Actress and model Deborah Funes began her career performing in elementary school plays in her native Argentina, where she acted to an audience of teachers, parents, and nuns. As an adult, she began modeling professionally at 18 and went on to appear in television commercials and popular shows on Latin TV before moving to the US. Now calling Miami home, Deborah has appeared in several independent films, alongside some big names in the industry, while making quite a name for herself. Her growing list of credits include a lead role in Jim DeVault's Jebadiah's Axe, as well as prominent roles in Joe Hollow's Disciples and Lawrence W. Nelson's You Found Me.
Probably the most noteworthy of Deborah's accomplishments, wasn't before the camera. Two years ago, doctors found a cancerous tumor in her breast. Despite recommendations from her doctors to undergo conventional treatments, which involved chemotherapy, Deborah recovered using natural remedies. After a long road and dedication to her course of action, in March of this year, she is cancer free and the tumor is almost completely gone. She's currently working on a film based on her experiences and her healing process entitled Touch My Heart.
