This Air Force veteran has acted alongside Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins

They say that acting is one of the hardest jobs to find success in, but not for Skye P. Marshall. She just finished shooting a movie titled "Beyond Deceit" featuring Al Pacino, Anthony Hopkins, and Josh Duhamel.


Here's how she went from serving in the Air Force to starring on the silver screen:

Originally from Chicago, Skye originally enlisted in the Air Force because she needed discipline. After her enlistment at a hospital on Nellis Air Force base, she had no idea how to transition back into civilian life.

She returned to Chicago, determined to get her degree, and graduated with her bachelors in communication with a minor in theater. Since theater had always been a part of her life, she automatically gravitated toward it, ignoring the people who said acting was the hardest career to find success in. She doesn't see it that way. "I think serving in the military is the hardest job," she says.

Five years later, she has acted in major studio films and has no intention of stopping. She has no idea where it'll take her, but as long as she's still having fun, then, "Lights, camera, action."
