Ça fait pas mal en plus." He wrote, which in English translates to: Donate your hair @association_solidhair and support the hair prosthesis grant for people with cancer and in financial difficulty! It doesn't hurt too.

SolidHair is a French organization that collects strands of hair more than 25cm long and sells them to wigmakers. They assist people with cancer who are also struggling financially in purchasing hair prostheses.

When he had downtime from shooting Emily In Paris, he made commericals in Paris. 

On October 6, 2020, Martins posted a commercial he starred in, directed, and edited himself to his personal Instagram account. "Hey guys." He wrote, "Here is a quick commercial I created last year running around Paris with my camera. I shot this on July, a few weeks before #emilyinparis started shooting and I even knew about it... Themed around Paris and its stunning beauty, I thought I'd drop it here. Later peeps and have a good day."

It's clearly an advertisement for the water bottle company, Squirme. In the video, Martins drinks from several different water bottles in the colors of True Blue, Surf Blue, Yellow, Mint Green, and Anthra.

Charles Martins has his own film production company called Drops Films.
