Martin Thompson is a recovering former New York soap opera actor (All My Children, Guiding Light, The Edge of Night) whose numerous award winning and critically acclaimed New York and regional stage performances are now most likely forgotten – and perhaps best left to the imagination.
Today, however, he continues his meteoric rise to obscurity by working in Los Angeles Theatre!
As a company member at Theatre 40 in Beverly Hills, he was recently seen in two of the "Top Ten" shows in LA last year: Hellman v. McCarthy starring Dick Cavett, and Perfect Timing. And, he recently starred in the critically acclaimed World Premier production of Moral Imperative.
In his spare time, Thompson enjoys appearing on television and in major motion pictures with many big Hollywood stars – who probably don't remember working with him.
He co-stars with Kevin Costner in The New Daughter, opposite Paul Rudd in Wanderlust, and with Colin Firth in Main Street (the final screenplay by the legendary Horton Foote).
His television credits include Lake Effects with Jane Seymour for Hallmark, NCIS: Los Angeles, Criminal Minds, Scorpion, Comedy Bang Bang, and Uncle Buck on ABC.
Thompson is also a distinguished member of the acting faculty at both The LA Performing Arts Conservatory and The NY Film Academy – where he is proud to guide a new generation of actors toward their dreams of becoming just as rich and famous as he is.
