Born of two distinct disciplines on both screen and stage, aspiring and passionately intrepid actor Marina Ivanovic has struggled with her look due to her Serbian heritage. However, ICACM’s values and diverse industry-led approach have resonated with her.
Marina attained an Advanced Diploma of Theatre and Screen Performance at Sydney Theatre School, which involved devising contemporary and Shakespearean performances. These experiences have pushed her to develop her skills in acting, voice and movement.
Similarly, from NIDA and Screenwise acting courses respectively Marina was able to learn and refine skills in screen performance by working closely with a variety of exemplary professionals. She continues to be active in her pursuit of student and short films, with the aim to break into a larger-scale production. Having been an extra the Home and Away and First Dates set, she had been able to further work and observe acting in the professional context.
Marina is currently co-hosting a radio show The Madhouse on 100.1fm, where she has had great opportunities in interviewing, hosting and discussing pop culture. One of the highlights of this experience was interviewing Australia’s current talent in the music industry at the Arias on the red carpet.
Marina is excited and determined to not only strengthen herself but also hopeful in changing the rules of the game in this entertainment industry.
