Antonia Zegers Oportot was born in Santiago, Chile. She is a well-known television actress in Chile. She has starred in TV movies and mini-series, and is one of the busiest actors in teleseries today. Of late she has been on stage in a long-running revival of Ariel Dorfman's "Death and the Maiden" at the National Theatre of Chile, a play that echoes the themes of "NO" and was written by one of the most famous exiles of the Pinochet dictatorship. Her films with Pablo Larraín have introduced her to cinephiles and film critics who recognize her range and depth, from her role as a TV producer in "Tony Manero" to the emaciated showgirl in "Post Mortem" to the strong-minded left-wing activist in "NO". Last year she starred in "La Vida de Los Peces" (The Life of Fish), directed by Matías Bize.
