Marcus Patrick born in Bath, England, is an actor. His father was of English, Irish, and French descendance. His mother was born of Jamaican, Cuban, and Cherokee descendance. He is the middle child and has two sisters.
Despite a tumultuous childhood which is another story for another time, Marcus excelled in piano, voice, gymnastics and swimming. He also took up Tae Kwon Do, and became the Junior and Men’s Heavyweight champion.
For a while, Marcus was intent on becoming a professional fighter, but then realized that his violence was fueled by a history of physical abuse, and decided he could fight no longer. Instead, he turned to singing, and at the age of 17, he auditioned with Simon Cowell of American Idol fame, and toured in a boy band until he was 20, at which time he went solo, with Simon acting as Agent and Manager.
As a result, Marcus pursued the dream of coming to America and supported himself as a Personal Trainer as he started taking acting lessons. He finally started booking roles via Eric Morris, and he was on his way.
Arriving Los Angeles, he continued perfecting his acting and met up with Gar Lester of JLA Talent, who saw the potential in Marcus to become something truly substantial. Together they have built up quite an impressive resume including several feature films and TV guest star appearances including Dirty Laundry; Beyond the Break, CSI: Miami. Now Marcus has landed the role of Jamal Cudahy on ABC-TV’s All My Children.
Marcus has also several projects on the works to be released in 2007: The Inevitable Undoing of Jay Brooks as Michael; Love… & Other 4 Letter Words as Rene and Descent as Adrian.
