Actresses » Merissa Porter

Merissa filmed her first commercial in her teens and soon secured a role in award-winning short film "Tube Poker". This was followed by a number of music videos, most notably the lead role in The Streets' "Blinded by the Lights", directed by Adam Smith.

After being offered a recording contract, she then spent the next several years in the music industry, most recently co-writing a track for Saint Etienne. She always yearned to return to acting however and was soon cast in a number of high-profile commercials.

She has enjoyed a recurring role as lead character "Shadowstar" in online action-heroine series "Next Global Crisis" and has also starred in a number of short films, including "The Mousetrap", due for release later this year. Her first feature film, "He Who Dares: Downing St Siege", was released in January 2015.
