Her Broadway performances include An American Daughter. She has done a few guest stints on television shows such as Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Homicide: Life on the Street. Marvel also co-starred in the 2001 film Ten Hundred Kings. She was born in Los Angeles and raised in Pennsylvania. Marvel attended high school at the Interlochen Art Institute in northern Michigan, then moved to New York, where she currently lives.
