After joining the cast of “Saturday Night Live,” Steve Martin quickly became a household name. However, his success extended far beyond the show as he landed roles in high-budget films such as ‘Pink Panther’, ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’, and ‘Father of the Bride’.
Despite his age, Steve Martin’s popularity has not diminished over the years. Rather than retiring in his 60s, he experienced a career resurgence and even became a father for the first time.
In 2007, Martin tied the knot with Anne Stringfield and the couple became parents to a daughter in 2012.
As for his profession, Martin has expressed his readiness to call it quits. During an interview, he remarked, “There comes a time in your career when people are clamoring to see you…Now is the moment in my career when I have to make an appearance.”
At present, Martin is starring in his Hulu series “Only Murders in the Building,” alongside his long-time friend and collaborator Martin Short, and singer-actress Selena Gomez.
He developed the characters in a very natural way, stating, “I am very pleased that my character does not evolve. They always inquire, ‘What is the character’s arc? What does he learn?’ At the age of 75, there isn’t much more to learn; there are only more errors to make. So, I’m not concerned about those things. [It’s about] being faithful to the character. If Marty Short is true to Oliver, and I’m true to Charles, we can’t go wrong. They’re genuine people.”
Martin disclosed, “When this TV show is over, I won’t be seeking others. I won’t seek out other films. I don’t want to make cameos. This is it, strangely.”
Renowned for his television appearances, Steve Martin has become a household name since the start of his career. He has made 19 appearances as a special guest on SNL and has hosted the show 15 times, which has contributed to his popularity.
Martin’s latest show has earned him a nomination at the Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series, and he is retiring on a high note. He hopes to end his career with a win under his belt, which would be a fitting conclusion to a remarkable career that has seen him achieve so much.
With a career as prolific as his, Steve Martin is one of the most accomplished actors of his generation. He has undoubtedly left his mark on the industry, and his influence will continue to be felt long after he retires.
We wish Steve Martin all the best in his retirement, and we will certainly miss his presence in the industry.
