Marianne Jean-Baptiste

Happy Birthday to

Marianne Jean-Baptiste

43 today

Marianne started in the Mike Leigh ensemble, first on stage then setting the screen alight as the optometrist searching for her birth mother and finding Brenda Blethyn in Secrets and Lies. Since then whilst she's continued to perform in both mediums (as well as releasing a Blues album) her Television career has been the most succesful, garnering acclaim for her work in the CBS series "Without a Trace". And no Takers is not something I'm looking forward to.

She was so excellent in Secrets & Lies, and the thing is she still falls as my #4 of that year (#3 of the lineup). 1996 was a good year for film.

Probably the best year of the 90's, with consistent good quality product.
