It may have been Natalie Eva Marie’s bright crimson locks that first drew the WWE Universe to her attention, but this American actress, entrepreneur, influencer, and athlete has even more fire to her than meets the eye. Growing up in Northern California, the Latina former model traded in the runway for the wrestling ring and was drafted by WWE’s Smackdown LIVE in 2013. Her journey through the ranks of the WWE Divas division’s main roster as a Superstar was first chronicled on the hit E! reality series, Total Divas. There, she navigated personal and professional obstacles to become the premiere “heel” of the women’s division in the WWE, stealing the spotlight and becoming a fan favorite to millions of people.
Natalie shifted focus from full-time wrestling to work on the big screen, and in 2017, audiences saw Natalie in Randall Emmett’s produced Inconceivable, opposite academy award winners, Nicolas Cage and Faye Dunaway. She then wrapped Awesomeness Films’ Action #1 for Peter Principato and YouTube Red. Natalie has also appeared in cameo roles for television shows such as Entourage, CSI: New York, and 90210.
In 2019, Natalie secured a series regular role opposite Bella Thorne in the television show Paradise City while starring on CBS’ Celebrity Big Brother.
In 2020, Natalie returned to work with Randall Emmett in the film Open Source starring opposite Bruce Willis.
Not only has Natalie proven to be a multi-hyphenate star in film, television, and sports, she has amassed a huge online following with 6.1M followers alone on Instagram and a social footprint of over 12M on all social platforms.
When Natalie Eva Marie is not filming, she is working on her business ventures as a beauty and fitness expert, along with her philanthropic endeavors. She launched NEM Fashion, a brand created and inspired by empowered women, for empowered women in 2016. In alignment with Natalie’s passion for fitness, she came on as the female face of Reign Body Fuel (by the Monster Beverage Corporation) and spearheaded the marketing launch of Reign globally.
Recently, Natalie ventured into ultra marathon running, solidifying her status as a World Class Elite Athlete. A testament to the power of unwavering dedication, this multifaceted entertainer and entrepreneur demonstrates anything is possible with hard work and determination.
