Great acting often comes down to your relationship with yourself. Self exploration is the key to courage in my opinion. All the good & the bad parts of us are the key to understanding other characters. The work is about becoming comfortable with what you find in yourself & becoming familiar with the unfamiliar. I think this is what contributes greatly to engaging & honest performances. My approach is at its core, self discovery born from the scripted word.
To reverse the question, I believe you start to work in this industry the moment you truly start to enjoy the work you do.
I feel it's also important where you can to work with drama teaches that are working actors themselves.
Please check IMDB (International Movie Database) for my recent films. They include co stars with Nicole Kidman, Antonio Banderas, Joseph Fiennes.

below are some indusrty reviews of my recent film work.
'Wall instinctively grasps Warren’s outward desperation and inner craving for redemption. Never seeking pity or charity, he’s determined to wrestle down his demons on his own terms, even at the cost of his own life. - Justin Lowe review of HAPPY HUNTING. - The Hollywood Reporter.
'Wall gives a sympathtic performance as a man facing his final stand.' - Noel Murray review of HAPPY HUNTING. Los Angeles Times.
Martin is an extremely gifted actor. Who has the ability to communicate simply both the conceptual proponents of acting as well as the intricate details. He’s very chill individual and goes beyond teaching someone to be a great actor/story teller. By that I mean he digs deep within you to help you express the most honest and sincere version of yourself. I would say the experience is both enlightening and surreal and challenge anyone who wants to know more about themselves to take his lessons.
Martín class is a must for any actor who will like to expand into character development. He works with your own weaknesses and strengths to help this creative process. Take the challenge! You will love him!
"Working with Martin has been such a privilege and one of the most inspirational journeys of my life. His method of teaching encourages play, imagination and exploration to get to the heart and truth of the story you are portraying. I believe that anyone wanting to inject complete honesty into their work should do themselves the honour of learning from Martin." Chantal Roberts.
I had an unbelievable experience while being in Martin’s class. I feel as if I’m more courageous and better able to connect and find truth in my acting. I’ve developed an interest and excitement in getting to know myself. As a result, I can now access my emotions more easily. Most of all, through Martin’s inspiring teaching I have become very motivated and excited about the future.
It starts very simply. We get to learning about you. I explain the foundations of acting as I see them & then we start merging the written word (script) with your simple conversational ways.
I have studies countless acting methods & found what works for me. My process is successful as I am a working actor. I will help you to identify what your uniqueness/strengths are & we will get them working for you in the model of teaching that I have cultivated.

I was helping fellow actors & word got around & I decided to structure a class format in response to peoples benefit. It grew very organically & I now continue the trade along with my acting career.
My youngest student was 10. My oldest was in his 70's. He decided he wanted to try it again & we took an incredible journey together.
I've worked with actors just starting out, working actors and those looking to get back into the industry after a break.
I was offered a wonderful romantic/comedy lead in Russia. When I arrived in Moscow I discovered it was also to be played entirely in Russian language. My leading lady spoke no English, so we had to rely soley on connection of heart to tell the love story. I am very proud of that film on numerous levels.
Look for a working actor. Someone who has experience, that works regularly on film, television & in theatre.
'Film makes you famous, Televion makes you wealthy, Theatre makes you good'.
I use improvisation as a tool & this is based in theatre. We set out to achieve all three!
It will all lead back to what actors you like, what movies you like, what theatre or writers you might like & in the process many more questions will come up & answers will be found.
