"Susan pulled out the kinks in my broad, over-the-top stage comedy and taught me how to reign in emotion"

Kevin MICHAEL Martin studied under Susan to prepare for his college auditions. He attended Illinois State University's theatre school for two years before transferring into UCLA's prestigious film acting school. Since making the move to the west coast he has booked over seven commercials and can be seen this spring guest starring on NBC's "Perfect Couples" and TNT's new show "Franklin and Bash". He also enjoys having his own film company with younger brother, Jack, back at home; giving him a reason to return to the windy city and swap filming stories with Susan. He continues to have numerous guest starring roles on network shows and has been cast in his first indie film, "Bayou Tales".

**UPDATE** Kevin has recently been signed for Seasons 4 and 5 of TNT's "The Last Ship"!

"When I was in high school, I thought my quirky, comedic look would get me not only 'in the door' but the role as well. I quickly realized the extreme competition that lay before me. Susan pulled out the kinks in my broad, over-the-top stage comedy and taught me how to reign in emotion and allow a scene to thrive a character instead of pushing for an audience. She prepared me for the camera and the intensity that would be awaiting me in Los Angeles." ~Kevin
