About Me

We can live in a world that we design…

Martin Blais is my name. I am a multidisciplinary artist passionate about acting and about human interactions. At a very young age I was fascinated to discover that communication is predominantly nonverbal and that gesturing, body-language, tone of voice and intention accounts for a much larger percentage of a conversation than mere words.

I started participating in theater projects when I was in my twenties and also took many acting workshops with great teachers and mentors. I was fortunate enough to land a Principal part in a Quebec TV series appearing in two episodes of the first season. I also played principal and supporting roles for many other projects, films, corporate videos, kino and student films and I also appeared in a few ads and did some voiceover work. (You can view information on many of the projects I was involved in by visiting my Projects page.)

Fluent in French and English and currently learning Russian. I also have affinities with Polish, Spanish and German and, having invested many years learning these in the past, with some preparation, I can rehearse and play parts in these languages.

If you want to get in touch with me to see if I could be a good fit for your film or web project, or anything that requires acting, please visit my Let’s talk page.
