On a quest for the passionate romance that can only come from an immaculately coiffed superstar of daytime TV, Odette! dreams of shacking up with heart-throb Ridge Forrester from The Bold and The Beautiful. After her shock elimination from the 2019 annual B&B super fan championship competition by a trick question in the first round, Odette! has broken into the final and pushed her way to the head of the queue, determined to be the first to catch Ridge's eye. With an arsenal of ideas to win him over, indomitable optimism and an everexpanding baby bump, her dreams seem within reach. Until Brian, her jilted ex-lover, appears.

A hilarious new song-fuelled character comedy about dreaming big and falling hard, Odette! was nominated for the FRINGE WORLD Best Comedy Award 2018.

Born and raised in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs, Marina Margarita studied at the Actors Centre Australia and at French comedy and theatre school 'Ecole Philippe Gaulier'. She's worked in London for more than a decade as an actor, singer and deviser.
