Born in the Philippines, Millan moved to Australia at 4 years old and grew up in Sydney. She discovered her love for acting when she decided to take acting as an elective and performed in her first play in high school as Gwendolen in Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. Millan attended the University of Sydney where she studied English and History before deferring a year and ending up in Los Angeles attending the LA campus of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. While taking a trip to New York, she auditioned and was accepted by the original American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City where she eventually graduated. Millan has since been a true New Yorker at heart. While booking acting jobs, Millan had great success in modeling and has done endless national print and commercial work in addition to fashion/editorial work.
Martha is also a world traveler and has visited a plethora of countries such as France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Brazil, Panama, Peru, all the Caribbean Islands, Mexico and Indonesia, to name a few. As an active and athletic child, Martha continues to stay healthy and fit by running daily and practicing high-intensity training. Martha is an advocate for diversity and is proud to be starring in a series portraying Filipinos.
