Max Martini (Actor) Biography
The actor of Canadian and Italian descent was born on December 11, 1969, in New York as Maximilian Carlo Martini. He grew up together with two siblings, Christopher Martini, and Michelle Martini. It is not surprising that he found his way into the world of creativity, as his father was a sculptor and reform artist, while his mother was a private detective.
The actor and his siblings were raised mostly by their mother Patricia Martini Margolin after their parents’ marriage ended in divorce. When Pat married again, the family would move to Salt Spring Island and live on a farmhouse where Max, his brother, and sister grew up.
Here they attended prep school, but with actor and director Stuart Margolin as a stepfather, the children were often picked up from school to travel with their parents to film locations. This became one of the most important things that they were asked to do in the entertainment business.
He started acting when he was much younger, something that also interested his brother Christopher Martini. At first, he decided to do something similar to what Raffaelle Martini Pandozy, his father, did by obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and sculpture from the School of Visual Arts, but later he would find his way as an actor.
Max began his professional acting career in 1985 when he appeared in the film The Glitter Dome, followed by Paramedics (1988), Pictures of Baby Jane Doe (1995), and then Contact (1997). He has appeared in many other films, the most popular of which were Saving Private Ryan (1998), Fifty Shades of Grey (2015), Fifty Shades Darker (2017), and Fifty Shades Freed (2018). It was said that in 2008 he declined the offer to participate in True Blood by HBO.
In addition to the movies, he has appeared on many television shows such as The Pretender (1996-2000), Walker Texas Ranger (1993-2001), CSI: Miami (2003-05), and many others. In 1999 he wrote the film Desert son, which he made with his brother while Michelle Martini, his sister, was the costume designer.
Family and Wife
As already indicated, Max Martini comes from a family that is very creative, with a stepfather as well as siblings who are active in one art form or another.

Kim is also a producer who co-produced with her husband Desert Son as Kimberley Restell Martini.
