Stage

Audio

Martin was drawn to the performing arts through a highschool production of Max Frisch’s “Nun singen sie wieder”. His role as the cultured and yet deeply evil SS officer Herbert was so contradictory to his own values and beliefs that he experienced a spiritual crisis – and yet it gave him the greatest of joys to BE that other person. This made him give up on the idea to become a jazz musician and he studied acting. In 1978 he was hired to be a member of a smalltown repertoire theater for three years before he went freelance. He has been working in theatre, television, movies and radio ever since. Soon he started to work in international productions opposite actors like Jean-Paul Belmondo, Christopher Walken, Jeremy Irons and Klaus Maria Brandauer. German audiences saw him in highly acclaimed pictures like ROULA (dir. Martin Enlen) and ANTIBODIES (dir. Christian Alvart). Martin is also known for his voice work. He borrows his German voice for George Clooney, Russell Crowe, Javier Bardem, Kenneth Branagh, Geoffrey Rush and many others. His love for literature is met when he records audio books. Over the years he wrote many stage plays, movie scripts and novels. Together with Michael Seyfried he conceived and wrote the 13-volumes astrological crime series SPIEL DER STERNE, published at Rowohlt Verlag. In Los Angeles he is currently negotiating a TV production of the series for the American market.
