THE POLKA KING
Born in Boston, Marilyn has made her career as the lead's chatty BFF, full of sunshine & laughter -- until she burns you with shade.
Marilyn just wrapped the supporting role of "Nina" in the feature film CODA opposite Marlee Matlin and directed by San Heder and filmed a recurring role for the Apple TV+ series DEFENDING JACOB with director Morten Tyldum.
On her comic turn as "Sheila" in Netflix's THE POLKA KING opposite Jenny Slate, producer David Permut has said, “your comic timing and the grounded nature of your performance is simply flawless.”
She is known for her portrayal of exhausted new mom "Betty" on Showtime's BROTHERHOOD opposite series regular Kerry O’Malley.
She played power player "Nance" in the all-female mafia film WISE GALS and hostage "Rosalind" in retro heist film VAULT opposite Theo Rossi.
Marilyn stared in live theater, performing throughout the East Coast, including world premieres at The National Black Theatre Festival to Providence's Perishable Theater, Alias Stage, 2nd Story Theater and staged readings at Trinty Rep and others. Recent stage credits include performances with Burbage Theatre Co. and the award-winning Newport Playhouse & Cabaret Restaurant.
Real-life experience as a mom of three boys has given her the patience of a saint and the resilience of a prison guard.
