Marsai Martin Early Life

Marsai Martin was born on August 14, 2004, to Joshua and Carol Martin in Little Elm, Texas. Marsai’s parents noticed she was interested in acting when she was two years old. Despite her inability to communicate, she would imitate characters from her childhood movies and television shows.
This prompted her parents to believe that their daughter was born with the ability to be in front of the camera. Her father made arrangements with photographers to arrange for her photo shoot. When Joshua offered to submit the photos to talent agents, the photographer decided to do the shoot on a low budget. Marsai had only turned five years old at the time.
