Q & A
What's your favorite kind of project to work on?
MARISA: I used to only want to do comedy, but personal tragedy has sparked a need for emotional roles - its cathartic for both the audience and performer.
I think the industry is moving towards more complex, interesting,
& diverse female roles, and I am here for it!
What are your favorite characters to play?
I like a smug, smart, sarcastic character. I think they have the most secrets. I also like being messy!
There's a lot of freedom in not having to look "perfect."
What would some dream jobs be?
Performing as the lead in a comedy feature - Love at First Spite - is a dream come true. We're still shooting, but it's mostly in the can. If I die tomorrow, no one can ever take that away from me.
Who would you love to work with?
It'd be fun to work with Amy Schumer.
(I was her photo double once! Maybe we could play sisters?)
Also on my wish list: Paul Feig, Mindy Kaling, Elizabeth Banks & Snoop Dogg.
What are some of your favorite movies?
The Trial of the Chicago 7, Mean Girls, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
and I could watch Across the Universe everyday.
Favorite TV Shows?
The Sex Lives of College Girls is my new, literally laugh out loud favorite.
Black Mirror is revolutionary, I’d love to act in an episode.
Then of course High Maintenance, Broad City, and you can't forget
the classics, Arrested Development & The Office.
Thoughts for 2022?
My mantra this year is "Only More" -
More water, more creating, more laughs, more adventure… lets do it!
