Marisa Tomei Biography

A fine Hollywood figure who really knows how to deliver strong plus memorable performances that people always could cherish of, Marisa Tomei obviously has all the qualities needed to brightly establish herself to be one of the highly lauded actresses of her generation. Born to an Italian-American family on December 4, 1964 in Brooklyn, New York, Marisa is the only daughter also the eldest of two children of an English teacher named Patricia and Gary A. Tomei, a trial lawyer. As her parents both were very devoted to their professions, she then was partially raised under the nurture of her paternal grandparents, Rita and Romeo Tomei, when they all moved to Midtown shortly after the arrival of her brother Adam in 1967. It was in this nerve center of New York City that the girl finally could experience the wonder of acting upon attending a Broadway production entitled "A Chorus Line" at the age of 12 to thus flourish an abundant yet profound fondness for the field within her heart.

Decided to give up her initial ambition to be an archaeologist thereafter, Marisa persistently nurtured her desire to act during her teens, looking for auditions on local papers outside of her studying activities at Edward R. Murrow High School. All of these efforts delightfully were proven worthy indeed for she later managed to land her first screen role in CBS' long-running daytime soap "As the World Turns" by 1983, yet it on the other hand ultimately prompted her to give up her study at New York University, which she attended briefly after her high school graduation. More stints came up afterwards, notably that as regular cast member in NBC's sitcom "A Different World" from 1987 to 1988. A pleasing spin-off of "The Cosby Show", the program wonderfully was able to earn a good portion of audience's attention and so gave the beauty enough exposure to get the third billing in "My Cousin Vinny" (1992) opposite Joe Pesci.
