Wicaksono Abdul Salam (born 1 March 1952), better known by his stage name Roy Marten, is an Indonesian actor.

Biography[edit]

Marten was born as Wicaksono Abdul Salam in Salatiga, Central Java, on 1 March 1952.[1][2] He began his acting career in 1974 with the film Bobby.[3] 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.[4] 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).[5] By the end of the 1970s, he was one of the five highest paid actors in Indonesia.[4]

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.[6] 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.[7][8]

In 2010, after his release from prison, Marten played in Selimut Berdarah (The Bloody Blanket).[8] In 2012 he played mob boss Sonny Wibisono in Dilema (Dilemma), directed by four directors in collaboration.[9]

Personal life[edit]

Marten's first marriage was to Farida Sabtijastuti. The pair later divorced. On 1 April 1985 Marten married Anna Maria. Together they have six children, one of whom – Gading Marten – is also an actor.[3][1] He considers himself a follower of the Syrian Orthodox Church.[2]
