Marica Barandyai-Rani, born in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, is an actress, and singer of Romani origin.

Biography[edit]

Early life[edit]

Manoush was born in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer as the third child of a mother of Manouche romani and Persian Kolie roma origin. She was raised in Haarlem, Noord-Holland, Cologne, Germany and Biel, Switzerland. At the age of 18, Manoush began modelling, but her career stopped short at age 20 after a car accident left scars on her stomach and legs.[1] She immigrated to the United States a couple of years ago.

Movie career[edit]

She began to get into film in the summer of 1998. In 2000 was offered the role of the “nymphomaniac" in Jean-Pierre Jeunet´s Amélie, which opened many doors in the film and TV industry for Manoush, as well as establishing her as “the bad girl” in the roles she played.[2] Manoush often gets credit as an action and horror actress or as a professional for roles which can be intense and difficult to play.[3] In 2004 she played fighter Carda in Angel of Death 2, closely followed by films such as Timo Rose’s The Legend of Moonlight Mountain (2005), Marian Dora’s Cannibal (2006), Timo Rose’s Barricade (2007), and Andrey Iskanov’s Philosophy of a Knife (2008).[4] She won Best Supporting Actress in 2011 at the PollyGrind Film Festival in Las Vegas for her role as Olga in The Super.

Music career[edit]

She started out as a cyberpunk singer. Besides her acting and writing career, she worked as a singer of the band Cyanide Savior alongside her husband, Chris Vazquez.[5]
