From a very young age Marta was clear about becoming an actress. To make this a reality she moved to Madrid and enrolled in the Escuela de Cristina Rota. Upon finishing her studies she quickly found work with Joaquín Oristrell in his film, Sin Vergüenza with other actors from her school. In this film, she was able to demonstrate a mix of fragility and integrity, vulnerability and firmness, which Eduarrd Cortés would go on to tap in La Vida de Nadie. I this film she took on the role of a nanny who falls in love with the father of a friend of one of the children in her care. Marta received a Goya award nomination for Best New Actress for this role. Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón chose her for El Cabellero Don Quijote (2002) and later for La vida que te espera (2004). Between these she filmed the thriller 13 Campanadas and Frío sol de invierno, where the Actors Union awarded her efforts with a nomination for Best Supporting Actress. A year later she starred in Entre vivir y soñar – where she shared a character with Carmen Maura – and Para que no me olvides. For her part in the latter, she received a Goya Awards nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Between the premiere of the film and the nomination, Marta filmed AzulOscuroCasiNegro and Remake, as well as the television series Vientos de Agua. For the first she was nominated for a Goya for Best Actress’ and won the Film Writers Medal (Medalla de Escritores Cinematográficos).

In professional theatre, she debuted in 2007 with the work Despertares y celebraciones, directed by her teacher Cristina Rota. In 2008, the Shakespeare classic Hamlet gave her the opportunity to perform the role of Ofelia alongside Juan Diego Botto.

On the 14th of February 2010 she won the Goya Award for Best Supporting Actress for her part in the film Celda 211. Later, she worked on Mientras duermes, The Impossible with Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts, and Los últimos días.

In April of 2011, she became one of the two vice-presidents of the Academia de Cine (Film Academy), presided over by the producer and distributor, Enrique González Macho.

In 2013 she worked under the direction of Santiago Tabernero in Presentimientos and dance with Chevi Muraday in Return.
