Marcia Anne Cross, simply known as Marcia Cross, was born on March 25, 1962 in Marlborough, Massachusetts, USA. She is widely recognized as an American TV actress. A daughter of Janet and Mark Cross, she grew up with her two other siblings in a Catholic environment. After earning a master’s degree in Psychology at Antioch University Los Angeles, she immediately pursued her dream to become an actress. In 1984, she landed a role in the TV mystery series The Edge of Night which afterwards gave her the opportunity to be noticed by directors and producers. She again played a role in 1985 in the TV movie Brass and further gained widespread attention for playing the role Kimberly Shaw in the primetime soap opera Melrose Place together with Thomas Calabro and Josie Bissett. In 2004 to 2012, she made significant appearances in Desperate Housewives where she played as Bree Van de Kamp. The said TV series earned her set of nominations and awards.
Now when it comes to keeping her body naturally fit and healthy, Marcia mixes her workout routine so she won’t get bored. She usually attends Yoga classes, hits the gym almost everyday, walks, and hikes.
When it comes to her eating habits, she says she always avoids foods that may give her the chance to become fat. “Red wine, chocolate, cheddar cheese, oranges. Those are my mainstays that I just really don’t touch,” she shared. “And then being stressed out… I work really hard now so that I don’t stress the way that I used to. I’m not as internally tightly wound as I used to be.”
