    Sadly, Marie Cooper is currently unavailable for unmasked acting work for the immediate future, due to a severe dental issue that needs to be fixed. This has been a devastating career blow, just as things were improving post-lockdown. She does not know when the issue is likely to be fixed and is taking it incredibly hard. Updates will be published to this page and social media channels as and when available.
