Actor and Activist
Marque Richardson is a high energy, multi-faceted actor, writer, and producer. Moreover, he is a citizen of the world, who uses his art as activism. Richardson answered the call of TV and film at an early age. A stronger call guides his vision as both a person and a performer – the call of community…
Recognizing his gift, Richardson’s parents moved the family from San Diego to Los Angeles so the prodigal young talent could begin a career in acting. While pursuing a successful career, Richardson attended USC on a full scholarship from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation graduating with degrees in business, public policy, planning, and management.
Some of his numerous television credits include: recurring roles on HBO’s The Newsroom, True Blood and previously filmed guest star roles on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Anger Management, Community and was a series regular role in Amazon Studio’s pilot Browsers.
Marque appeared in HBO’s adaptation of the Tony-winning Robert Schenkkan play, All The Way. Directed by Jay Roach and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, which stars Bryan Cranston (President LBJ), Anthony Mackie (Dr. Martin Luther King), Melissa Leo (First Lady Byrd), Frank Langella (Sen. Richard Russell), and Richardson as Civil Rights leader Dr. Bob Moses.
Richardson recently wrapped production on Inheritance, a thriller from director Vaughn Stein starring Lily Collins. Richardson can also be seen on the upcoming TNT drama series Tell Me Your Secrets. Richardson will play Tom, an honest Louisiana cop who forms a close connection with Emma (Lily Rabe). Richardson was also in Netflix’s Step Sisters, the sorority comedy from Drumline helmer Charles Stone III, Straight Out of Compton producer Matt Alvarez and recent Emmy winner and creator of The Chi, Lena Waithe.
