Deadly Beauty: Horror’s Scream Queens and Rising Talent: Deborah Funes
“Twelve years ago, Deborah decided to move from her country Argentina to Miami. A few months after her arrival, she was approached by an Italian company to be their exclusive lingerie model. This break into the modeling world provided her with great exposure. Soon thereafter she began appearing in TV commercials like “MTV” commercials, “Play Boy TV” videos and popular Latin TV Shows. In 2005, the original Baywatch producers chose her from hundreds of models for a pilot TV series. This experience was the beginning of her acting career for the American market.
