Margaux Susi is a Cuban-Jewish director and actor from Miami. This means she loves salsa dancing and her mother asks her once a week when she’ll be given a grandchild. Margaux’s most drawn to slightly irreverent comedies that are character driven. If it’s messy, absurd, and punches you in the gut with some truth, Margaux’s your girl.
Her most recent film, THE SPERM BANK, tells the true story of a 23-year-old who, after being diagnosed with testicular cancer, is told to masturbate to protect a future he isn’t sure exists. Sexy, right? With Academy Award-Winning Andrew Carlberg as EP, it’s currently awaiting its festival premiere. Other shorts include the absurd-comedy, SUPER GROUNDED SUPER REAL, which follows a struggling artist stuck in a terrible audition and BIRDS, BEES, & THREES which played at Austin Film Festival.
Margaux is currently directing the second season of the English Dub O CORO SUCESSO for Disney+. She’s directed 4 other international titles for Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu.
Margaux is the Associate Artistic Director of the Ovation award-winning IAMA Theatre Company in Los Angeles where she currently resides. She directed Sheila Carrasco’s (CBS' Ghosts) solo show 'Anyone But Me' for IAMA’s virtual season which the LA Times raved had “stellar direction.”
As a working actor, Margaux can be seen in the Hulu feature, CLOCK, streaming April 28th. You can also see her FX'S BETTER THINGS and Netflix’s DEAR WHITE PEOPLE. Apple TV's CENTRAL PARK, Disney's OLAF'S FROZEN ADVENTURE, and over 30 dubs on Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu.
