Marisol Came Out Strong Each Time…
You may know Marisol for her success but behind that success is a heartbreaking story. But, the “Riverdale” actress has come out strong even after suffering many scars. In an interview, she explained that she was gang-raped at the age of 11. After spending years in an emotional downward, it was the Church of Scientology that saved her.
Marisol has spent years volunteering her time to work with law-enforcement groups to help catch paedophiles and human traffickers in various sting operations. As for her acting, she typically plays either a parent pimping out their child or an underage girl who comes across as drugged and sheepish. “The voice. When she gets on, it’s over,” one officer explained. He was part of the sting operation in a midwestern city, which later yielded a dozen arrests.
If you don’t know this, In 2012, as her career slowed down, Nichols began working with former FBI and CIA agents, Navy SEALs and Green Berets, as well as local law enforcement who have left government agencies and gone independent to help trap child sex predators.
She acted as a “bait”, playing whatever role the situation called for, such as pretending to be a parent who was pimping out a child. She collaborated with the nonprofit organization Operation Underground Railroad and travelled globally to work for the cause.
