Timothy Guion Smith
Typing my bio in third person for a project you have already gleaned I am spearheading feels weird. I'll try first person!
NEXT OF KIN marks my first time directing.
Although LA is my current home, my real home will always be NYC, where I was born at Staten Island University Hospital (yes, we used to drop my mom off at the Staten Island Ferry to the tune of Carly Simon's Let the River Run for her commute) and went on to receive my BFA in Drama from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.
As an actor, previous credits include multiple New Media Series and Short Films that have played at film festivals throughout North America, Europe, and Africa--including Nashville FF, Shriekfest, and Rincón International FF. Previous stage: INCITATION TO DANCE at Theatre West in LA and originating the role of Toddy in the then Broadway bound musical AMAZING GRACE. Absolutely thrilled and honored to be sharing a story near and dear to my heart. Endless gratitude to the rest of the NOK Team.
Film & TV: Pam & Tommy (Hulu), Griselda (Netflix), Commencement (Prime Video), Shatter Belt.
Broadway & National Tours: Miss Saigon, Les Miserables,
The King & I, Jesus Christ Superstar.
Regional: Mamma Mia, Assassins. She has also performed at Carnegie Hall, Disney Concert Hall and The Apollo Theater.
Grateful for Timothy and the cast & crew of Next Of Kin.

Hailing from the West Coast of Scotland, Marcus is based in LA.
A graduate of The Juilliard School’s Drama Division (Group 43), Marcus is queer, quirky and has a tongue that’s often too quick witted for his own good. Previous TV: Ensign Harris in AMC's TURN: WASHINGTON'S SPIES and ABC’s pilot reboot of GET CHRISTIE LOVE. NY Stage: Pan Asian Repertory Theatre (Lost In Shanghai), the Yangtze Repertory Theatre (Romulus the Great), The Little Orchestra Society at BAM (Peter and the Wolf).
Previous short film projects: Linnea Sage's, I LOST MY WIFE, a teaser trailer for Stinger Pictures' HARRIET'S WORLD. THE LAST CHECK and AKING DAVID HARPER'S ACTOR REEL.
I have always loved acting since I was young. In college I chose Acting class and Play Production as my electives.
Previous Film: Ama. Ina, Anak, Pagdating ng Panahon, and Basta't Kasama Kita. TV: Guest Star in ABS-CBN's Maala-ala Mo Kaya "Agiw"
In the Philippines, I was also an executive in a big company. When I came to LA, after retirement I had the chance to pursue acting once more. I am so blessed that at this stage of my life, I’m finally doing the job that I love most.
