Marianne Farley : Marilyn
By the time she was 19, Marianne Farley knew her career would take place under the lights. She recorded an album in Quebec from which several songs made the Top 10. In the wake of this achievement, she recorded an adaptation of her CD, Histoire Sans Prénom, for the French market. But acting had always been her passion, so she decided to focus her energy on becoming a film actor. Her talent was quickly recognized. Farley began with parts on shows for young people like “Big Wolf on Campus,” “Vampire High” and “Seriously Weird.” Then, being fully bilingual in English and French, she became a librarian in “Macaroni Tout Garni,” a very popular children’s show. Following this, she had a starring role in the thriller “La Peau Blanche” (“White Skin”), which won the Best First Feature Film Award at the Toronto Film Festival and the Claude Jutras Award at the Genies.
Following this success she landed major roles in “Les Invincibles” and “Nos Étés,” two prime-time series in Québec. In the U.S., she played in “The Dead Zone” and had supporting roles in TV movies “Forbidden Secrets” and “No Brother of Mine.” Farley can be seen in the upcoming series “Le Gentleman,” where she will play the lead female character. She will soon begin work on “Les Lucides,” a Quebecois feature film.
Farley has also produced four short films.
