Charles Martinet was born in the United States, and spent years living overseas. He has had an acting career of over 40 years. He became famous for giving voice to the most iconic character in the history of video games: Mario, the mustachioed protagonist for Nintendo. The actor’s relationship with the character comes from 1990 when, at the suggestion of a friend, he crashed an audition to play Mario in a real time animation system, where the character would talk with a live audience. The direction was to give a voice to an Italian from Brooklyn, and his first thought was to do a raspy New York accent, but he wanted to do a voice that was more friendly, that would engage people of all ages - so he softened the voice and created it as you hear it today, 28 years later. Woo Hoo!

Martinet started working for Nintendo in 1991, as the world’s first performer to do real time animation - as Mario. He recorded Mario Teaches Typing and other games, but it was in 1996, with the release of Super Mario 64, that he first lent his voice to a Nintendo Platform game. Since then he has given voice to several more characters in Mario’s galaxy, such as Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Metal Mario, and more!

You can hear Martinet’s voice in over 100 Mario games, as well as in such games as Skies of Arcadia, Shadow of Destiny, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, in the Bit Trip Runner series, Tiger Woods, PGA Golf, and Lord of the Rings, among others.
