Returning to Venezuela, de Sousa began her career as a telenovela actress. In 2000 she worked in her first telenovela, her start was with the "Agencia de Modelos Mariela Centeno y Tibisay Rivas" Model Agency in Caracas Venezuela, her first project carried on the hands of Mariela Centeno to where Leonardo Padron and then Tibisay Rivas became her personal Manager in Venezuela www.marielatibymodel.com Amantes de Luna Llena, with a secondary character called Mayra, a university friend of Gaby Espino, the protagonist of the plot. This novel was produced and emitted by the television channel Venevisión. In 2001 Marjorie worked in another novel of Venevisión: the successful telenovela Guerra de Mujeres, playing the character Carolina, daughter of Mimí Lazo and granddaughter of Eva Blanco, within the plot, being the main antagonist becoming one of most popular characters within the plot.
In 2002 de Sousa left Venezuela to work in the telenovela Gata salvaje, a co-production of Venevisión and the North American Hispanic company Fonovideo. In this novel of great international success, Marjorie interpreted Camelia Valente, one of the villains of the history; in that opera she had perhaps the best character to date and the one who has given her greater international projection. When finishing that production, Marjorie began working in the Mexican telenovela Mariana de la noche, produced by Televisa; there she had a special participation as Carol, a villain. Next de Sousa worked in another successful novel of Fonovideo Rebeca in 2003 where she interpreted the character Gisela, that was friend of the protagonist. In this novel she met her future husband Ricardo Álamo. She acted together with: Gaby Espino, Mariana Seoane, Pablo Montero and Victor Camera.
In 2005, after having contracted marriage with another Venezuelan actor of telenovelas Ricardo Álamo, Marjorie returned to Venezuela to participate in the telenovela Ser bonita no basta of the television channel RCTV, a telenovela which was not very successful. It was her first protagonico and artistic failure. The masculine protagonist of this history was interpreted by Ricardo Álamo.
In 2006 she returned to act in another telenovela of RCTV, Y los declaro marido y mujer, a production acclimated in the Venezuelan island of Margarita next to Juan Pablo Raba, Verónica Sneeider, Christina Dickmann, and Marlene De Andradé. In her personal life, Marjorie divorced of Ricardo Álamo. As model, Marjorie worked in many advertising campaigns for the Venezuelan and Latin market generally, for marks like Pepsi Cola.
But without a doubt her best contract to the date in that field, has been when integrating herself to the selected group of Chicas Polar; the assembly of gorgeous and young models and actresses who are the main axis of all the publicity of Cerveza Polar. La Cerveza Polar is the most popular of Venezuela and is almost an icon of the country; and the girls of the sexy (and almost erotic) advertising campaign are considered like the elite of the most beautiful and voluptuous women of Venezuela. Therefore the popularity of Marjorie within Venezuela has grown much since she is one of the Chicas Polar.
