About Marika

Marika is a soulful girl with many diverse talents. She loves to act and has performed on camera for film since she was seven. Marika has also performed on stage for our local community in Santa Fe, NM, both in musical theater and ballet productions.

She recently landed the lead in an independent film called The Cat and the Trolls. She will play Siri, the stoic ten-­‐year-­‐old sister in a gritty tale of early 20th century Norwegian life in Montana. Filming starts in spring of 2012. She also filmed a Doritos commercial that was submitted for the 2012 Super Bowl.

Marika enjoys working and developing her talents in acting, dancing and singing. She dances five days a week and recently started pointe classes. She studies acting for film in an adult class three hours every Monday. She sings along with Adele, Bruno Mars, Cee Lo Green and the Beatles and has a clear sweet soprano voice. At home singing accapella, she also tries to sound the tunes out on the piano. She currently studies classical piano once a week.

Marika is openhearted and loves to interact with people and animals. In her free time she loves to ride horses, both English and Western style. She spent her early school years training in both America and England.
