The model-turned-actor started his career in 2012 when he joined the late-night Kapamilya primetime series Kahit Puso’y Masugatan.
In this series, he played Balong who has feelings for Andrea, a character played by Iza Calzado.
In 2013, he joined the ABS-CBN remake of Maria Mercedes starring Jessy Mendiola. He played the older brother of Mercedes.
Back then, Marx did not have a regular series. However, he appeared in several episodes of Maalaala Mo Kaya and Ipaglaban Mo.
In 2016, Marx first appeared in GMA in an episode of the drama anthology Karelasyon.
