Graham Patrick Martin was born on November 14, 1991, in Metairie, Louisiana. He grew up alongside a sister and two brothers who were all interested in acting. Nevertheless, what would be his greatest draw to acting is his elder sister who also loved acting.
The Major Crimes actor attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School where he got the opportunity to sharpen his arts before he finally settled down as an actor. While growing up, both he and his siblings got the support of their parents as they showed interest in acting. It was to this end that the parents decided to send them to a performing arts summer camp known as French Woods. It was there, at the age of 8 that Graham Patrick Martin got the opportunity to audition for his first play role and he ended in the musical, The King and I.
Professionally, the actor started acting in 2006 when he landed a role in Law & Order: Criminal Intent. By 2010 he had already appeared in different other TV shows including The Bill Engvall Show, iCarly, Jonas, and Two and a Half Men. From here, he went on to appear in many more TV shows including Good Luck Charlie, The Closer, Major Crimes (which still remains one of his most significant works), The Anna Nicole Story, Impastor, and The Good Doctor.

Here Are All The Facts – Is Graham Patrick Martin Gay?
Today, Graham has become extremely popular thanks to the role of Rusty Beck that he plays in the highly entertaining hit TNT series Major Crimes. A rather versatile actor, his role in the series has not only earned him a place among the most talented young Hollywood actors, but it is debatably the best portrayal of a gay character ever seen on TV thus far.
The thing for the actor, however, is that as a result of the mastery of his role, many people tend to think that he is actually gay. What makes his character even more real is the fact that the movie is created by James Duff who is an open gay. This has enabled him to give Graham Patrick Martin or Rusty Beck a storyline that is real, including things that he has witnessed himself and things that were part of his own life story.
The question, therefore, for many people is whether or not Graham Patrick Martin is gay. The simple answer is that while Rusty Beck is gay, Graham is straight.
Important Points to Note
1. The first time he kissed a man was on screen and he revealed that it wasn’t bad. In fact, he describes it as awesome, except for the beards touching him. After the kiss, he told his on-screen partner to either clear the beards or he would ask that the part of kissing be not written again. In real life, he has never kissed any man before.
2. He has been in more than a single relationship with women before now. His first relationship lasted for 4 years before it ended and he started another with Ginny Gardner.
3. Although Rusty Beck is his most popular portrayal thanks to Major Crimes, the actor has acted in many more straight roles than he has as a gay character.
4. There are no indications that Rene Rosado who acted as Graham’s gay partner is himself gay. In fact, even as he kissed his fellow star on set, he stated that it is not very hard for him to adjust as a gay character.
