Gosh, your skin is so healthy - I just want to lick it.
—Marci to Cyd

Marci is a recurring character in Best Friends Whenever. She is friends with Shelby and Cyd and always wants to be included. She made her first appearance in A Time to Travel.

Marci is portrayed by Madison Hu.


When Cyd ruined Shelby's chance to ask Cameron to the dance, Shelby and Marci become best friends until 2017 when Shelby travels there and changes it. Afterwards, she accidentally ends up in the middle of Shelby's invitation to the dance to Cameron and ends up becoming his date.


Marci s an interesting character. She's very nice but seems a bit naïve and clueless. She wants to be friends with Shelby & Cyd but her pushy and somewhat eccentric behaviors make it a bit hard. When she began to date Barry, she seemed to be a bit more serious than she used to be though this might be because Barry was hiding secrets from her.


Marci has a skinny build with long cup length auburn hair down and black eyes. She wears glasses and wears a long sleeved royal blue work dress, a green sequinned beanie hat with teal tights and silver mid heeled caged flats. She is as taller like the rest of the characters found in this series, but mostly are not.
