A little bit about me:

Marion McDowell

Marion McDowell is a freelance scriptwriter from Juneau, Alaska, where the rugged weather gave her a deep desire to not be out in it. After a foreign exchange to Northern Ireland in the 90s turned more permanent, she developed as an actor and writer within the local film and television industry.

Recent works include MUSHROOMS, a revenge drama commissioned by RTÉ and Northern Ireland Screen for the 2019 season of Storyland, THE SUMMONING, a 2022 NI Screen-funded comedy in which a D&D group try to summon a demon and get both more and less than they bargained for, DARK & STORMY, a short comedy horror about a woman who literally refuses to play the victim, and THE WILD SIDE, a supernatural crime drama series centred around a cross-border wilderness trust.

Marion stopped answering questions about her age when she hit 35 and lives in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
