Personal Life of Marlon Wayans
Marlon Wayans was born in the heart of New York City, to mother, Elvira Alethia, and father, Howell Wayans. He is part of a pretty big family, consisting of ten siblings including him.
He is the youngest among all of his siblings, so it can be assumed that he was very loved and cared for growing up. His siblings consist of some pretty popular names such as Keene Ivory Wayans, Shawn Wayans, Damon Wayans, and Kim Wayans.
If ambitious enough, the Wayans family has enough resources and skill to rule the industry with their own family self-production. And it would not be an outstretch to say that Marlon would have a major contribution to it.
Marlon had a longtime girlfriend, Angela Zachary, whom he started dating in 1992. They ended their almost two-decade relationship in 2013.
The couple has two children together- a daughter named Amai Zachery Wayans and a son named Shawn Howell Wayans. Despite many people believing they were married, they were, indeed, never married to each other; in fact, Wayans told in an interview that he has never been married.
It is known that he had been a really close friend of Tupac Shakur, up until the latter’s death. Some of his other friends are Omar Epps, Duane Martin, and Pamela Anderson.
Career of Marlon Wayans
Thanks to the influential family Marlon comes from, he had the opportunity to enter the show business while he was still in high school. His very first role was just of a pedestrian in his brother, Keenen Ivory’s directorial debut, “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka.”
Even though he had an easy way to take, he still started with small roles and gradually walked his way up to bigger roles. He lost two chances to be starred in Batman movies: the first time was for ‘Batman Returns’, where his role was cut off from the film and the second was for ‘Batman Forever’, in which he was replaced by another actor.
He went ahead to be a part of the ‘Scary Movie’ series, which was a worldwide hit. His notable works range from White Chicks, Little Man, and The Wayans Bros to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and many more.
He is known for his quick-witted comedy but he claims with confidence that he is not limited to just that. And he proves that he is not a man of talks by portraying a serious and dramatic role in the movie, ‘Requiem For a Dream’.
