MORE ABOUT MARCELLE
Born in New Orleans and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Marcelle was a sad and lonely kid, struggling to find something she was passionate about. Her love of the arts began at the age of 10 when she was asked to be a part of a new Broadway musical's first reading in New York and was given the honor of playing young Judy Garland and young Shirley Temple. Right after returning home, Marcelle auditioned for a community theater production of "Annie," booking the lead role of 'Annie,' because of her singing and dancing abilities. LeBlanc then began studying acting with Meg Deusner to fully bring the character of 'Annie' to life for the audience. Marcelle's life would never be the same going forward, as she then began to land roles in productions of "Peter Pan," "The Music Man" and "Gypsy," making authentic friends and finally feeling like she belonged somewhere. From that point on, Marcelle went on to pursue a career in the arts.
Marcelle found early success in the industry, transitioning from the theater to both television and film. LeBlanc booked her first professional role on Netflix's hit series "Stranger Things." Additional credits include playing 'Dana Gaines' in the CBS television series "Criminal Minds," 'Josephine' in the film "Union," 'Cassidy' in the ABC pilot "False Profits" and 'Becky Thatcher' in "Super Science Showcase."
Marcelle is an advocate for arts education and founded a nonprofit, "S.T.A.R.S," at only 14 years old. "S.T.A.R.S" is a scholarship program that works directly with the Alabama Arts Alliance to create opportunities for kids from all backgrounds who want and need access to after school arts programs. She is also passionate about finding a cure for Polycystic Kidney Disease and has helped raise funds for the cause.
When not acting, Marcelle loves embarking on adventures and discovering new places around her home state. With her roots being in musical theater, she loves music; especially Broadway, with her dream role being 'Christine' in "Phantom of the Opera." LeBlanc is inspired by Meryl Streep and Barbara Streisand for their versatility in the industry, as well as her mom, who is her biggest supporter. Marcelle is set to attend college at Auburn University this fall, majoring in accounting.
