Episode 152: Young Breadwinner

My guest in this episode started working right around the time most of us started school. Marie was just five years old when her acting work began supporting her entire family. But as she got older she noticed all the best parts were going to the boys, while the roles she was getting relied on her looks. Her dreams of continuing in acting were dashed when she realized what she was expected to do to get better parts.

Today she has a totally different career, but she’ll never forget what show business taught her - about professionalism, teamwork, and sexism.
