Think you know Obsessed with Disappeared co-host Ellyn Marsh? Think again. From her Broadway debut to the first time she met co-host Joey Taranto, we think you'll love learning these five facts about one of our own favorite podcasters, Ellyn Marsh.
Ellyn made her Broadway debut in the 2010 play, Enron, a show based on the 1990s demise of a Texas energy company. The show also featured Broadway powerhouses Norbert Leo Butz (ask her to tell you the story of Norbert almost drinking her breastmilk that was in a Snapple bottle - long story) and Marin Mazzie. It was a brilliant flop that closed WAY too soon. Ellyn's next foray onto Broadway was in Priscilla Queen of the Desert.
Ellyn was an original company Tony and Grammy Award-winning Broadway musical, Kinky Boots, even coming up with a name for her character, Gemma Louise. She understudied several roles, including the lead character of Lauren, the hilarious love interest pining for Charlie Price while helping him run his factory. If you saw the show throughout the 2010s before its closing, you likely saw Ellyn onstage in one of several roles. You can also catch her on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and Tony's from that year - look for the MULLET!
BFF Joey Taranto
"Jooooeeeeeyyyy! Honestlyyyyy!" Ellyn met her Obsessed with Disappeared co-host, Joey Taranto, while performing in Kinky Boots. That musical run cemented this pair's long-lasting friendship, one that has led to a true-crime-podcasting-takeover.
In case you didn't know, Ellyn has over 3.4 MILLION likes on TikTok. Her hilarity is not bound only to the podcast. On TikTok, Ellyn reviews absurd Facebook marketplace apartment listings, exposes reality television, and even clap-backs at unfortunate haters. For a dose of hilarity and charm, follow Ellyn on TikTok @ellynmariemarsh.
One of Ellyn's favorite Instagram past-times is roasting her pre-teen daughter. The hilarity that ensues while her daughter tries to avoid her mother's attempts to put an Instagram filter on her in the backseat of the car? Priceless.
Ellyn's love of science and taking care of people always led her to answer the question, "What would you be if you weren't an actor?" with A NURSE! But like, not a regular nurse... a cool nurse.
