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.

Why Work With Me

When you decide to allow someone to play a part in your project, you need someone reliable who will care for it as much as you do.

As homework assignment in an entrepreneurship class I took, I had to ask 10 people who’ve known me for a minimum of 3 years if they could identify 5 strengths which they recognize in me. I thought it would be pertinent to use some excerpts of the results here…

PASSIONATE
DEDICATED

DETERMINED
DISCIPLINED

CREATIVE
CURIOUS

SENSE OF HUMOR
EASYGOING

Martin has this particular sense of seeing situations in unique ways and often leads back to humor. Very practical during darker or dull moments in life. He is able to see life differently. Adoring puns and double meanings, Martin knows how to make people laugh and take things with less “gravity”.

Martin loves a job well done and won’t stop until it’s to his liking! He is very professional in life and for him it is important to finish something when you start, even if it means starting over and over again to reach the desired result.

Martin is loyal. If he gives his word, he will keep it. It is a matter of respect for human beings.

Martin is always looking for solutions. There is no problem and he will, with a good attitude, know how to turn on a dime. Martin sees the options available when an obstacle comes up and he’s not afraid to go for it.

Martin is curious about life. Constantly looking for opportunities to learn. Arts, languages, health, work… If there is something he does not understand he will look for someone who has experience, read books, take courses, experiment… In short, he will find the information he needs.
