“When Marcus said to me – I didn’t choose to be an actor, I was born an actor! – I didn’t believe, but as soon as he stepped on stage, I knew exactly what he meant!”

Carlos Pacheco


Marcus André was born as Marcos André Marçal Araújo in Portimão, Portugal, the son of Bela Marçal Araújo, a librarian technician, and Nuno Gonçalo Varela Araújo, a workshop car supervisor.
He spent most of his childhood living with his parents and left home at the age of 15 to pursue his career in acting. He enrolled at the Professional Theatre School of Cascais where he graduated at the age of 18 and got his Straight/Physical Acting Diploma.
Soon afterwards Marcus joined a professional theatre company as a resident actor and director assistant. In the meanwhile, he played various roles in several Portuguese TV productions including popular TV soaps such as Morangos Com Açucar and Jura.
At the end of 2012, the young actor decided to take the leap and move to London where he joined the dance company NuTempo directed by the choreographer Everaldo Pereira.
In the following year, Marcus won a place at KSA Performing Arts and graduated in 2015 with a Professional Musical Theatre Diploma by the Trinity Guildhall College London.
Marcus completed his BA (Hons) Professional Practice in Arts, at Middlesex University London and has since been developing new projects in the industry.
