Never officially changed his real name to his stage one. He is still Ramon Estevez on all identifications and legal documents, and all his children were born under that name. He answers to both names with friends, but his wife first met him as Martin (he did not tell her his real name until weeks later) and as a result she still calls him that.

Purposely flunked his college entrance exam to the University of Dayton so that he could pursue an acting career instead. His father wholeheartedly disapproved until he had gained popular success, not even seeing Martin act until he saw him on the screen at a drive-in in his hometown of Dayton, Ohio.

One of his earliest successes as an actor was playing the role of Timmy Cleary in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play "The Subject Was Roses" on Broadway, for which he was nominated for the 1965 Tony Award for Supporting or Featured Actor in a Drama. He also played the same role in the 1968 film version. Forty-six years later, in 2010, he again appeared in a production of "The Subject Was Roses", but this time playing the role of John Cleary, Timmy's father (and this time in Los Angeles instead of New York).

On Who Do You Think You Are? (2010), he found some interesting things about his family. He traced some of his fathers ancestors in Spain and found out his fourth great-grandfather was a Don who had an extramarital affair with Martin's fourth great-grandmother and had six kids with her. After doing some more digging, they found out he was a judge and found a court case he tried about a girl who had an affair with a cleric and had an abortion. Unbelievably, while doing the genealogy, this turned out that the girl was also his fourth great-grandmother. 150 years after the court case, their second great-grandchildren married each other and became Martin's grandparents.
