Life & Work with Marissy Brightman

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marissy Brightman.

Hi Marissy, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
It’s crazy to think that my story has led me to this point in my life. It’s been a tough journey navigating this world, but I continue to dream big! This acting career was a newfound passion that I discovered after four failed colleges & pointless student debt. I fell in love with the craft and the idea of storytelling and I can’t see myself doing anything else. My recent project, Against the Ropes, is a story that I can relate to closely. I was once an early teen, discovering my sexuality, going through a tough time but I was resilient when it came to passions of mine. Being seen as an LGBTQ idol is truly humbling and I believe my younger self would be super proud.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Both of my parents passed away 15 months apart when I was 22. It changed everything.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I love being creative. From acting on camera to photography & art. I love it all! It’s how we stay individually unique but connected at the same time.

We’d love to hear about how you think about risk taking?
Risking it leads you to opportunities. You need to take a leap of faith and believe in everything you’ve got.
