DRIVEN by stories of resistance and romance, Mari Joy is a Chicago-based Filipino actress.

She was born in Manila and recently graduated with a BFA in Acting from BYU. 

Mari Joy has several credits in both theatre and film. Notably, the Narrator in Every Brilliant Thing (Vicariously Staged Productions), Lark in the premiere of MESTIZA, or MIXED (Plan-B Theatre), and Erica in the short film POOLSIDE INN (premiered at the Palm Springs Film Festival).

Telling stories through screen, stage, and voice-over is her greatest privilege. In her spare time, you will find her singing, being a hopeful romantic, and eating rice.

Mari Joy is currently represented in the midwest by Shirley Hamilton Talent (600 N McClurg Court, Suite 311A, Chicago, IL 60611).
