Actor, Singer, Entertainer.
During an illustrious career as an actor and singer Martin (Marty) Rhone has performed with and in front of some of the biggest names in entertainment. From the Rolling Stones to Yul Brynner; the Bee Gees, John Denver, Peter Allen and performed on stage in front of De Niro, Hoffman, Burt Reynolds, Sally Field, the late Princess Grace of Monaco, the late King Hussein of Jordon and the British Royal family.
He has played roles as diverse as ‘God’ (with a British accent), a Chinese shopkeeper, an overseer (with American accent). His mixed parentage enables him to be considered for many nationalities from European to Asian to American. He is in demand as a character actor because he can play many different ethnic roles with accent.
On consistency of performance there are few to match him, nor done or achieved as much as he has over such a long period – theatre, television series, film, concert stage, No1 hit records ‘Denim & Lace’ and ‘A Mean Pair of Jeans’. There are few that have a CV to match.
In recent times Rhone has moved into the film genre and is compiling an impressive catalogue of performances; the latest being his portrayal of the fugitive assassin Henry in the short film Snowmen and Master Long in the award winning ‘Marble’ by Chinese director Realm Choong.
