Occupation: Actress
Biggest accomplishment this year: Co-writing and starring in the Ridley Scott-produced The East

A darling of the Sundance Film Festival, Marling stars in the upcoming film The East, which premiered in January at Sundance and will be released nationally on May 31. It's already received strong reviews and earned the distinction of closing out the South by Southwest Film Festival. She recently appeared in Glamour, modeling several different throwback looks and talking about fishing for food in dumpsters to prepare for her role in The East.
