We are delighted to announce that Marcus André will soon be playing the role of FRED in TVI’s new TV series “Vida Louca” by Rui Vilhena.
“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!”
HOW THINGS HAPPENED...
Marcus André is the stage name of Marcos André Marçal Araújo, born in Portimão, Portugal, son of Bela Araújo, a library technician and Nuno Araújo, head of a car workshop.
Marcus spent most of his childhood living with his parents until he moved to Lisbon at the age of 15, in order to become a professional actor. He graduated professionally at the age of 18 and did his first television appearance at the age of 16 in the “Jura” for SIC.
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”.
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 (known for “The Lion King” musical). 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.
In recent years, Marcus has worked on several music projects, such as “GodSpell”, “The Legacy”, “The Wiz”, while joining castles in the film and television industries in the UK. Having also spent two years in Berlin, within the framework of laboratory theater in Grotowsky.
