A leading role on NBC’s Santa Barbara brought A Martinez to an international audience. During the series’ eight-year run, Martinez won a Best Actor Emmy for his portrayal of the cop Cruz Castillo, and has gone on to star in a wide variety of roles in the years since. Notable performances include Meryl Streep’s high-camp gigolo butler in She-Devil, the radical badass Buddy Red Bow in the road movie Powwow Highway, and the legendary Californian outlaw Tiburcio Vasquez in Luis Valdez’ Bandido at the Mark Taper Forum. He can currently be seen on Netflix’s Longmire. Martinez has also starred in NBC movie, Cruel Justice, and, The Cherokee Kid and Grand Avenue for HBO, the latter produced by Robert Redford. His portrayal of the upwardly mobile but guilt-ridden Steven was a hit with the critics. “Superb,” said the L.A. Times.
