I'm an award winning actor, director and creator of original work for stage and screen. And a fierce activist for women and artists with disabilities.
I get down to both juicy dramas and the quirkiest of comedies. And I go nuts for all things sci-fi and the great female transformers like Carol Burnett, Tracey Ullman & Gilda Radner.
 
Cast her, represent her, write for her, meet her, find out about her, she played Master Flower in the Magic Theater production of my play “The Lily’s Revenge” and was a total dream to work with. Definitely one of my favorite actors (and she didn’t even ask me to write any of this).

Marilee Talkington in the press:


... the cerebral and sexy Marilee Talkington, who segues virtuosically between roles, including that of a brain surgeon.

Talkington more than holds her own. She’s equally believable as shy pre-debutante and as a disillusioned suburban housewife.

Theatremania.com: The Middle Ages, TBTB


What makes this production remarkable is the performance of Marilee Talkington. Talkington [has] phenomenal skill as a physical comedian.

Huffington Post: The Secretaries, Crowded Fire


... names like Trump and Fiorina are bound to spring to mind - It’s a tribute to Talkington’s persuasive, committed performance that she comes off as empathetic as often as she does.

San Francisco Chronicle: Little Erik, Aurora Theater


Talkington... commanding the stage in the role of a brain researcher for two incisive, disturbing lectures on the topic... And she executes a bully cameo as Teddy Roosevelt.

San Francisco Chronicle: X's & O's, Berkeley Rep


Marilee Talkington’s frazzled, forceful performance embodies a restless intelligence and sexuality wrestling with an existential crisis of self-doubt.

Mercury News: Rapture Blister Burn, Aurora Theater


Marilee Talkington offers an emotionally grounded, generous performance as Nic.

NYtheatre.com: A Nervous Smile, TBTB


Talkington captures the nuances of her character, her non-verbal reactions speak volumes.

Theatremania: A Nervous Smile, TBTB


Talkington is Sublime... Powerful... Hyper-Sensual... Hilarious... Mature and graceful.

NYtheatre.com: TRUCE, Solo Show (22 characters)


Talkington is an astonishingly deft performer.
