Marisa Ramirez originated the role of Port Charles's newest teenager, Gia
Campbell in July 2000. Marisa's career began when a Polaroid photo of the
then 13-year old landed in the hands of a major Los Angeles modeling agency.
Within two years, Marisa was working almost every week as a print model and
commercial actress, where she had the opportunity to travel to places such
as Singapore, Australia, South Africa, Hong Kong and Italy.
The self-professed shy girl began taking acting classes, and began booking
guest roles on such television shows as "Days of Our Lives," "The Bold and
the Beautiful," and most recently, "Roswell." She also served as host of
"Senseless Acts of Video" on MTV.
Marisa lives in the Los Angeles area and enjoys spending free time with her
friends and family. "I'm not a party girl," explains the mature 22-year old
young actress. "I like baking cookies and playing dominoes."
