The school is known for producing several well-known actors including James Norton and Alan Rickman. During an interview with The Theatre Workshop she said, “When I got the call from RADA… well… I just cried! Sounds awful but this is everything I’ve been striving for in the last two years. This is the end goal I’ve been thinking about. I had always pictured the phone call and thought maybe I could say something intelligent and interesting but…no, not a chance! Just blubbering on my end as soon as I realised it was a ‘yes’.”

4. She Loves To Be Active

Marisa is the kind of person who isn’t afraid to break a sweat and she’s always looking for new ways to stay active. Like most people, COVID-19 left her with a lot more time at home, and she decided to use that time to teach herself how to surf and to take up long distance running.

5.  She’s Always Wanted To Get Into TV

Marisa began her career in theater, and the stage will always have a special place in her heart. At the same time, however, she has always dreamed of breaking into the TV world. But she could have never imaged that her first year in TV would be as big as 2020 has been for her.
