Biography

Barbara Marten (born 3 January 1947) is a British actress. She is most known for playing 'Eve Montgomery' in Casualty. She has appeared in various soaps, including Eastenders and Brookside, as well as many other drama serials such as Harry, The Bill and Band of Gold.

Early Life

Marten was born in Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire, and grew up in County Durham. She went to an all-girls school ('William Newton School') in Norton, then Stockton and Billingham Technical College (which has since been demolished). She went to drama school at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art as a teenager for 3 years, and says that it actually put her off becoming an actress. She trained as a teacher in Birmingham and taught for two years before being drawn back to the stage. After becoming involved with a theatre group in Coventry, Marten joined a newly formed theatre group in Doncaster. They toured Yorkshire, performing plays about various subjects, including the St Leger, and another about battered wives.
