RAIN FULLER as Mary Morriss
Rain Fuller portrays Mary Morriss.
Rain Fuller’s childhood habit of impersonating everyone pushed her into acting. Sadly, her heart broke when her first small role on Heartbreak High didn’t end by riding into the sunset with her teen idol Callan Mulvey. After several years she recovered and went on to act in, as well as write and produce, an eclectic range of projects.
Rain has played lead roles in three feature films. The award winning dramedy Pretty Good Friends has had a VOD release in the USA via Roku and a limited cinema release in Australia. A Skype audition landed her in India to shoot international movie Project 103 on the banks of the Ganges River.
Other feature film credits include the female lead in existential drama Experience the Knowing, supporting lead roles in Australian bushranger film The Legend of Ben Hall and award winning comedy Sizzler ’77. Rain co-wrote, co-produced and starred in the short film, Deep-Seeded, directed by veteran TV director Nicholas Bufalo.
Small screen work includes co-creating bizarre sitcom Pickled Prozak, the finals of Theatre Games Live!, and kids TV show Wicked Science. In 2015, Rain co-created and starred in wacky comedy Two Refugees and a Blonde and played a ‘ball busting’ First Assistant Director in comedy web series Waiting on Sound, produced by The Legend of Ben Hall’s Jessica Pearce and distributed by Film Ink. She also shot a guest role on Neighbours, airing in Australia and the UK in 2016.
Theatre credits include Wuthering Heights (Australian Shakespeare Company), The Sinoatrial Mode (Red Leap Theatre Company, Auckland), The Perfect Garden (First Room Theatre Guild, California), Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus (Four Letter Word Theatre), Angels in America (Chapel Off Chapel), Hamletmachine (Broken Mirror Productions), TIE Victorian Tour with Knockabout Theatre, Uncontrollable Performance Art Moments (Fairfax Studio, Arts Centre Melbourne) and a caboodle of other independent theatre works performed in underground car parks, galleries, mechanics institutes and old factories.
Rain holds a Bachelor of Communication, a Diploma of Anthropology and has worked professionally as a production associate and copywriter. She trained as an actor at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne Actor’s Lab and with the renowned Eric Morris in LA. Dialect coaches Anna McCrossin-Owen and Bob Corff find her impersonations get in the way a bit.
Rain grew up riding horses in the Victorian bush and dreaming of the days of bushrangers and bush dances. So she was a little more than excited when asked to be a part of The Legend of Ben Hall.
