Life and career[edit]

Born in Bristol, Martini was raised in villages in North Somerset by her mother and father.[2] Having starred in local youth plays with Winscombe Youth Theatre and undertaken the two week induction at the National Youth Theatre,[2] with an interest in illustration post A Levels at Churchill Academy and Sixth Form,[3][4] she began an arts foundation course. However, a teacher suggested that if she was interesting in acting, then she should try it. After failing to get into RADA on her first attempt, Martini joined a one-year programme at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, where the company wrote their own plays which were then performed in local schools.[2][5] She was subsequently accepted into RADA the following year.[2]

During Martini's third year at RADA, she played the supporting role of a suspect in an episode of Endeavour.[5] In 2016, she starred as Mary Thorne in Doctor Thorne,[6] and Princess Langwidere in NBC's Emerald City. Martini portrayed the lead role of Jane Tennison in ITV's 2017 production Prime Suspect 1973.[7] She also played Sophia de Haviland in the 2017 film Crooked House, an adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel of the same name.[8]
