Today I am very excited to introduce a brand new feature on my blog entitled “You A’da Know…” where I introduce you to someone in the entertainment industry that I feel is doing exciting things.
For our debut segment, the spotlight shines on actress, fashion blogger and my best friend, Marika Casteel. Marika is a working actress based in the San Francisco Bay Area. After paying her dues and cutting her acting chops in Los Angeles, she has enjoyed a career in the Bay Area market doing commercials, industrials, voiceover, television and film.
Last year she had the pleasure to work on two critically acclaimed features – Steve Jobs, a biographical portrait about Apple founder and tech giant Steve Jobs starring Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen and Jeff Bridges, directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin. The second, Swiss Army Man is a unique buddy film starring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe, directed by Daniel Scheinert and Dan Kwan (winner of the Directing Awards at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival), which opens widely in the United States today, July 1!
Join me as I talk to Marika about her start in acting and the incredible experience of working on Swiss Army Man and attending the Sundance Film Festival.
