(Ricardo Palacios, 1987), La sombra del ciprés es alargada (Luis Alcoriza, 1990), and La sal de la vida (Eugenio Martín, 1996).

At the same time she strengthened her television career, participating in La máscara negra [es] (1982), Tango [es] (1991), La Regenta [es] (1995), Hermanos de leche [es] (1994–95), Cuéntame cómo pasó (2003–04), Obsesión [es] (2005), Hospital Central (2006), Alfonso, el príncipe maldito [es] (2010), and Amar en tiempos revueltos (2011).

In the theater she starred in The Odd Couple (2001–02), The Children's Hour (2004–07), Agnes of God (2007–09), and Galdosiana (2009–10), plays in which she shared billing and production work with the actress Cristina Higueras [es] through her company Nueva Comedia.
