Holly Beavon
Marilyn Monroe Impersonator

Called “Incredibly Credible” by the San Diego Union-Tribune, Holly Beavon has been a working professional Marilyn Monroe tribute artist her whole adult life; entertaining corporate and private audiences worldwide while also portraying Marilyn in over 60 film and TV projects. Jared Leto declared her work “perfect” in his star-studded long-form music video “City of Angels”. The Lifetime film “Beautiful and Twisted” featuring Holly as Marilyn, premiered in January 2015, followed by two more music videos by International artists, an extended profile in the periodical “Art Decades”, a billboard in San Francisco, and shooting for photographer Phillip Ritchie’s new book, inspired by Bert Stern’s “The Last Sitting”.  On July 24, 2015, Adam Sandler’s new Columbia Pictures film “Pixels” will premier, featuring Holly as the voice and mouth of Madonna.  Holly’s work has garnered several awards, including the professional tribute artist industry’s “Reel Award”, earned her a place in numerous books, and inspired three recorded songs. She does all of her own voice work, from video games and radio performances to recording with a 32-piece Latin big band orchestra.

Holly has a B.A. in Theatre from Indiana University, and thanks to Marilyn, never needed a backup career! She performs in a wide range of acting roles besides Marilyn, but the thousands of jobs and crafting her own hand-made replica costumes and wigs keep every moment filled. She loves her home base in Hollywood, as well as the opportunity to make appearances at the same sort of charities and events that Marilyn herself made, on the same historical streets. “It’s a privilege to carry on a small part of Marilyn’s tradition, her efforts as an early feminist, humanist, and portray her struggle as an icon of femininity.” Holly cares very much about the truth of Marilyn, and hopes this documentary brings insight into the convoluted mystery of her death.
