Anabelle Gutiérrez Aicua was born on September 19, 1932 in Mexico City, Mexico. Though her name is often spelled in the usual Spanish manner as Anabel, she is registered at the Mexican Academy of Arts and Cinematographic Sciences as Anabelle Gutiérrez.
After making two films as an extra in 1949, "El Diablo no es Tan Diablo", where she played with a yo-yo and "La liga de las muchachas", Gutiérrez began to be offered larger parts. One of the first was in the 1950 film "Deseada", where she starred opposite Dolores del Río in an older sister / younger sister love triangle with Jorge Mistral. The film had 5 nominations for Ariel Awards and won for best musical score. That same year, she also acted in the film, "Azahares para tu boda" with Fernando Soler, Marga Lopez, Sara Garcia and Joaquin Pardavé.
With that recognition, other work followed and soon Gutiérrez became known as a young teenaged star. She made several movies in quick succession, but her most memorable roles were for "Muchachas de uniforme" (1951), "Rostros olvidados" (1952), and "Escuela de vagabundos" (1954), which for each, she was nominated for an Ariel Award as a youth actress. She won the award for "Escuela de vagabundos" in 1956.
Some of her other memorable roles opposite renowned Mexican actors include: "La visita que no tocó el timbre" (1954) with Miroslava; "Angelitos del trapecio" (1959) with Viruta y Capulina; "El coyote emplumado" (1983) with María Elena Velasco and her last film was in 1999 for the film La paloma de Marsella with Germán Robles.
In the late 1960s, Gutiérrez began working in television and developed a working relationship with Gómez Bolaños Roberto that would bring her second fame. Her first series with him was in "El Ciudadano Gómez" but the work that made her an icon is "Doña Espotaverderona", mother of "La Chimoltrufia" in the television program Chespirito.
