Actor MARC FAJARDO Supports Helen Mirren in Touching Feature Film ‘THE LEISURE SEEKER’
Releasing in Theaters March 9, 2018
LOS ANGELES (January 3, 2018) – Actor Marc Fajardo lends his support to Helen Mirren in the new touching feature film, THE LEISURE SEEKER, releasing in theaters nationwide on March 9, 2018.
From Italian director Paolo Virzi, THE LEISURE SEEKER follows an aging married couple Ella (Mirren) and John (Donald Sutherland) as a runaway couple escaping their overbearing children and doctors on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call ‘The Leisure Seeker’. Fajardo steps into the storyline as Terry, a campsite employee who helps Ella in more ways than one.
Fajardo was thrilled at the opportunity to work with the heralded Helen Mirren, who recently earned a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in the film. He shares, “Her presence was calming and angelic. She made me feel at home. It felt like she was taking care of me, making sure I had a mango sorbet to mentioning to Paolo about my ‘cute reaction’ from one of her lines.”
Up next, Fajardo will appear opposite Amandla Stenberg in the drama feature, THE HATE U GIVE. Directed by George Tillman Jr., the film tells the story of a teenage girl who witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Fajardo steps in as a cameraman who escapes a roaring protest of the shooting.
In addition, Fajardo is already set to appear on the small screen twice in 2018. First, portraying a key video game designer on Alan Ball’s highly-anticipated new HBO series HERE AND NOW; and then as a hotel clerk on USA’s true-crime anthology series, UNSOLVED: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious B.I.G
Fajardo has been building a solid resume in Hollywood. Fans will recognize him from his recent role as an escaped prisoner that smuggles exotic turtles in CBS’s new cop-drama, S.W.A.T. His television credits also include appearances on Lady Dynamite (Netflix), It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FXX), CSI-Cyber (CBS), Pretty Little Liars (ABC), and Sleepy Hollow (FOX) among others.
This Filipino-American was born and raised in Los Angeles. He earned degrees in Film and Community Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and while attending also choreographed and danced with the hip-hop dance team, Haluan. After moving back to LA, he set his sights on acting and it didn’t take long for the industry to take notice. In his free time, he also enjoys shooting and directing his own independent projects; and training in House, Hip Hop, and gymnastics.
Marc Fajardo is represented by DDO Artists Agency.
