In Hollywood, the term overnight sensation is typically an over-exaggerated definition of a suddenly famous celebrity, but for 9 year old Marsai Martin, this shooting star is already on course to be just that whirlwind sensation. Born in Plano, Texas, Marsai began acting before she could talk. Noticing her natural desire for the spotlight, her parents took her to the Kim Dawson Agency in Dallas where they immediately signed her at the age of 5. She soon landed her first national commercial with the agency, appearing in The Choice Hotel ad "Voice of the People." As a student at Cathryn Sullivan Acting For Film, she attended a seminar that included several LA agents. In this seminar she secured representation with Melissa Berger at CESD.
Marsai relocated to Los Angeles in late 2013 and in a little more than 100 days, has accomplished more than most struggling actors can dream of including securing a major national commercial campaign with Meineke.
With a slew of opportunities on the horizon, Marsai is excited about what's to come and when asked what she wants to do when she grows up her answer is simply "To be a legend."
In addition to acting, she loves singing, dancing and playing with her Chelsi and going to the movies.
