Martin Nadin is a British actor with on-screen experience in both motion pictures and TV shows. He played lead roles at home and abroad. Martin enjoys developing his characters and is always thrilled to see them come alive.
He comes from a musical background. He always had a passion for music; he has played guitar since his early teens. Prior to his acting career, he shared the stage with many top musicians, such as The Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock, and was the lead singer and songwriter of his own band called Menace.
In his early 30’s, he moved to Turkey for personal reasons, and in Istanbul, he got his first casting request: a talent agent asked if he would like to be a featured extra in Russell Crowe’s The Water Diviner.
“I fell in love with working in the film industry immediately. I was only an extra, but the scenes had 100+ people, five cameras positioned everywhere, and I was taking directions from Russell Crow.”
After The Water Diviner, Martin returned to England with the intention of continuing his acting career. He went on to gain experience in commercials, TV shows, and finally getting full roles in movies.
In 2018, he played Inspector Goole in An Inspector Calls, his first leading role, soon followed by roles in The Hunt and Tommy. In Özgür Dünya, a Turkish movie by the renowned director Faruk Aksoy, he played alongside Murat Serezli, who remembers their immediate bond fondly and says of Martin, “He is a very good actor as well as a sociable, sweet, and friendly person. It was a pleasure working with him; our scenes had a harmony about them. My only issue was that sometimes his acting was more charismatic than mine!”
Later, when he played Marcus in A Touch of Vengeance, he recounts that “I didn’t want a clean-cut Martin dressed in a suit anymore; I wanted one a bit scruffy with overgrown hair and a beard. I’ve had a fairly colorful past, and I like to draw from those experiences.” Jordan-Kane Lewis, the writer/director, agreed, and this is how Marcus was born.
Lewis says, “Martin was a delight to collaborate with, fully embodying his character, even growing his beard out for four months before shooting, discussing costume details, and actively participating in pre-production.
His ability to become unrecognizable, seamlessly transforming from a jokester off-screen persona to a formidable, chaos-inducing criminal, made him perfect for the role of Marcus. I had no doubt about his abilities as an actor.
I’m glad to have had the opportunity to work with him, and I look forward to working with him on future projects.”
In The Trilogy, Martin Nadin will play the complicated character of Jacques, an aristocrat and highly successful business executive with some dark sides.
He will star alongside Swedish actor Dan Wahlberg, who plays the part of an American millionaire, and British actress Stephanie Tripp, who plays the starring role as a girl who Jacques has known and manipulated for years.
“I can’t wait to get started on The Trilogy. Working with Bruno and Daria will be a massive step for me, and I am honoured to be involved. This project means the world to me.” D!
