Biography[edit]

Verbeke spent her childhood in Argentina until she was 11-years old, when she moved to Madrid, Spain to join her family, a decision made by her father due to the political and social crisis that Argentina experienced during that time.

Verbeke also attended "Interpretation for professionals" by John Strasberg, in addition to studying contemporary dance with Josefina Tomás and flamenco dance with Miguel Sandoval, Carmen Romera, and Victor Ullate.

In 1998, Verbeke debuted in cinema with Un buen novio (A Good Boyfriend), in which she starred alongside Fernando Guillén Cuervo. For her role, she received the Max Factor Award for the prettiest face in a Spanish-language film. Other films, such as Nadie conoce a nadie (Nobody Knows Anybody), El hijo de la novia (Son of the Bride) and especially El otro lado de la cama (The Other Side of the Bed), catapulted Verbeke to fame. She received two Ondas Awards for the latter two films. She was nominated for Best Actress by the Actors' Union for her performance in El otro lado de la cama. In the 2005, she starred as Maria in A golpes. In 2011 she was acting as a maid in a French movie, Les femmes du 6ème étage with Fabrice Luchini and Sandrine Kiberlain.
