Apparently, Belanger is a veteran of the theater as well as a poet, and she also works as a theater director.

In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the "Third Wife" was part of the Quileute Legends backstory told by Billy Black (portrayed by Gil Birmingham in the film).

"This is definitely a break out role for" Mariel Belanger, talent agent Julie Donnelly explained.

Her counterpart in the film, "Taha Aki" was portrayed by Byron Chief-Moon, and Justin Rain also portrayed a Quileute warrior in the film.
