Charles Martinet net worth: Charles Martinet is an American actor who has a net worth of $10 million. Charles Martinet is best known for providing the voice of Mario, the Nintendo character; but has also done voices for Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Toadsworth, Baby Mario, and Baby Luigi. Martinet was born on September 17, 1995 in San Jose, California. He is of French decent and speaks French fluently. In 1990, he started working for Nintendo as the voice of Mario at trade shows. He was selected for going against the stereotypical Italian American voiceover and instead, chose a more soft-hearted and friendly voice that would be more palatable for children. By 1995, he was doing the voices of Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Toadsworth, Metal Mario, Shadow Mario, Donkey Kong, MC Ballyhoo, Mini-Mario Toy, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi and Baby Wario in most games. He also contributed the voices to the enemies Wart, Mouser, Trclyde, and Clawgrip in Super Mario Advance. His voice work appears in the English and Japanese-language versions of the game, although his work is always in English. Other than his work for Nintendo, Martinet has also worked as a voice actor in commercials, cartoons, and promotions. He has done additional work for other video games such as Cel Damage and as the primary voice in several educational games for the LeapFrog toys.
Charles Martinet (born September 17, 1955) is an American actor and voice actor, best known for providing the voice of Mario, the titular character in Nintendo's flagship video game franchise. He also voices Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Toadsworth, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi and a select few other characters from the same series.


Working for Nintendo since 1990, Martinet started voicing Mario at video game trade shows in which attendees would walk up to a TV screen displaying a 3-D Mario head that moved around the screen and talked. This system was called "Mario in Real-Time" or "MIRT". Martinet could see the attendees by means of a hidden camera setup, and a facial motion capture rig recorded his mouth movements in order to synchronize Martinet's mouth movement with the on-screen Mario mouth movement. This digital puppetry, with Martinet's comic performance, was a novelty at the time.
Martinet was told by his friend that there was going to be an audition at a trade show in which you "talk to people as a plumber". He went to the audition at the last minute as the casting directors were already putting away their equipment. Charles Martinet walked in and asked, "Can I please read for this?". The directors let him audition and told him, "You're an Italian plumber from Brooklyn". At first Martinet planned to talk like a stereotypical Italian American with a deep, raspy voice (which is how Mario sounded in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World cartoons). He then thought to himself that it would be too harsh for children to hear, so he made it more soft-hearted and friendly, resulting in what Mario's voice is today. Martinet has also stated that he kept on talking with his Mario voice until the audition tape ran out.
Martinet's video game voice over debut was as Mario in the 1995 Windows release of Interplay's game Mario's FUNdamentals. However, most were first exposed to Mario's voice in the landmark 1996 game Super Mario 64.
