I will not become a writer!
Martin was born in 1985 in the family of one of the most popular contemporary writers of Spain. Manuel Rivas gave the fans a lot of works that not only came out impressive print runs, but they were also screened. As for his offspring, he was never fond of literature, much less sought to follow in the footsteps of his fathers. Martin Rivas grew up on the sunny coast of Galicia, in the small town of La Coruña.

Time to think

The show enjoyed the audience's success, and those who made the first television steps, dreamed of getting into it.
