Biography

About me
I am a young Cuban actress and TV presenter born in Havana. Since I was little I had interest in acting and when I was 17 years old, after I graduated from the National Art School, I started my acting career in the Cuban TV series “Aquí estamos” (“Here we are”). Since then I’ve worked on radio, television, film and theatre with the theatre troupes El Público from Carlos Díaz and Jazz Vila Projects from Jazz Vila. I’ve worked among others in the feature films “Sergio & Sergei” and “The Companion,” where I received the Best Supporting Actress Award from the Association of Latin Entertainment Critics of New York for my character, Lisandra. I’ve also received awards in the Five Continent International Film Festival in Venezuela and the Short Film International Film Festival from Torrelavega (Spain). I’ve worked as host in the famous Cabaret Tropicana and since 2017 I’ve had the honor of receiving the embrace of the Cuban audiences as host of the TV reality show Dancing in Cuba from RTV Comercial.
