Marcela Gardeazabal, better known by her stage name, Marcela Mar, is a Colombian actress, born on 16 March 1979.


She was born in Bogotá, Colombia and started her theater studies at the age of 8 when her parents enrolled her at the Teatro Nacional de Bogotá. She managed to conquer the audience in telenovelas such as Sin límites, Todos quieren con Marilyn, and Pedro el escamoso. She toured internationally with the play Dos Hermanas, and participated in international festivals in Bogotá and Manizales. She starred in the telenovela Pura sangre in 2007 as Florencia Lagos, and in 2009 she starred as Marcela Liévano in the television series El capo. In 2011 she played the role of Lucía Garfunkel in the television series Mentes en Shock. She currently stars as Doris, a villain alongside Aarón Díaz and Lola Ponce, in El Talismán.

In film she debuted in 2007 with the movie Satanas, playing the lead female role. That same year she would act in the movie Love in the Time of Cholera. After these films she decided to go by the last name Mar, as she felt it was easier to pronounce compared to Gardeazabal.

Personal life[edit]

She was in a relationship to actor and Gregorio Pernia, whom she lived with for 5 years until their split and had a son, Emiliano.
