Explanation

The words even though set up a contrast, so you need something that contrasts with roles that involved a lot of lines. A character without a lot of lines would be quiet. Melancholy and dejected imply sadness, but not necessarily a refusal to speak (Hamlet is pretty depressed, and he talks all the time).

Mute goes too far. Laconic and curt both match with the meaning you’re seeking. Note that curt has the sense of being rudely short with people, whereas laconic is not necessarily negative.

Hence laconic, curt are correct!
