Wicaksono Abdul Salam (born 1 March 1952), better known by his stage name Roy Marten, is an Indonesian actor.
Life and career
Marten was born as Wicaksono Abdul Salam on 1 March 1952 in Salatiga, Central Java. He began his acting career in 1974 with the film Bobby. He achieved fame with his starring role in Cintaku di Kampus Biru (My Love on the Blue Campus), a 1976 film based on the novel by Ashari Siregar. Among his more notable roles from the time are as the lead actor of Teguh Karya's 1977 film Badai Pasti Berlalu (The Storm Will Surely Pass). By the end of the 1970s, he was one of the five highest paid actors in Indonesia.
Marten was arrested in 2006 for drug use. He was found in possession of two packages of crystal meth, weighing a combined total of 2.6 grams (0.092 oz), at a friend's house. Marten was sentenced to ten months in prison, but released on 1 October 2006 after serving nine months. Marten was arrested for possession again in Surabaya while promoting an anti-drug campaign in 2008; three others were also arrested. In April Marten was sentenced to three years in prison; however, he was later released in May 2010.
In 2010, after his release from prison, Marten played in Selimut Berdarah (The Bloody Blanket). In 2012 he played mob boss Sonny Wibisono in Dilema (Dilemma), directed by four directors in collaboration.
Marten's first marriage was to Farida Sabtijastuti. The pair later divorced. On 1 April 1985 Marten married Anna Maria Sofyana, an Malay Indonesian Muslim model who has converted to Christianity after marriage. Together they have six children, one of whom – Gading Marten – is also an actor. He considers himself a follower of the Syrian Orthodox Church.
