Lifemark Movie Star Shares Personal Story
Marisa Lynae Hampton plays the young Melissa in Kendrick Brothers’ next film, Lifemark. As the birth mother in the story, she tapped into her own mother’s story to audition and to play the role. Marisa Lynae knew her mother, Lisa Marie Harms Hampton, had been pregnant during high school, but just before Marisa Lynae’s audition for Lifemark, her mother shared more details than she’d ever shared with anyone.
This interview with the Hamptons took place at the Christian Worldview Film Festival in early August after Lifemark screened at the festival.
Lifemark will be in theaters nationwide for one week only, starting Sept. 9. Visit www.LifemarkMovie.com for more information and to book tickets.
