Marley confronts the baker in Olfactory Collection

Hi, I’m Marley McKay, I’m 15, and from Reston, Virginia. I haven’t done as much theatre work as I have TV and film but it’s all very exciting. I’ve been in The Music Man at Washington’s Atlas Theater as Winthrop, and also in A Christmas Carol at Ford’s Theatre as Young Scrooge and other roles which was quite an honor.  Last fall I played young Josh in Big, The Musical, at Adventure Theatre-MTC.  Aside from theater, I’ve been in a History Channel miniseries called Men Who Built America. My most notable film role to date has been as Nate in The Lovely Bones, directed by Peter Jackson.  I have worked since age three doing print work, film, television and voice-over work.

My background has taught me to:

  • Study and rehearse roles from scripts in order to interpret, learn and memorize lines, stunts, and cues as directed.
  • Work closely with directors, other actors, and playwrights to find the interpretation most suited to the role.
  • Interpret roles and portray characters using speech, gestures, and body movement in order to entertain, inform, or instruct radio, film, television, or live audiences.
  • Collaborate with other actors as part of an ensemble.
  • Sing and/or dance during dramatic or comedic performances.

Take a look at some of the projects I have worked on and, while you’re here, download my resume and headshot.
