Born in Puerto Rico to Cuban parents, Martinez grew up in Miami and is fluent in both English and Spanish. She studied acting at the New World School of the Arts, and spent a summer with Anne Bogart’s SITI company in Saratoga before receiving her BFA and eventually moving to Los Angeles to pursue her passion for television.



“A lot of my series regular parts or my bigger parts on shows all started with characters that were either supposed to just be in one episode or recurring.”

“No one is going to advocate for your love of what you do like you do EXCEPT you!”

“It’s a constant balance of gratitude and worth. Be grateful for something but also, what’s my worth right now?”
