Marta signed with London based agency "International Actors London" after 3 great years in a co-op. She is very excited to be working with them and is looking forward to taking the next steps in her career with their support.

Early in 2017 Marta launched her own theatre company, Starbound Theatre, and in December that year they staged their first production: "Pizza Man" by Darlene Craviotto at the Etcetera Theatre in London. On September 17th 2018 Starbound produced its second full-length show, “I will miss you when you’re gone” at the Hen and Chickens Theatre, which got some great audience feedback and reviews. In 2019, Starbound has co-produced new writing piece “The Net” with Lights Down Productions, which premièred at the Tristan Bates Theatre as part of this year’s Camden Fringe lineup.

Videogame "Herald" (Wispfire Games), where Marta voiced Lady Tabatha Veazie, was released on Steam, GOG, and Humble in February 2018; and “Green Hell” (Creepy Jar Games) where she voiced Mia, is now available on Steam. She worked on her first major AAA title in 2018, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (Ubisoft Games) - now available on console and PC - and in 2019 she was lucky to be picked as the Spanish voice for protagonist Jesse Faden in “Control” (Remedy Games).

"Herald is a delight to play. It has a cast of complex, interesting, and incredibly voiced characters, beautifully captivating art design, and a fresh and fun story..." - The Overpowered Noobs

"Despite indie roots, Herald also benefits from superb voice acting, bringing the cast to life and livening dialogue-heavy sections."  - Matt Kamen & Andy Robertson, The Guardian.

"[…]The voice acting is superb, some much larger developers could learn a thing or two from Wispfire." - Highend Gamer.

“[Green Hell] An infinite survival experience with a short intro on the story to come which has superb voice acting” - Steam EA review

“[…]a relationship which is bolstered by some superb voice acting from Brandon Fague and Marta da Silva that more than holds a candle to the similar walkie-talkie relationship seen in Campo Santo’s Firewatch. It says a lot that I would love to gush about Green Hell’s story, yet I have to refrain as its narrative is something that you should discover all for yourself.” - Jimmy Donnellan, Culturedvultures

Marta has also been shooting several short films in collaboration with members of London Short Film, and wrapped her first starring role in a feature in late 2017, when she portrayed Millie in "House of Bricks". The film will be screened in late 2018 and then be submitted to the Festival Circuit in 2019.

Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.
— Meryl Streep
When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.
— Cynthia Heimel
