About Marissa Siegel▼
Born and raised in LA, Marissa always felt the desire to move to NYC and this past January, she finally made the move. Marissa grew up as a dancer and actress (on stage, in musicals), but also loved writing and directing which gave her an interest in casting. Marissa went to UC Santa Cruz and ended up leaving to finish with a BA in Film Production at Cal State Northridge, where she produced an avant-guarde short. Throught college, she had many internships in production offices like Joel Silvers' and David Dobkin's. After college, she worked as a PA on the Paramount Lot for a Nickelodeon series called 'Instant Mom' starring Tia Mowry. Marissa was on and off set all the time and loved being with the cast. She ended up becoming their head of social media and taking all of the BTS and set photos. After that, she worked at United Talent Agency for a partner in the motion picture literary department where she worked on assignments for movies like 'Straight Outta Compton', 'Hidden Figures', and 'Fifty Shades of Gray 2 &3', since they represented the writers, directors, and producers of those films. An agent was never something that she imagined becoming and working there for a year proved that so she ended up interviewing with the one and only John Papsidera (DUNKIRK/All Christopher Nolan films, WESTWORLD, etc) who gave her a job as the casting assistant on S4 of 'Ray Donovan.' From that point on, Marissa stayed with John, worked on a ton of projects both in film and tv and he taught her so much of what she knows today. He was Marissa's mentor along with many of the other employees in his office. It was the best experience and since he is like family to Marissa he was the one who helped push her to take the leap and come to NYC; thus, here she is today!
