About Marquis E.

Acting has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I started out like everyone else, participating in school plays. I then branched out to community theater. Performing had always been my escape. A chance to live another life even if only for a brief moment. My childhood and teen years consisted of performing in a number of traveling shows, festivals and on broadway stages. While attending college, I studied a plethora of acting techniques including Meisner, Stella Adler, Stanislavski, and Strasburg. I utilized these methods as I made my way into film and television. I’ve been fortunate enough to work on some major film (Black Panther 2, Say Less, Behind Church Doors) and television (Power, Gossip Girl, Servant, Swagger) productions. I share a passion for script writing and directing alongside acting. Unlike most acting coaches, I am still actively working in the field. I know that feeling of getting into the audition room and feeling those nerves creep in. I've spent hours upon hours breaking down scenes and developing an emotional connection with my character. I know that feeling of wanting to "get it right". I am right there with you in every sense. Let's work together so you can be at 100% from beginning to end. Our lessons will focus on what you as the performer wish to accomplish. We will come up with game plans for your future while working on your craft. We will work on Audition Prep/Techniques, Scene Breakdown, Demo Reels, Self Tapes, Character Development, Emotional Prep, Headshots, Landing an Agent etc. I can’t wait to see where these lessons take you! My lessons can be offered via the Take Lessons platform or Zoom.

I wanted to get into film acting after doing a lot of theater. I’m learning so much about how different the two are from each other. Definitely will continue lessons

I’m new to acting and was looking for a teacher to help me get started. Marquis is so friendly and fun to work with. He has a lot of information about techniques, acting exercises, websites for scripts and monologues etc. I’ve learned so much and feel like I’ve come so far within the few weeks that I’ve worked with Marquis. He is so patient and thorough with me. I am absolutely going to continue lessons with him. If you’re looking to get into acting or even just get better, I would 100% recommend Marquis! Thank you so much for building my confidence!!
