Relationship with Emilie Edit

Marc and Emilie met on the set of The Devil's Carnival in 2012. The two were only briefly introduced to one another before having to shoot a scene together - Emilie estimates that they had known each other for "approximately one hour" before they filmed a scene in which their respective roles, The Scorpion and The Painted Doll, kissed.[1]

The two developed a close friendship after working together on the film. Marc subsequently appeared in Emilie's Fight Like A Girl music video. While on set for the video, Emilie uploaded a photo of her and Marc to Twitter, referring to them as "Hollywood power couple, Marcilie."[2] Many fans took this as an official confirmation of their relationship, while others suggested it was possibly a joke, much like how Emilie and Veronica Varlow pretend to be a couple onstage. As of 2020, both Marc and Emilie have yet to officially confirm that they are a couple, however they have been very open about their relationship on social media, often posting photos of them together or each other, coupled with captions speaking very fondly of each other. Exact dates of the beginning of their relationship are undisclosed.

In July 2015, Emilie insinuated on Twitter that she and Marc were engaged, tweeting, "Often wonder if cyberbullies [are] aware they're fucking [with] a girl who's... marrying a knife-throwing scorpion."[3] Fans debated whether this tweet referred to Emilie and Marc themselves, or a possible plot line for their characters in The Devil's Carnival. Neither of these speculations were confirmed nor denied by Marc or Emilie, and as of 2020, it remains unclear as to whether they have been married or not.

Platonic Friends Edit

"Platonic Friends" is a side project started by Marc and Emilie using the aliases "Sharc" (Mark) and "The Admiral" (Emilie). Platonic Friends was said to be a musical project, though no Platonic Friends content other than a promotional photo was ever officially released, suggesting that the band was simply an inside joke between the two rather than a serious project. Though some fans took the band's name in a literal sense and believed it as confirmation that Emilie and Marc were simply close friends rather than dating, others believed it was intended to be sarcastic.
