Born in Newport News, Virginia and raised in Houston, Texas, Martha Madison has two older sisters and two younger brothers. She started acting at the age of 6 at the Actors' Theatre of Houston.
Each summer, as all her friends headed off to camp, Madison chose to stay behind and take theatre classes. "It was way better and still is!" she says. Madison graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University in August of 1999 where she also was captain of the dance team. She cannot remember a time in her life when she wasn't involved in dance. After college she attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City.
Madison's professional credits include a 4-day stint on NBC Daytime's Passions as Lola and an episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Madison also appeared in the feature film Kate and Leopold with Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman. Her goal in life was to be a soap star on her favorite show, Days of our Lives. "Have faith beyond the explainable," she says. Her dream came true in 2004 when she landed the role of Belle Black on DAYS.
Madison lives by the saying "to thine own self, be true." In August 2005, Martha joined on with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as a Celebrity Ambassador/Spokesperson for the organization. Madison lives in Los Angeles and celebrates her birthday on July 27.
