Anna Maxwell Martin

Anna Maxwell Martin's is the classic story of a young actress rising to fame. Though always interested in the arts, it wasn't until after graduating from college with a degree in history that Martin took to the stage in earnest to follow her true dreams. From there, she won prominence in the theater with plays like Nicholas Wright's "His Dark Materials," then on television with roles on "Doctor Who" and a number of British miniseries, and finally in the cinema, featuring in star-studded dramas like "Becoming Jane," quirky comedies like "I Really Hate My Job" and "Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa," and even high-profile Oscar nominees like "Philomena."
