Martina is a professional actress, who has already gained quite a lot of experience in front of the camera. She is an extremely dedicated actress and works hard to do justice to whatever character she is portraying.
Martina originally trained as an actress at the prestigious drama school Paolo Grassi in Milan, where she graduated in 2012. Alongside her acting training, Martina undertook Philosophy studies at the University of Milan and completed her degree in Aesthetics, the philosophy of art.
After working as an actress in Italy for a few years in theatre productions and tv shows, Martina moved to London and in late 2016 she joined the Actors Door Studio, where she completed a 2-year intensive course, specialising in in-depth characterisation. Her work as a character actor focuses on a deep understanding and a bold exploration of human nature.
Her strongest characters can be deceptive and manipulative, or powerful, or mysterious, or edgy, or uncomfortable in their own skin. She can convey underlying instability in seemingly strong powerful characters, ranging from the warm to the very cold. She can also bring out characters that are very honest, true ‘fighters’.
Martina’s love for storytelling has recently led her to production – alongside acting – with the mission of bringing compelling stories to life. She actively works on a number of projects with writer/director Fay Beck, who’s the founder and artistic director of the Meisner Studio ‘Actors Door Studio’, in east London. She currently also teaches there.
