|Occupation||Screenwriter, television producer, television writer, actress|
Marcel has played minor roles in television series such as The Bill, Holby City, and Casualty. She had a largely non-speaking role as Young Vera in the 1994 television film adaptation of A Dark-Adapted Eye.
Marcel eventually quit acting to pursue writing, while working part-time in a video rental shop. Her first writing job to appear in public was doing uncredited re-rewrites of the 2009 Bronson, she knew Tom Hardy because he was running an acting workshop at a pub around the corner and the two have remained friends (one of his tattoos says "Skribe", a tribute to Marcel). Marcel was writing for five years before Terra Nova was picked up after an extensive bidding war between production companies.
Marcel is credited for the screenplay of the 2013 drama film Saving Mr. Banks, "a behind-the-scenes look at how the popular Disney film Mary Poppins came to be," starring Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as P.L. Travers.
