Martin LaSalle (born 1935) is a French-Uruguayan actor.[1]

LaSalle first appeared in the Robert Bresson film Pickpocket (1959). Previously unknown, and in line with the director's mature practice, not then an actor,[1] he was cast in the lead role.[2][3] Following his debut, he has appeared in more than 70 films and television shows.

From 1957 to 1965 he was married to the fashion model China Machado and they had two daughters - Emmanuelle LaSalle and Blanche LaSalle.[4]

In 1968, while on assignment with Life Magazine to Photograph the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, he met his second wife, the Mexican artist Rosa Maria Blanco Ruggerio and they had a daughter - Maria Narayani Lasala Blanco.
