Catalina Saavedra Perez is a Chilean film, stage and television actress. She is better known to international audiences as the title character in the 2009 film The Maid, for which she received several awards and nominations.
Mrs. Saavedra began her acting studies at the age of ten, prompted by her mother's hiring of a private theater arts teacher in Valparaiso, Chile. Years later, her love for acting lead her to deepen her studies at the "Escuela de Teatro Imagen" in Santiago, Chile, and later in Barcelona, when she began to study experimental theatre.
Saavedra's first professional theatre performances were in roles in plays such as "El Despertar" (1991-1997), "Pervertimientos y Otros Gestos Para Nada" (1993) and "La noche de la Iguana" (The Night of the Iguana) (1994), and in a Cafe-chantant called "TV cable 90" (1992).
