_MG_94511. Where you are from?
​I am a New Yorker!  Just moved to midtown, I love it there.  A lot of young energy and it’s so great to be in the vibe and culture of the NYC. It inspires me and motivates me to grew personally and professionally.  There are so many people you can learn and grow from.  I like the fast pace of it as well!
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
I am extremely passionate about art- specifically classical realism. I am an oil painter myself, I have been painting for about 5 years, mostly self-taught, however, I have been drawing since I was about 8 years old. Currently, I am working on putting a show together, which is very exciting!  It will consist of about 15-20 pieces.  In addition, I love to read, play ice hockey, working out, running, and generally exercising, no sky diving though, life has enough extremes as it is already!
3. Favorite clients from the biz?_MG_9511
My favorite client has been Calvin Klein underwear, they were my first big fit client and I am still working with them.  Rag and Bone, J. Crew are great clients as well, and all the other clients I am currently working with have been good to me and everyone of them has a unique and interesting products, which make them stand out in their own way.
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
I in the near future I would love to work with some high end clients /brands I haven’t worked with yet, Gap is definitely a one big client whom I would love to work with. I always enjoy challenging myself, however, maintaining integrity while achieving my goals is just as important.
5. Career highlights? 
The Singles Project was fun, there was a fun photo shoot, I was featured in 3 episodes.  Filming the VH1 reality show The Agency, where I was featured as one of the top fit models in the industry, it was my first interesting and fun experience in the world of reality TV. Furthermore, I did a movie called Cold Souls starring Paul Giamatti, Sci-Fi dark comedy, that gig got me an invitation to join SAG.
6. How did you get into modeling or acting?
I started my modeling career with a small modeling agency in Ocean Grove, New Jersey, after 6 months of training and experience with them, I was scouted by Wilhelmina and joined their main board, which lasted for quite a bit of time and propelled my career into the professional world of modeling.  Eventually, I became very successful in fit modeling and developed a strong career in Fit.

BICOASTAL MGMT talent Marissa in “Romeo and Juliet”

Screen Shot 2015-07-28 at 3.20.24 PMHow did you get started in this career?
I started performing at a very young age. My entire childhood revolved around dance shows and local theater productions. I was hooked! I never wanted to stop.

Tell us how doing this play was different than any others?
Romeo and Juliet is a story everyone knows so well. Because there are so many famous scenes and phrases that are quoted so often, it definitely comes with a responsibility. That being said, getting the opportunity to plug my own voice into Juliet and explore her character even beyond my previous knowledge has been such an adventure. Furthermore, witnessing the other amazing actors in the cast breathing their own voices into each of the iconic characters is not only inspirational, but also gratifying.

Have you ever done a Shakespeare play before?
This is my first full length Shakespeare! Romeo and Juliet has always been one 0f my favorites and to get to play Juliet is such a life marker for me.

How is doing a sexual/sensual scene in front of a live audience?IMG_2100
VERY different. I’d done similar scenes for film before and I thought it was going to be a similar feeling, but opening night proved me wrong— I felt so strange while I was doing it. By the second night, I was a lot more comfortable, I knew what to expect and prepped myself for it.

Any funny/interesting moments from your experience there?
In this version of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet have a love making scene after they get married, and my dress comes off. Romeo and I hadn’t rehearsed putting my dress back on before opening night— how hard is it to put a dress on, right? Well, opening night, we could’t get my dress back on! I kept putting my arms into the wrong holes and got stuck in the lining. The play only experienced a brief lull as we struggled to get the dress back on, but it felt like centuries. Thankfully, I was eventually clothed again and the scene continued smoothly 🙂
