Natalie Martinez began modeling at the age of 15, years before she considered giving acting a try. The Miami-born beauty's career blossomed with a simple suggestion from her mother. During her senior year at St. Brendan High School in 2002, her mother saw an ad for J.Lo's new clothing line. After beating over 5,000 other girls for the gig, Natalie packed up and moved to Los Angeles.
Soon after the win, her face could be seen everywhere. She was the "it" girl in the modeling world. She graced the pages of Maxim, Stuff and Open Your Eyes. Natalie’s exposure opened up a world of new opportunities to appear on the small screen, in music videos and telenovelas. She appeared in the 2011 music video titled "Rain Over Me" by Pitbull featuring Marc Anthony. In 2006 she played the role of Michelle Miller in MyNetworkTV's Fashion House. She had a starring role in the 2010 crime drama Detroit 1-8-7, but the show was canceled after only 18 episodes. She’s also made appearances in Sons of Tucson (2010) and CSI: New York (2012).
Besides modeling, Natalie is best known for her supporting role in the 2008 feature film Death Race starring Jason Statham. She can be also be seen in the 2013 crime film Broken City, playing Mark Wahlberg’s love interest. Most recently, she starred in Self/Less (2015), The Land (2016), Message from the King (2016), and Keep Watching (2016).
