Marking her TV debut, Marisha will be starring in season 2 of Feel Good alongside Mae Martin and Lisa Kudrow which lands on Netflix on 4th June. As a positive person off screen, Marisha will be playing her evil alter ego Marsha, the villain of the series, a big departure from the roles Marisha is used to playing.
She’s topped the music charts with her cover of Annie’s Tomorrow, released at the peak of the pandemic to raise funds for performers out of work and been playlisted on Radio 2 with her singles and subsequent album Tomorrow. Marisha will be taking the album around the UK this September with the Tomorrow Tour.
Born and raised in North Carolina, Marisha is immensely talented. From performing for the Queen at the Royal Variety Show 2020 and fronting a Charlotte Tilbury campaign to her album becoming Radio 2’s Album of the Week, Marisha is the woman to watch this year!
