Marin had a lot to learn from her auditions and all the roles that she played. She admits that each role is different and challenging, but it seems like she is a woman who challenges. Marin mentions in an interview: 

“I lean into whatever is given to me. Because so many times it’s so different—if it’s a play, you usually have so much more material to work with. If it’s a pilot audition, you have just dummy sides that aren’t even part of the pilot. I gather as much information as humanly possible. I’ll look up every single person involved to get a sense of what the tone might be. You can feel very disassociated from a couple of sides, so I try to find a way into whatever the world is.” 

Marin has quite a bit to take from her role in ‘On the Exhale.’ She mentions, “When you go back and forth between theater and film and TV, people will ask if you prefer one over the other, and I always feel like they are complementary. In the theater, what I continue to do helps reminds me to stay in the moment exactly where I am on the day when doing TV and film. The most important thing is to be present at the moment on the day.”
