Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Marla: (on starring as the bride-to-be in Big Day) I always fell through the cracks and kind of got by, never got asked any questions and that was fine with me. But it's a whole different experience. I'm definitely a little terrified but I'm more excited.

    • Marla: (on the therapeutic aspect of writing music) It's very therapeutic and I feel like most of those songs (writing them at least) helped me get through said breakup. It gave me something to do besides cry!!

    • Marla: (on moving on to more adult roles after Whatever It Takes) I'm pretty sure this is it for the teen movie thing. It's so frustrating to read when you get to page 20 and you're like, Oy! It's the same thing again!

    • Marla: I think that's just how girls are. We have that maternal nature where we just want to fix everything and be there for everyone.

    • Marla: (on going from a drama to a comedy) I definitely felt like I wanted to do more comedy. It wasn't something that, as far as TV goes, I'd really touched on. Aside from a handful of guest appearances. Because I was on a show that was so serious, people really kind of pigeonholed me into that a little bit. I wanted to break out of that mold.

    • Marla: (on her screen kiss with Dylan McDermott) I was 17 and scared out of my mind. But after the fact, I was like, 'Yeah, I kissed Dylan McDermott.'. Now I feel pretty cool about it. It's way better than even going to the prom.

    • Marla: (on her work in commercials) I did spots for McDonald's, Pop Tarts and Golden Grahams. The last one was the worst. By the end of the day, I was like, 'Please don't give me even one more Golden Graham. I've eaten 10 boxes!'. For a couple of years I couldn't look at the box in my grocery store without getting sick.

  • As talented as she is gorgeous.

    Starting her career on family oriented comedies such as "Boy Meets World", "Step By Step" and "Full House", it might have been easy to write Marla off as just another teen actress. Fortunately, there's more to her than those shows might have led us to believe. In addition to more mature roles in "The Practice" and "Desperate Housewives", Marla has also emerged as a singer/songwriter worth watching. She released her debut album, Grateful, in February of 2006 and has plenty more on her plate.

    I became a Marla fan after catching the Film, Sugar & Spice (2001). Her portrayal Lisa Janusch was played with a perfect combination of spunk and spite. She also proved how fantastic green eyeshadow can look done correctly.

    Marla's star is rising, yet she stays grounded. As long as she is acting, writing and performing - she can count on at least one fan.moreless
