Mariesa Crouse began her acting career at a young age in Vancouver, Canada, booking numerous commercials that played around the world. By the age of 13, she was immersed in training, and ready to take on larger roles. After being cast in a lead role as Twin 2 in the award-winning short film The Letter Carrier, written and directed by Jesse L. Martin and Rick Cosnett, Crouse began to believe that you can achieve anything you put your mind to - a rule she follows to this day. Credits include Hallmark Channel’s final season of “Chesapeake Shores” as Margaret Keller and the network’s “Just One Kiss,” “The Good Doctor” (ABC), “The Flash,” “Riverdale” and “Legends of Tomorrow” (The CW), “No Tomorrow” (Netflix), and “Freaky Friday” (Disney).
Aside from acting, Crouse is a model with several major campaigns in Canada for luxury clothing brands Aritzia and Oak + Fort. She is also a professional dancer with a repertoire including jazz, musical theatre, contemporary, lyrical, hip hop, tap, acrobatics and ballet. In 2017, she achieved the milestone of joining Vancouver’s top professional hip hop company TwoFourSeven and went on to win third place at the VibeXXIII championship in California, first place at World of Dance and were finalists for the “America’s Got Talent” auditions. Crouse has also worked in the world of choreography as a company manager for Canada’s largest live exhibition, and as assistant choreographer for The CW’s “Riverdale.” Her dance training has contributed to the strong work ethic and determination needed to be an entertainer.
Crouse is a dual citizen holding two passports and is able to work in both Canada and the United States. Her truest inspiration is her mom, who raised her and her two siblings as a single parent. She sees the strength, perseverance, agility, and passion it takes for a woman to strive for success in any aspect they wish to achieve. Crouse looks up to her older brother, a professional baseball player, like a father figure, and enjoys spending time with her family getting out of the Vancouver rain and watching late night baseball games, cheering him on.
