Sally Martin


Sally Martin was first spotted by a casting director while acting on stage at a Wellington high school. Since joining international hit The Tribe and the little seen Atlantis High as a teen, Martin has rarely been off television screens. She co-starred as ninja hero Tori Hanson in Power Rangers Ninja Storm, and played the feisty Sasha in backpacker comedy Welcome to Paradise. In 2009 Martin joined the cast of Shortland Street as Nicole Miller, one of the show's longest serving characters. Over a decade plus on the show, Miller has romanced fellow nurse Maia Jeffries and a murderer, and survived both a helicopter crash and a brain bleed.

She’s given me more guts. And boldness. We’re very different. She’s an extrovert. To be able to portray a strong, loud, extroverted woman is empowering. She’s given me more courage, in a funny way.
