What others who have worked with me/seen me perform have to say.

"There was something extremely endearing about this film and a lot of that was down to the superb Mary Ferrara and her on-screen chemistry with Davidson Calfee, Mary Ferrara was actually superb and earned herself a round of applause here at the 13Horror.com office."

(From a review of the short film Cold, a Rosebud Studios production)

"The nefarious angle comes from how the priest deals with their daughter in front of the parents (solid performances by Mary Ferrara and Michael Coppola respectively)..."

Andrew Moore

(From a review of the short film The Priest, a Manguetown Pictures production)

"...Ferrara does well as the voice of reason, counter balancing her sister’s manic behavior."

“Mary was a pleasure to work with, her screen presence is amazing. She did so well on the first film that we brought her back to work on a second one. She's truly a wonderful actress!”

Isabel Garcia

Filmmaker, IG Media Productions

“I hired Mary for a student film I was directing, and not only was she smart, capable and organized, but she brought her own creativity to the part that made it a joy to work with her. I found that Mary put all her energy into delivering the material to the point where I minimally needed to direct her. She would be a welcome addition to any team!”

Sean Huck

Filmmaker, New England Institute of Art Film Dept.

"Mary is a great person to work with on any production and casting directors, directors looking to improve the quality of their films should consider her for their projects.”

Andres Sanchez
