Marie-Noelle Marquis (born January 29, 1979) is an French-Canadian actress. She is 5 ft 7 in (1.70 m) tall.

At an early age, she started performing and exploring a variety of artistic disciplines, from classical ballet to painting until she joined a music conservatory high school and studied clarinet for five years. Upon her high school graduation, she decided to focus her artistic energy on theater, a passion in her life for many many years. She joined the theater arts program at St-Hyacinthe College near Montreal and completed her college studies at John Abbott College the following year.[1]

After studying theatre in college, she moved to Los Angeles and attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, graduating with honors in 1999. While she was still at the Academy, she landed her first lead role, starring in the short film "The Kiss".

Since then she has been performing as an actor in film and theater and has worked on a variety of voice-over projects for the French and the American market. She recently completed her first feature length screenplay The Letter, which she co-wrote with her mother, French-Canadian writer Helene Carle.

She established Maywell Pictures, a production company dedicated to original projects, "not only for herself but also to give a voice to filmmakers around the world who might not have access to proper resources". The new company is hoping to co-produce The Letter as its first project.

At the end of 2007, Marie-Noelle launched Save a Snowman, a non-profit organization set up as a snowmen orphanage, which develops green environmental projects throughout the world. Money is raised through snowmen sponsorships and adoptions, allowing "new parents" to correspond with their own snowmen, "thus understanding climate change from an altogether unique point of view".

Marie-Noelle is currently working on the upcoming web-series After Hours, side by side with actor Steven Allerick. The project "offers an unflinching glimpse into the human condition", and "promises exciting new acting challenges".

She is still a member of Playhouse West-School and repertory theatre. Better known for her stage work than her films, she is fluent in both French and English.
