On his recent family vacation at Turks and Caicos, Marini said, "Besides the fact that I won't mind living there, it was absolutely amazing. The people at the resort were very, very nice. We had a blast."
He praised his wife, Carole Marini, for being an "invincible human being." "Carole does so much for everyone. I don't even understand how she does it. I thought her mom is the best mom one could ask for, and Carole is being the 2.0 version of her mom. I am a very lucky man," he admitted.
An equally important person in his life, is his mom, who instilled the hard work ethic in him.
On his plans for the future, the heartthrob actor said, "I finished two scripted shows that I wrote and created, and hopefully something will happen with that. This is what is next for me. I've acted for a long time now, and I love it, and I would love to do more producing. This is what is next for me. I want to be a part of the creative aspect of a new television show."
Marini is big on breast cancer awareness and hopes to do more to raise awareness for the cause since it is dear to his heart. "It would be phenomenal to go more into politics someday," he said. "I really want to keep America strong, and do more educational shows."
In the Greek culture, one of his proudest achievements was winning the "Artistic Humanitarian Award" from the Hellenic Times Scholarship Fund (HTSF) GALA several years back. "That was so cool," he said. "Then, I received the Elios Award in November in San Francisco, which was a thrill."
