Upon finishing her studies she quickly found work with Joaquín Oristrell in his film, No shame with other actors from her school.

A year later she starred in Searching for love – 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 Dark blue almost black 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 Cell 211. Later, she worked on Sleep tight, The Impossible with Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts, and The last days.
