Michael Marco > Biography


Michael Marco was born Michaël Joseph Raymond Marco, in Toulon, France. The son of Lyna Pont, a French Navy employee and François Marco, a talented carpenter. His parents are both from Spanish decent.

Marco got bit by the acting bug at an early age while performing in a summer camp play.

He grew up watching American and French classics such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), The Great Escape (1963), Le Samouraï (1967), The Night Caller (1975), The Towering Inferno (1974), Death Wish (1974), Dirty Harry (1971), Buffet Froid (1979), and the list goes on and on...

In the '80s, Marco was lucky to have found a video group in the little town he grew up in, who took a few kids under their wing and gave them proper training in production and post-production. They let the teenagers borrow the equipment and taught them how to work a Umatic editing bench. They started writing and shooting short films.

Marco ended the last year of junior high by acting in the short play "Edouard et Agrippine" de René de Obaldia, a story written with three characters and one location. It was just enough for the acting bug to permanently sink its teeth into him.

When Marco moved to Dallas, Texas in 1993, it was inevitable that he would get into the film and TV business.

Today Marco lives in Texas with his wife Jennifer. He is an award-winning writer and filmmaker, a seasoned editor and a passionate actor... who now produces as well.
