Born and raised in the small-town of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Marie grew up fishing, hunting and camping. Her first break in the entertainment industry came as a result of her favorite hobby, playing drums. While studying broadcast journalism in Ontario, a friend alerted her to a casting call in Vancouver for a clothing commercial which was looking for drummers. The opportunity landed her an agent and after appearing in various national commercials she caught the eye of director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter, Rent) who hired the budding actor in her first feature role for I Love You, Beth Cooper. Although her thriving career has garnered her a lot of attention as of late, Marie continues to prove that she hasn't forgotten her small town roots, often riding her motorcycle and playing with her 100lb bullmastiff in the rugged west coast wilderness when she's not on set. She recently completed working on the feature Live With It opposite Seth Rogen and working in her native BC outdoors in the thriller Hunt To Kill playing Steve Austin's daughter. Marie currently splits her time between Vancouver and Los Angeles.
