“When Showrunner Miranda Spigener-Sapon contacted me about working on Marisa Romanov, I initially dismissed it...I get a lot of offers for parts that either don’t usually pan out or are badly written/produced that I tend to pass...This time the script is great and Miranda is a great producer/showrunner...I’m excited to begin,” states Elias Toufexis.
