Eleanor Bourg in “Devils”
Pia Mechler stars as Eleanor Bourg, a strikingly beautiful, confident German woman who is used to getting what she wants, and intimidates men, in the series “Devils” on The CW. Eleanor worked her way to the top all by herself and she does not spare the rookie, Oliver (Malachi Kirby), her harsh treatment. Among the Pirates, she is the one who deals with outside relations: clients and other departments, with whom no one is supposed to communicate – theoretically. A delicate task handled with calculated astuteness. No man at the bank can claim to have touched her, but she has a weak spot for Massimo (Alessandro Borghi).
Born in Germany to a German father and a Polish/Chilean mother, Mechler studied film at the acclaimed European Film College in Denmark. Starting out in Germany as an actress, Melcher’s first part on British TV was in 2008 in “The Color of Magic” alongside Sir David Jason, Sean Astin and Jeremy Irons, followed by the lead role in the British independent film “Invisible Eyes.” Shortly thereafter, Melcher moved to New York City where she is currently based, while still working on both sides of the Atlantic
Mechler is also a writer and a director. She is the author of Remisuri, published by Shelff Germany. She wrote, directed and starred in the web series “Almost Settled” which is set in New York City. She was also a co-partner of a female run production company called W Film Productions. Her first feature as a director, “Everything is Wonderful,” in which she starred and wrote, premiered in 2017 at Thessaloniki Film Festival and was a finalist at the Chelsea Film Festival.
She also spent two years as the singer of the Electronica/Rock band M.A.U. signed by Universal Music Portugal.
Most recently Mechler was seen in the film “Gutterbee” alongside Ewen Bremner and Antony Starr, and “The Upside” alongside Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston.
