Rachel Marcus as:
Rachel Marcus played ‘Booky’ in Booky and the Secret Santa, the second installment of the Booky movies. It was her first television role and Rachel will reprise her role as Booky for the upcoming third film Booky’s Crush. Rachel received a Gemini nomination for her role in Booky and the Secret Santa.
The role of ‘Booky’ was written for Rachel . . . or so it would seem. Positive and determined, the two have a lot in common. Booky and the Secret Santa was Rachel’s first professional job – a result of her first ever audition, and her determination to break into “the business.” Rachel has had a phenomenal time filming Booky and the Secret Santa and Booky’s Crush and is looking forward to whatever wonderful things may come in her professional acting future.
While she’s waiting for that next job to come along, Rachel dances competitively and has received such awards as ‘Best Overall Mini Soloist,’ ‘Best Junior Stage/Musical Theatre’ and ‘Overall Winner, Jr. Musical Theatre,’ to name just a few. Rachel has always had the acting bug and has participated in a number of school plays, including Alice in Wonderland and Honk. Rachel also loves to watch Musical Theatre, with her favourite to date being Wicked, and she enjoys playing soccer, volleyball and singing. Rachel lives in Thornhill with her mom, dad and big sister Hailey.
