Marisa Duran


Hey there, I’m Marisa Duran. I’m an actress and model working and living in Dallas, Texas.


I caught the "theatre bug" at a young age. My parents will tell you that it started when I was two years-old, dancing around to the Barney theme song. I agree wholeheartedly.

I grew up in a suburb on the east side of Dallas and was fortunate to have the opportunity to explore a city known for its rich culture and artistic influence. My passion for theatre was fueled by the many musicals that toured through town and I quickly decided I wanted to spend the rest of my life pursuing a career in acting.


Let us read and let us dance. These two amusements will never do any harm to the world.

- Voltaire


In 2016 I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas with my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre, emphasis in Acting. 

Art has the power to heal, to change, and to empower. As an artist, I believe that my purpose on this earth is to tell stories, and through these stories I hope to make a positive impact and leave people better than I found them. I consider it an honor to be able to use my talents in such a profound way.

Whenever I’m not in rehearsal or performing on the weekends, you can usually find me playing video-games or hanging out at a local coffeeshop with a cup o’ joe and a good book. 


much love,
