Next, Varela will be seen in Dimension Films' TEXAS RANGERS, directed by Steve Miner. The role is part of a two-picture deal the actress has with Miramax/Dimension. She portrays the central role of Perdita, a circus acrobat who is kidnapped by a band of outlaws. Quick-witted and daring, Varela's Perdita proves herself a resilient and worthy opponent to both the outlaws and the Texas Rangers who attempt to rescue her. James Van Der Beek and Dylan McDermott star as members of the Texas Rangers.
Varela studied acting at Neils Arestrup's school, the Ecole de Passage and at the Conservatoire Superieur de Paris. In the recent past, Varela has demonstrated her versatility on the big screen in THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, LA BEAUTE, in which she stars as a young beauty who becomes an artist's muse, and the French comedy THE PARASITES for which she received a Best New Actress nomination at the Bezier Film Festival in France.
She has also had prominent roles in numerous European television features, including INCA DE ORO for well-known French director Patrick Grandperret, LE JUSTE, and SOUS LE SOLEIL. South American audiences are very familiar with Varela for her starring role in the popular Chilean television series, TIC TAC.
Varela is half-French, half-Chilean and spent much of her formative years in the U.S., Chile, Costa Rica, Germany and Paris. Fluent in English, French, Spanish and Italian, Varela's career has sparked a passion in audiences around the world. Varela currently resides in Los Angeles.
