Interesting Facts

1 Has naturally curly hair.
2 Her favorite movies are The Godfather (1972), Urban Cowboy (1980), An Officer and a Gentleman (1982), Terms of Endearment (1983), and Life Is Beautiful (1997).
3 The role of Gina Kincaid on Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990) was written specifically for her in mind and created by Aaron Spelling.
4 Signed on to take a regular role on NYPD Blue (1993) in that series' 9th season (2001-02) as Det. Carmen Olivera, a newly promoted officer who was being pushed aside at another precinct by sexist, racist, and just plain stupid male superiors, and who would join the 15th Precinct after impressing them on a case. However, after Marcil filmed her debut episode (which aired as the 2nd part of a two-episode season premiere in November 2001), the producers and cast agreed the part wasn't working and dropped the story thread in favor of bringing in another young Latina detective in a later episode (who was played by Jacqueline Obradors). Marcil did return for one episode to play Det. Olivera in Season 11 but did not interact with any of the regular characters nor return again after that.

1 What makes a woman beautiful is her loyalty to and her friendships with other women, and her honesty with men.
2 I balance things better and don't kill myself so much, but conflict makes me a more interesting actress to watch. The places I go to pull emotions from, I think if you have a perfect, happy life, you just don't have those places. And I want those places. I'm proud of those places.
3 I'm not ready to be a woman yet. I'd like it if my body were more boyish. Maybe I'll like my curves when I'm older but right now they kind of make me squirm.
4 I don't know any woman who doesn't have an anxiety attack about wearing a bathing suit. I was on the show (General Hospital (1963)) for two years before they got me to wear a bathing suit and I almost had a heart attack the whole time.
5 "Acting probably saved my life. It gave me a home and a safe place to let out all of my emotions and have it be OK." - in having it be an outlet.
6 "Because of my crazy work schedule, I have become something of a master at changing my clothes while driving. The men driving next to me love it." - on driving to work while changing clothes.
