Rumor has it that the popular actor might be gay – it began circulating the internet only because of the fact that Marc doesn’t usually talk about girls, and is rarely seen in their company – he hasn’t commented on the rumors and therefore nothing about his sexual orientation can be claimed with certainty.

He is rumored to have dated an actress whom he worked with on the set of the “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” in 2015, however, neither of them have addressed the rumors, and so judging by his social media accounts and his secrecy, Marc is currently single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have kids.

Marc is mainly focused on his acting career, but there are still things he enjoys doing in his free time.

Marc is very keen on keeping up with the latest fashion trends, and often uploads pictures of his clothes onto his Instagram account – he started his career as a model, and would eventually like to become a popular model as well. He’s not much of a traveler, but has still been to several US states and visited Europe in 2020.

Marc was very sporting in high school, as he played both baseball and football but stopped once he matriculated – today, he only watches sports games on TV, and occasionally live at stadia, and has a couple of training sessions at a local gym. He is a big fan of winter, as he’s an avid skier, while he also snowboards. Marc likes cars, especially vintage, but nevertheless prefers to use a bicycle to get around the city.
