Varla Jean Merman
Varla Jean Merman
Varla Jean Merman is a character originated and portrayed by Jeffery Roberson, an American actor, singer, and drag performer. Varla’s fictitious pedigree boasts that Ernest Borgnine is her father and Ethel Merman is her mother. Merman has been a star of stage, screen, TV, cabaret, and concert halls. Merman’s cabaret shows are a staple of summer entertainment in Provincetown, Mass.

Roberson guest-starred as Varla Jean on “Ugly Betty” in the final season of the show and was also featured on Bravo’s “Project Runway Season 5” as the winning model for the show’s drag challenge. He played the role of Mary Sunshine in the revival of “Chicago” on Broadway and made his network television debut on “All My Children” in the recurring role of lady of the evening Rosemary Chicken. He shared the Outfest Film Festival “Best Actor” Award and the Aspen HBO Film Festival “Best Actress” Award with his costars Jack Plotnick and Clinton Leupp for his featured performance in the cult classic film “Girls Will Be Girls” (Sundance 2003).
