Marlane is an East coast girl raised in the South, which makes her a fast talking, no nonsense, down home negotiator who knows how to set a mean dinner table. She has made good use of her Scotch-Irish roots, being best known for playing mind-reading Maggie of the Irish coven in THE TWILIGHT SAGA BREAKING DAWN, directed by Bill Condon.
Major television credits include the Barbarella-esque escort Audrey in
MAD MEN opposite Vincent Kartheiser and as a bubbly makeup artist on RAY DONOVAN with Paula Malcomson. She also landed recurring roles on SONS OF ANARCHY as Daddy's girl gone wrong Sandy opposite Katy Segal, mean girl Gracie on THE FOSTERS, and snarky Gladys on MASTERS OF SEX alongside Lizzy Caplan.
Other film credits include Terrence Malick’s THE TREE OF LIFE where she played a magical stone angel come to life opposite Jessica Chastain and the one-shot feature film SOMEBODY MARRY ME with Michael Lerner and Ray Abruzzo where she played an adventure seeking nymphomaniac. SAKE BOMB, which played SXSW, saw her as hipster graphic artist Joselyn, for which she received a nomination for Best Actress from New York’s Winter Film Awards.
Marlane graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, and volunteers in animal rescue through fostering and spreading awareness.
Look for her in the A&E and Lifetime romance series FALL INTO ME available on their site and YouTube!
