Mary is a talented filmmaker and multi-hyphenate whose most recent short film, "Pink Trailer," premiered at SXSW in 2018. The short earned rave reviews from numerous outlets. She previously created and starred in her web series "Wacko Smacko." The series garnered acclaim online, leading to a licensing deal with Ripple Entertainment. For a year "Wacko Smacko" lived on Snarled, Ripple's YouTube channel for bold and unapologetic young women, with over 500,000+ combined views. As a writer, Mary has previously been selected as a finalist for the Academy’s Nicholls Fellowship. And as an actor, Mary was most recently a part of MGM's re-imagining of the classic 80s hit VALLEY GIRL | Watch "Pink Trailer" here!
For its annual "Women in Television" issue, Porter magazine sat down with Ellen Pompeo, Gabrielle Union, Gina Rodriguez, and Emma Roberts. THESE. LADIES. ROCK. They talk about race, the pay gap, and fighting for equality. Notable mentions include Gabrielle Union telling a story of banning together with her friends to get someone a higher salary. Also, shout out to Ellen Pompeo who showed what it means to be an ally to WOC by telling a director she wanted the crew to "look like the world I walked around in every day," advocating for a diverse crew. She went on to say, "it's our job, it's our task, it's our responsibility to make sure we speak up in every single room we walk into. It's our job, because we created the problem." | Watch their discussion here!
