and sent one of their reporters to the UK to find her. Mark Lester was contacted and when it was found that Hyde had moved to France, Leaster and the reporter both went there to search for her. She had moved there with her husband and her three sons. In 1999, Lester and Hyde were reunited again in another Japanese TV special.

Hyde has since remarried and has returned home to London where she now manages the family business, a kennel boarding service.

Cette histoire romantique est racontée du point de vue des enfants de l'histoire, les adultes ne jouant que des rôles secondaires. Daniel Lattimer (Mark Lester) se lie d'amitié avec Ornshaw (Jack Wild), un garçon perturbateur. Un jour, Daniel tombe amoureux de Melody Perkins (Tracy Hide) et ils annoncent à leurs parents leur intention de se marier, non pas à l'avenir, mais dès maintenant. Cependant, les adultes, les parents comme les professeurs, ne les prennent pas au sérieux. Ornshaw non plus car il pense que Melody lui vole son ami. Plus tard cependant, Ornshaw et leurs autres camarades aident le jeune couple. Ils se réunissent dans une voie ferrée désaffectée pour marier le couple, mais les professeurs les suivent et essaient de les attraper. Les enfants leur échappent et font exploser une voiture. Melody et Daniel, aidés par Ornshaw, s'enfuient par draisine sur les rails.
