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.[4]
