Coach: Marcia Bennett

Marcia is a busy, well respected actor, mentor and coach with memberships in ACTRA, CAEA, SAG-AFTRA and AEA. Marcia earned a BA and a Masters in Theatre before starting her professional career at the historic Barter Theater in Abingdon, Va.

With over 148 credits, she has experience in all genres of film and TV; plus a keen ability to deconstruct a script and prepare auditions (both in-person and self-tapes). Most recently, Marcia can be seen in episode 1 of THE LAST OF US (Mrs. Adler, the neighbor), Guillermo del Toro’s CABINET OF CURIOSITIES (The Murmuring), CHUCKY (Season 2, The Sinners Are Much More Fun), MRS.
AMERICA (Dadie Stewart). She is especially grateful for the opportunity to have played the role of Neil Armstrong’s mother in the award winning short film ONE SMALL VISIT, (Produced by Coffee Partners Media) which has been screened around the world, won Best Short Film at the LA Shorts Festival, and has been shown at such prestigious places as NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC and NATO in Brussels.

Marcia’s training, love of language, innate curiosity and appreciation of the writer’s intention ensure that no actor leaves a session confused about the script. Marcia has a proven ability to help actors dig deep for truths and bring their own
personal stamp of creativity and authenticity to auditions and performances.

"It’s a pleasure to be part of the Baumander lineup of excellent coaches and teachers."
