Brit Marling stars in "Babylon" on SundanceTV as Liz Garvey.

Brit Marling can be seen in Daniel Barber's "The Keeping Room," co-starring Hailee Steinfeld, Muna Otaru and Sam Worthington, "I Origins" with Michael Pitt, and AJ Edwards' "The Better Angels," opposite Diane Kruger, Wes Bentley and Jason Clarke, as Abraham Lincoln's mother. Marling was also recently seen starring in Zal Batmanglij's "The East," also featuring Alexander SkarsgÄrd and Ellen Page. Marling co-wrote and co-produced this film, which marked her re-teaming with Batmanglij. Additional credits include Robert Redford's "The Company You Keep," co-starring alongside Redford, Shia LaBeouf, and Stanley Tucci; as well as Nicholas Jarecki's financial thriller "Arbitrage," co-starring opposite Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon and Laetitia Casta.

In 2011, Marling made an indelible mark at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival as the first female multi-hyphenate to have two films premiere side by side. Marling's first feature length narrative film, "Another Earth," premiered at Sundance in the U.S. Dramatic Competition category. Directed by Mike Cahill, Marling starred, co-wrote and co-produced the film. Her second feature length film, "Sound of My Voice," premiere at Sundance in the Next category. Directed by Zal Batmanglij, Marling starred, co-wrote and co-produced the film. Fox Searchlight acquired both films following the festival premieres, and released them in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Brit was nominated for Independent Spirit Awards for both films in the categories of Best First Feature (alongside Cahill, Hunter Gray and Nicholas Shumacher) and Best First Screenplay (alongside Cahill) for "Another Earth," and for Best Supporting Female and Best First Feature (alongside Batmanglij, Hans C . Ritter and Shelley Surpin) for "Sound of My Voice."

Marling's foray into filmmaking started during her college years at Georgetown University, as she began writing and starring in projects on which her friends were working. This introduction led Marling to take a leave of absence from school, moving to Havana, Cuba, to co-direct the documentary "Boxers and Ballerinas," which followed young artists and athletes living in the communist country. Marling graduated from Georgetown, having studied Economics and Studio Art. Her work experience included a stint as an investment-banking analyst at Goldman Sachs. Realizing that acting and filmmaking was what she found most fulfilling, Marling followed her passion and moved to Los Angeles, where she currently resides.
