Success as an actor requires more than talent alone. It requires a sincere commitment to ongoing development and the will to work every day. This work ethic is paying off for Marc Senior. It’s taken him far: from Humber’s Theatre Arts – Performance program to countless television and film sets. We spoke with the 2007 grad over email to hear about his current projects and how Humber helped him prepare for life as a professional.
I currently star in a movie called In God I Trust that is circulating in the film festival circuit. We’ve screened at the Whistler Film Festival, Omaha Film Festival, European Independent Film Festival (ECU) in Paris, France, and Beverly Hills Film Festival in Los Angeles. The next screening will be at the Stony Brook Film Festival in New York in July 2019. Beside the film, I have an upcoming role in the new season of Murdoch Mysteries, which I start filming in a couple weeks.
Since I graduated Humber, I’ve been in a number of projects. Notable television credits include Sammy Davis Jr. on NBC’s show Timeless, Victor on CW’s hit show Supernatural, and a recurring role on ABC’s The Whispers. Other memorable television appearances include The Magicians (Syfy), Supergirl (CW), Arrow (CW), and Alcatraz (FOX).
My time at Humber prepared me immensely. It helped give me the discipline that is required for this industry. Being able to get up and work on my craft six days, even sometimes seven days a week, was something that was needed. The faculty who I had during my tenure at Humber Theatre Performance really pushed me to be the best ME that I could be, which I can confidently say isn’t the case with most other programs at the time.
