Marci Michelle grew up surrounded by the stage and screen. Her grandmother, Charlotte Peters, starred in a variety show from 1947 to 1969 and was dubbed the First Woman of St. Louis Television. Her father, Mike Peters, is a Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist and creator of the comic strip, Mother Goose & Grimm. Sunday afternoons were regularly devoted to black and white movies and she claims "The Women" as one of her favorite films.
After graduating from Ringling School of Art & Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Marci found her way to CA by way of a family friend and immediately fell back in love with being on set and all of the processes of filmaking. Starting out as a background actor and stand-in, she quickly became a member of the SAG Union and fittingly her first SAG job was as on the movie "Looney Toons: Back In Action" which was endearing to her as the late cartoonist Chuck Jones had been her father's mentor.
In May 2010, Marci wrapped her 6th season on the television show "24" as the series completed its 8 year run. This was one of the most rewarding and educational experiences of her time in the entertainment business. Working with dozens of actors and learning their different techniques of preparation equipped her with an arsenal of experiential knowledge and a deep appreciation and love for the craft. She likens the experience of film making with that of fine art as it is all about the process. And since this processual idea drew Marci initially to a degree in art, it was only natural that she found a home in the film industry for the last decade.
After spending time with Marci, it is apparent that her warm and energetic demeanor sums up her positive outlook on life. These attributes combined with her love of the theatrical process ensures a naturally productive working environment with actors.
