About Me

About me. Close-up photograph of Marie Cooper
Marie Cooper – 2017

I am a bouncy, thrill-seeking introvert, with levels of optimism that have been known to get me into a pickle. I love pretending to be other people for a living, on stage and within public spaces in and around the beautiful city of Norwich.

I’m an actor with an almost unbelievably eclectic background. Maybe I should write a book about it all one day, preferably before I forget everything. Although, it might already be a little too late.

I am strong believer that life is too short and sometimes you just need to jump off a cliff and build your wings on the way down. I am currently in the process of writing my own dramatic work for the stage, which I hope to produce next year.

I feel privileged and lucky to have had the opportunity to train with some amazing people from:

Theatre Royal Norwich
The Royal Shakespeare Company 2016
John Wright Clowning School
Empty Vessel
Chalk Circle Theatre Company
Access Creative College
Theatre Fragile

Cast role – play training service

Some of the organisations I have performed with:

Berlin’s TheatreFragile at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival
UEA’s MA Scriptwriting Showcase
NUA Student filmmakers
Hack Theatre Scratch It
The Common Lot
The Slow Theatre Company

Sewell Barn Theatre
The Great Hall Theatre Company
The Maddermarket Theatre’s Mad24

Norwich Spooky Parade

If you need an actor/performer for your project or you would like to know more about me, please get in touch. I love my work and I hope that this is apparent in the energy that I bring.
