Who the hell is Margarita Muñoz, you ask? She’s the super-talented actress who plays the role of Valeria in The Marked Heart, the new Netflix Original Series. If that’s not enough to pique your interest, I don’t know what will! Seriously though, if you love supernatural/thriller movies and shows like me, then this series is for you! As we’re about halfway through season one as of now, let me tell you all about it in my NETFLIX review! Who is Margarita Muñoz?

Born in Chihuahua, Mexico

Mexican actress and model, Margarita Muñoz (b. Chihuahua), stars as Valeria on Netflix original series The Marked Heart. Find out everything you need to know about her here!… Margarita Muñoz was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. She began modeling at age 11 when she won a local beauty pageant. After attending university for two years, she moved to Mexico City where she worked as a model and began acting in telenovelas….She made her debut in La malquerida with Angelique Boyer.

Studied theatre at Juilliard

Though her debut in 2012’s Tear This Heart Out received mixed reviews, Marked Heart demonstrated she was more than capable of handling complex and interesting roles. She’s a strong choice for Valeria because she has prior experience with Gothic literature and adaptations, based on her involvement in 2013’s adapation of Jane Eyre. And while I know it may not be what everyone wants to hear, she actually bears a physical resemblance to how I see Valeria.
