LOS ANGELES (May 22, 2014) – European actress MARIANNE BOURG emerges in Universal Pictures new hit-comedy, “NEIGHBORS,” and in indie-comedy “HELICOPTER MOM,” making its world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival on June 5th.
Currently in theaters, Bourg pops-in as a shopping sorority girl caught in the chaos of the fraternity-versus-family comedy, “Neighbors.” The film stars Zac Efron, Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne and is helmed by veteran comedy director Nicholas Stoller.
Bourg surfaces on the big screen again in the indie comedy feature, “Helicopter Mom,” starring Nia Vardalos as an overbearing mom hovering on everything her son Lloyd (Jason Dolley) does. Bourg steps in as the girlfriend to the popular high school bad-boy who relishes mocking Lloyd every chance he gets.
Also beginning on June 15th, Bourg heads to the small screen as co-creator and star of the magical and mythological web series, “The Necklace of Harmonia.” The series follows the adventures of two unfulfilled friends who uncover an abandoned mysterious box that will ultimately change their lives forever.
Bourg is excited by the opportunity to flex her creative talents in such a wide variety of projects. Bourg explains, “I feel very blessed to get the chance to do what I love to do and I’ve worked with amazing and inspiring people who make me want to give it my best every day. I love to work on a variety of projects, because the reason why I became an actor was to be able to explore human nature in different realities and situations. I feel very grateful for every opportunity I get.”
Earlier this year, Bourg made her feature film debut in, “Wizardream,” starring Malcolm McDowell, and later appeared in the Japanese film, “Gun Woman,” which was recently released theatrically in Japan. In addition to building a strong resume on the indie scene, while earning her MFA in Acting for Film, Bourg wrote, produced and starred in her own short film, “Silent Voices.”
Bourg, a mix of Luxembourgish and French, speaks 4 languages and has been interested in acting and literature since she was very young. At age 15, she joined Luxembourg's National Academy of Dramatic Arts and after graduating high school began studying Business and Finance in France. While in Paris, she took acting classes at the Cours Florent and later studied Classics and Drama at the University of Cambridge before making her way to Los Angeles.
