Marian Sorensen is the type of actress who takes every opportunity and turns it into gold. With her beautiful smile and sparkling eyes, Sorensen’s growing body of work reflects her ability to play all kinds of roles, from sweet ingénue to seductive villain.

Sorensen starred in the leading role of the critically acclaimed indie feature THE DAUGHTER, where she won the Critic’s Choice Award for BEST ACTRESS at the WorldFest- Houston International Film Festival. “Sorensen packs a punch often unseen with independent film. Her performance is gritty, heart-felt and pops off the screen,” Nick Nicholson, CNN.

The Daughter has been distributed worldwide and is available on iTunes, Amazon, VUDU, and Google Play.
