Locke spent October 2016-July 2017 traveling across Ontario starring as Marilyn Monroe in the original one-woman show Misfit which included a stint at the Grand Theatre in London and was part of Hamilton Fringe 2017.
Under the umbrella of Lockeport Productions, Locke committed 2018 to adapting Misfit to the screen, now titled Misfit M. (@misfitm.movie). With 100% of the films screenplay taken directly from a letter written by Monroe in 1961, Misfit M. sheds light on a chapter of Monroe’s life from a completely untampered point-of-view; it is literally “written by Marilyn Monroe”. Lockeport Productions gained the rights to this letter thanks to the cooperation of Julien’s Auctions in Los Angeles, CA.
As of August 2020, Misfit M. has been selected to 17 film festivals worldwide including an Oscar-Qualifier in Los Angeles, CA
Misfit M. is the proud recipient of Best Cinematographer, Best Experimental Short and Best Canadian Film from the Canadian Cinematography Awards 2020 and the Award of Excellence from the One-Reeler Film Competition in Los Angeles.
Lockeport Productions second film, 8+ Weeks, premiered with the Canadian Film Fest 2020 and its third, The Smudge (a zero-budget quarantine project), was selected among the top 30 out of over 800 submissions across Canada to air live as part of the Isolation Short Film Festival. It was also an official selection of the Isolation Film Festival in the UK.
Between film projects she works part-time as a commissioned artist specializing in portraits and as a photographer. Her primary passion is with film as an actor and producer.
