Fountain Actress Sandy Martin is “Dynamite” on new Fox TV Series

Sandy Martin in "A House Not Meant to Stand"

Actress Sandy Martin blew audiences away with her performance as Bella in the recent Fountain production of Tennessee Williams’ A House Not Meant to Stand. StageandCinema hailed it as “a career-transforming performance”, exclaiming “Sandy Martin’s great performance does for Bella McCorkle what one imagines Laurette Taylor did for Amanda Wingfield. What she is doing doesn’t even look like acting. What higher compliment can one pay an actor?”

We totally agree. And so did other critics and audiences who were mesmerized by her performance throughout the acclaimed run at the Fountain earlier this year.

Sandy has also been busy as a voice-actress, reprising her role as Grandma for the new animated TV series version of Napoleon Dynamite.

Based on the 2004 hit film, NAPOLEON DYNAMITE is an animated series on FOX TV that follows the continuing adventures of America’s most awesome awkward teenager and his quirky family and friends as they struggle to navigate small-town life in rural Idaho. The original cast from the film will voice their characters in the series, and many new characters will be added along the way. The animated series is set to air early 2012.

Sandy will be at COMIC-CON on July 20th for publicity for the new animated series. Sandy’s excited and looking forward to appearing at Comic-Con. As she exclaims: “Grandma meets Spidey!”

  1. Sandy was always animated…especially in HS, where we were friends. Congrats “Grandma” Sandy!

  2. We love Sandy! Looking forward to having her back on stage with us real soon! Hey, Cheryl — was Sandy in the plays in HS? Which high school was this?

    • Wissahickon High School (Ambler, PA) class of 1967. I have known her since childhood and she is one of the funniest people I know. When I watch her in these on line clips…hey, that’s her…not much acting involved…she is naturally that funny! Ask her about the time she was Gertrude Ederly in an assembly. : )
