Manuela made her film debut in 1987, appearing as Ada in the film “Law of Desire” starring Antonio Banderas, focusing on three men in a complex love triangle. The film proved critically successful, winning a Teddy Award and considered one of Pedro Almodovar’s first works to focus on homosexual relationships. Manuela’s next notable appearance would be on television, appearing in the series “Medico de familiar” which was a popular show from Telecinco. More opportunities started opening up for her, increasing her net worth, and she was then cast in the miniseries “Camino de Santiago”, about a pilgrimage to the shrine of the apostle Saint James. She also appeared in the series “Hospital Central”, before becoming a presenter of “Los 40” which is a music program. In 2002, Manuela then appeared in the film “Sant’Antonio di Padova” before becoming a part of the series “Cuentame como paso”, which depicts the experiences of a middle class family during the beginning of the Spanish transition to democracy.

Velasco would then get her most notable role in the film “REC”, which would increase her net worth even further. It is a zombie-founded film which became highly popular, and was even remade in the United States under the name “Quarantine”. The film received a positive critical reception, and would win several awards including a Fantasporto, Fantastic Arts Prize and a Reaper Award; Velasco would win a Goya Award for Best New Actress the following year. Following the film’s success, she appeared in “Sangre de Mayo” as well as television projects such as “Doctor Mateo”. In 2009, she then reprised her role in “REC 2”, the sequel to the highly popular found footage horror film, with many returning cast members, and the film continued to show promise with great critical reviews; the success of the sequel would create two more films. Velasco would become a part of the television shows “Aida” and “Velvet” before returning to her role in “Rec 4: Apocalypse” which was released in 2014, the final installment of the series, which got mixed reviews. Many praised Velasco’s performance however, the criticisms stemmed from the fact that the ending of the series was not as good as expected.

For her personal life, it is known that Manuela dated actor Rafa Castejon, but is believed to still be single. She is the daughter of cinematographer Manuel Velasco, and her aunt is actress Concha Velasco.
