How Natasha Marc Is Breaking Barriers And Becoming A Household Name

Born and raised in poverty in New Orleans, actress Natasha Marc always knew she was destined to live her dreams in Hollywood, and after the unfortunate disaster that was Hurricane Katrina in her hometown, she quickly packed up her bags and left for Los Angeles, California.

With her dreams in mind, Natasha quickly got a team around her that believed in her vision, and then found success appearing on countless television shows such as The Rookie, The Good Lord Bird, Timeless, Ballers and Days of Our Lives. But it is her new Paramount+ show, Mayor of Kingstown, that is truly bring her name to the spotlight, and one in which she is breaking barriers and showing all what she is truly made of.

We spoke with Natasha about it all one-on-one…

1. How did you first get started in entertainment?

I got my “first big break” as a kid in grade school doing plays. My first play was The Wizard of Oz and I played the Good Witch. From there I went on to doing local beauty pageants and fashion shows around New Orleans, my hometown.

2. Beyond acting, what are your other passions?

My other passions are fitness and health . I also love fashion and actually have launched a mens’ clothing line before and I would definitely like to relaunch a fashion line again in the future.

3. How do you feel you have “disrupted” the entertainment industry in a positive way with your roles and take on them?

I feel I have “disrupted” this entertainment industry in a positive way by my roles simply by being an example. I am living proof that someone who was raised in poverty with a speech impediment and with no means of getting say a Juilliard or Yale degree can absolutely live the life of their dreams. Taking on roles that are challenging but also validating to the work I’ve put in thus far is rewarding.

4. What types of productions and types of stories do you want to star in going forward?

I would love to star in productions and stories with a wide range of versatility… from romantic comedies to Marvel blockbuster films and everything in between – I want to do it all!

5. Who has been your favorite person to work alongside over the course of your career thus far?

That’s a tough one , who has been my favorite person to work along side thus far… hmmm I don’t have a most favorite. I can honestly say each person whom I’ve worked along side has given me so much insight and depth to my own artistry. I’m such a student at heart I love to observe and learn. I have so much gratitude to be in the position to do what I love next to people who have inspired me for years.

6. What trends in the entertainment industry do you see happening?

I’m not sure if this is a real trend or not but I see I a lot of people starting families and living full, rich lives outside of the entertainment industry as oppossed to before where it seemed that everyone allowed the industry to dictate their life decisions. I’m grateful to be here now as I plan to have a balanced life and this seeems more possible now that ever before.

7. What is your advice to young actors looking at making the move to Hollywood?

My advice to young actors is to know who you are as a person first. Don’t be a follower, read a lot of self-help books to develop a strong mental and self-esteem foundation, and study your craft constantly. It is not easy and you will face rejection, so you have to have thick skin and be able to handle everything that comes along during the journey of trying to make it. Also save your money you will need it!

8. What do you hope people remember you and your body of work for when we all look back in the future?

I hope people remember me and my body of work for having fierce integrity with such empathy that you love to watch the characters I portray and be drawn to seeing me on screen. I also hope I’m known for who I am off screen and that my faith, dedication and work ethic result in positive “disruptions” that are a part of global changes for the better!
