Leonor Varela

Birth Name: Leonor Magdalena Varela Palma/Pilme

Place of Birth: Santiago, Chile

Date of Birth: December 29, 1972

Ethnicity: Chilean (including Galician Spanish)

Leonor Varela is a Chilean actress and model. Her father, Francisco Varela (Francisco Javier Varela Garcia), was a biologist, philosopher, and neuroscientist. Her mother, Leonor Palma/Pilme-Keller, is a massage therapist.

Leonor is from a Chilean family (at least some of her ancestry is Spanish, including from Galicia, Spain). On her mother’s side, she is also said to have French, Hungarian, and Syrian ancestry. It is not clear if this is accurate. Her maternal grandmother’s maiden name was “Keller”, which is often German.

Leonor’s paternal grandfather was Raúl Andrés Varela-Rodríguez (the son of Luis Felipe Varela-Pinto and Julia Rodríguez-Rojas). Luis was the son of Andrés Varela-Cisternas and Natalia Pinto-Rodríguez. Julia was the daughter of Basilio Rodríguez and Eulalia Rojas.

Leonor’s paternal grandmother was Corina María Elena García-Tapia (the daughter of Ramón García and Corina Tapia).

Leonor’s maternal grandparents were Daniel Palma Robledo and Rosalía Keller Keller.

Her maternal grandmother full name is Rosalía Keller Keller, meaning that both her parents carried this surname, and were likely related.
