Who is actress Sara Martins?

Born on the 19th of August 1977 in Faro, Portugal, Sara Martins is a 40-year-old Portuguese actress of Portuguese-Cape Verdean descent, and with French citizenship. She is perhaps best known from her screen time as one of the main characters in Robert Thorogood’s TV crime drama detective fiction series entitled “Death in Paradise”, which has been running from October  2011 to the present day. She has had various other roles in films and TV shows, having been active in the often lucrative acting business since 2000.

Early Life and Education

Sara actually grew up in an unspecified location in France, as that’s where her family moved when she was only three years old. To this day, the names and professions of her parents, as well as the ages and names of any siblings remain unknown. It is also a mystery when she first showed interest in the profession she has today, although seeing as she got her first acting job right after high school, it can be presumed that she nourished a passion for acting from an early age. However, she actually went to ballet lessons as a child, and was the first person of African descent to perform at the Lyons Opera. She later learned she’d be unable to advance her ballet career and perform at the Paris Opera, due to the requirement that all dancers must look alike, and they were all white at the time. As for her education, it is known that she went to Ecole des Enfants Terribles in Paris, and that she matriculated from an unknown high school with a theater option, and went on to gain a degree in acting from the prestigious French National Academy of Dramatic Arts.

As previously mentioned, Sara got her first acting job immediately after high school, meaning she didn’t have to seek employment after college, as she rapidly became an experienced and fully-fledged actress then. Her talent was noticed by a local theater agent named Roger Planchon, who subsequently offered her a spot in the local production of “Le Radeau de la Meduse” at the Theatre National Populaire in Villeurbanne. After this, she appeared in a few more popular plays under various directors, before in 2001 debuting on the TV screen, when she obtained a role in the French police series entitled “Police District”. During the following ten years Sara landed various minor roles in numerous films and TV shows, all of which made a contribution to her popularity. After accumulating enough recognition in the world of cinematography, she was finally publicized by BBC One in April 2011 to portray the character of Camille Bordey, a detective sergeant on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint-Marie, in the popular aforementioned show entitled “Death in Paradise,” remaining in it for four seasons to 2015, in a total of 28 episodes. Nowadays, she remains active with a variety of support roles, now having a portfolio of over 50 appearances on TV and in films, in addition to her early dance career..

Love Life

Concerning the romantic life of the movie star, Sara shares little information, which leaves the media and the fans in the dark. It is expected of TV stars nowadays to tell the public about their relationships for the sake of attracting more attention to themselves and potentially increasing their net worth, but it looks like Sara doesn’t care much for this strategy. Thus far, there haven’t even been any rumors concerning her love life, much less any known ‘ex’s or any current partner, until the actress herself discloses the information.

What is Sara Martins’ Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Sara Martins is, as of mid-2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the total of Sara’s accumulated wealth is close to $600,000, largely aided by her numerous successes in the acting industry, while the greatest contribution has probably come from her long-term presence in “Death in Paradise”. As her career continues to develop, the said amount can be expected to increase.

Body Measurements

Concerning the physical attributes of the aspiring actress, there is currently no information regarding her vital statistics. However, it is reputed by various sources that her height stands at 5ft 7ins (1.70m), but there is no current estimate of the actress’ body weight. Her body type is generally described as hourglass, while her hair color is black like her eyes.

Social Media Presence

Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active actresses to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the titles they’re working on, and thus their own net worth. Sara herself seems to be a major subscriber, if not the leading example of this trend, as she is quite ubiquitous on most social media networks. Her Facebook account currently enjoys almost 4,000 followers, her Twitter account boasts a slightly lower 3,400+, and her Instagram account is actively followed by a somewhat higher 5,600+ fans.
