Miss Benny On Netflix’s Glamorous
On Netflix’s Glamorous, Miss Benny portrays the role of Marco Mejia. The program, which will debut on Netflix on 22 June 2023, features all the cliches you’d anticipate from the adored genre: When Marco accepts a job working for a makeup tycoon, he must negotiate office politics while, of course, falling in love.
Marco is an immigrant attempting to make it in New York City. But if nothing went wrong, it wouldn’t be a romantic comedy. Marco’s path in the makeup industry hasn’t been easy, what with mistakes at work and miscommunications with his coworker and love interest. Marco fails, but Miss Benny’s moving performance makes them enjoyable and upbeat.
Miss Benny sat with Them and shared their experience doing the show. They told the outlet that they did the show because the Netflix show “really spoke to me because it was the first time I had been sent a script that I saw myself in.” They had received several scripts before with little witty one-liners but “it was rare that I got to see a show with a full range of experiences that a queer young person gets to have, and specifically a gender nonconforming person. So when I got the call about the script, I remember thinking, This has to be it.”
When it comes to playing Marco, Miss Benny said, “It was a healing and cathartic process for me to play Marco, because there’s something that happens when you are somebody who grows up with access to the internet; you feel such a sense of cultivating a personality while also developing your own personality.”
“In my experience, I would put on this vibrant persona and then I would turn off the camera and [feel] so heavy about what was going on in my life. Those moments were very real to me. There are moments in the show where Marco’s life is kind of unraveling, but Marco still has to keep the show going on and still make content, “They added. “And I think the beauty community on YouTube and on TikTok is going to giggle at some of the fun references we put in the show about the platforms.”

They opened up about their childhood and discovered non-conformity with Out magazine. They said, “There were a lot of small discovery moments leading to one big “a-ha” moment. As a kid, I loved playing dress-up in princess clothes with my sisters and having (temporary) permission to embrace my femininity in a safe space. When I was around eight years old, I grew my hair out past my shoulders and tied it up in a ponytail. By 10, I was having my friends pull “pranks” where we pretended I was a girl when we would meet up with the other boys in the neighborhood.”
The added, “Eventually, I was locking my bedroom door at night and putting makeup on and lip-syncing to Marina and The Diamonds. I think the big moment came when I was watching an interview with Courtney Act where she dropped the word “genderqueer” casually. It led to me researching videos about gender and being introduced to the concept that identity isn’t so black-and-white, but instead exists on a spectrum. And feeling somewhere in the middle is so much more understandable with that concept in mind.”
Speaking of sisters; records online reveal that they are named Hannah Pierce (32 years old) and Haley Pierce (29 years old). However, these details are yet to be confirmed.
