BiographyEdit

She was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. At 19 she went to Madrid, where she started working as a professional theatre actress and also as a cabaret act in pubs and bars. She became known thanks to her role as Agrado in Todo sobre mi madre by Pedro Almodóvar. She is well known in Spain not only because of her film career but also for her humorous monologues on television and theatre[citation needed]. Since 2009 she has been acting in the popular Spanish TV series La que se avecina, where her role of Estela Reynolds is one of the most acclaimed roles in the show. She is an atheist and is highly critical of religion, calling it a "cancer to society."[1]
