Meet The Cheese Nun

BETHLEHEM, Conn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When the documentary The Cheese Nun airs on PBS this March, the star – a Benedictine nun named Sister Noella Marcellino – warns viewers: “Come armed with cheese.”

The special follows the sister as she travels from her abbey in Bethlehem, Connecticut, to cheese hot spots in France while researching bio-diversity in cheese making.

Sister Noella says she found that viewers of her film say they have a strong desire to eat cheese after they finish watching the documentary.

She says her film played at one film festival just before an upcoming film starring actor Danny Aiello. Unfortunately for Aiello, viewers were craving cheese so much after watching her movie that they left in the middle of his.

Sister Noella says she doesn’t plan on milking her fame into a TV career.

One star in the family is enough for her, and that happens to be her brother, Jocko Marcellino, from the greaser group Sha Na Na.
