The actress Marte Harell was born as Martha Schömig in Vienna.
After the examination of the Reinhardt seminar she was engaged at the Theater in der Josefstadt where she made her debut at the age of 30. In the next few years followed engagement in Munich and Berlin where she was spotted by director Geza von Bolvary at the Deutsches Theater. He employed her for his movie "Opernball" (39) and and gave her an unexpected success. It followed "Wiener G'schichten" (40) and "Rosen in Tirol" (40). 
When her husband and director Karl Hartl became the production manager of the new founded Wien-Film, she became a very busy actress of this company. She convinced the critics and the audience with her performances in "Brüderlein fein" (41), "Die heimliche Gräfin" (42), "Frauen sind keine Engel" (43), "Tolle Nacht" (43), "Schrammeln" (44) and "Die Fledermaus" (45) - again with director Geza von Bolvary, with whom she worked for a total of ten movies.

She continued her career immediately after the war with the movie "Glaube an mich" (46), but the movie was torn to pieces by the critics. She only took part in a movie two years later called "Nach dem Sturm" (48).
Her appearances became rarer in the 50's. She only took part in one movie each year, among others "Erzherzog Johanns grosse Liebe" (50), "Liebeskrieg nach Noten" (53), "Spionage" (55) and "Im Prater blühn wieder die Bäume" (58). Because of the great breaks between her movies she dedicated again to the theater had had a successful comeback there.

Her last movies were "Vater sein dagegen sehr" (63), "Abenteuer eines Sommers" (74) and "Der Bockerer" (80).
