McAllen-born "Twilight" actress visits Action 4 Sunrise

On Friday, Action 4 Sunrise welcomed Marisa Quinn, who will be playing "Huilen" in the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

She is a Rio Grande Valley native from the city of McAllen and found her passion for acting right here at home.

Marisa was in theatre at McAllen Memorial and was involved with a few productions at UTPA before she made her move.

This is her biggest role to date and her character in the film changes everything in the final installment of the movie.

She has a great story of how she is working her way to the top and gave some great advice to aspiring actors here in the Valley.

If you'd like to hear from Marisa, she will be telling her story and give you insight on how to land an agent and book a job at the TSTC Cultural Arts Center in Harlingen.

She'll be appearing on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 2:15 p.m. and there is a $5 admission fee.

Meet and greet opportunities will immediately follow and free autographed pictures for the first 200 guests will be handed out.
