Marilise is joyously returning to her first love: acting. Think Patricia Clarkson or Laura Dern, with Maggie Smith eyes. Marilise transmits deep emotions with ease and grace, igniting viewers’ compassion. Recent training includes ongoing scene study and on-camera skills. While on hiatus from acting she worked to preserve indigenous peoples’ cultures and languages with the American Indian Institute in Bozeman, Montana, and the Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community in Fonda, New York.
