Marion McDowell is a freelance scriptwriter from Juneau, Alaska, where the rugged weather gave her a deep desire to not be out in it, and where better to enjoy the warm and dry than the local cinema? After a foreign exchange to Northern Ireland in the 90s turned more permanent, she developed as an actor and writer within the local film and television industry.
Recent works include DARK & STORMY, a comedy horror about a woman who refuses to play the victim, and COSTUME DRAMA, which explores what happens when you insult a witch on Halloween night. Marion stopped answering questions about her age when she hit 35 and lives in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
