Argelia Curiel has one of those faces most people recognize in Mexico. She is a telenovela star, and her career started by chance.
A few years ago, in Mexico, she went to a friend’s birthday party where she met a television producer who happened to be looking for a new host for her morning show. A year later, Argelia would become one of the most recognizable figures in her state, thus revolutionizing the role of women in the media in the state of Chiapas.
After her career as a TV host took off, she graduated from the Center for Artistic Education at Televisa in Mexico City, and her career flourished and thrived in a surprisingly short time. She received two prizes in Mexico for best acting performance. First in 2012 for her participation in the series “Mucho Corazon: Where love flourishes” and the second in 2014 for her performance in the '10th International Street Film Festival” in Tampico Tamaulipas.
Argelia Curiel has also appeared in numerous national and international television commercials and participated in several commercial films such as “Los Amorosos” with Marimar Vega and Daniel Martinez, and “Under the sky of the Three Crosses” which was screened at one of the most important film festivals in Mexico and Latin America known as the Morelia International Film Festival.
The multi-faceted actress has also appeared in several soap operas on the Televisa, Telemundo and Univision networks. These include "The One Who Couldn't Love", "Passion and Power" and "The Miserable" as well as in the remake of the well-known American series Gossip Girl in its Hispanic version and in co-production with Warner Brothers and Televisa called "Gossip Girl Acapulco”.
