Marcela Mar

Actress, Colombia

Mar started acting onstage at age 8 and has since honed her craft on television, particularly telenovelas, where she goes by her real name, Marcela Gardeazabal.

The actress made her bigscreen debut in Andres Baez’s “Satanas” (Satan), a harrowing ripped-from-the-headlines tale that won her a special mention at the San Sebastian Intl. Film Fest earlier this year.

“I auditioned around 70 actresses for the part. Marcela just nailed it,” says Baez. Comparing her work on telenovelas and films, Mar is clear about her preferences. “I would rather work on movies, mainly because you can go deep into your character over a shorter space of time,” she says, having just finished work on the telenovela “Pura sangre” (Pure Blood), which airs on Univision-owned Telefutura in the U.S.

Next up, Mar stars in Mike Newell’s “Love in the Time of Cholera” and moves to Los Angeles shortly.
