The actress, who starred in the superhero film alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, shouted “I’m innocent” when she was jailed on Monday for caring for and sexually abusing a schoolgirl.
Stuntman and martial arts expert Zara Marche starred in the 2016 Marvel film Doctor Strange, which grossed nearly A $ 988 million, and starred in a number of other UK and US films.
But yesterday, the 37-year-old girl was sentenced to eight years after she was found guilty of having sex with a teenager for three years, starting when the victim was just 13 years old.
Prosecutors said Mark and her husband, Victor Mark, 59, regularly took part in “threesomes” with the young girl when she stayed at their home, with Victor sometimes filming “corrupt” actions to recreate scenes from pornographic films he watched. with his wife.
Taekwondo master Victor Marche was found guilty of mocking the second victim and received 14 years in prison after a judge called it the “driving force” of the abuse.
Judge Mark Watson said he believed the actress, who entered the Victor Marche Academy of Martial Arts as a 14-year-old girl and had an affair with a married man when she was 19, was “enchanted” with a teacher 22 years her senior. .
He told her: “I have no doubt that your deviation was shaped by the influence he had on you from an early age … but you had a choice. You decided to play your part in your victim’s corruption when you had to protect her. “
Defendants from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, cried and nodded during the hour-long hearing, which ended with both being ordered to sign lifelong registration of sex offenders.
They will serve half of their sentences before receiving the right to parole. As she was being taken out of court, Mark, dressed in a gray prison suit, shouted to relatives in a public gallery, “I am innocent. I love you all. “
Earlier, a judge told the couple that they had subjected their “vulnerable” 13-year-old victim to “sexual behavior beyond her age and maturity.”
He added: “It was done without attention and without attention to how it will affect her or her development.”
Nottingham’s Crown Court heard that the abuse began in 2005 after Mark drenched the girl with rum, before Mark, who appeared on screen under his maiden name Zara Fitian, “dared” her to have sex with her husband.
