Telemundo announced it has signed a deal with internationally-acclaimed Mexican novela star Aracely Arámbula. With a successful career that spans over 15 years, Arámbula, who has starred in dozens of highly-rated novelas in Mexico and around the world, is regularly featured in the covers of top Spanish-language publications such as People En Español, Hola Mexico and H magazine, and is currently performing in the acclaimed “Perfume de Gardenia” play in Mexico City.
“Aracely’s arrival to Telemundo exemplifies our strong commitment to offering our viewers only the best quality original productions featuring top caliber talent,” said Joshua Mintz, Executive Vice President of Scripted Programming and General Manager of Telemundo Studios. “We are proud to welcome this superb star to the growing roster of talent at Telemundo Studios.”
Born in Chihuahua, Mexico, Arámbula has an artistic career that spans more than 15 years as an actress, host and singer. “I am very happy to join Telemundo, a network that has proved to be a leader in original productions for U.S. Hispanics,” said Arámbula. “I can’t wait to get started and soon announce my first project with the network,” she affirmed.
Arámbula began her artistic career in 1995 with a role in the telenovela “Acapulco, Cuerpo y Alma” (Acapulco, Body and Soul). She then participated in successful projects such as “Cañaveral de Pasiones” (Sugarcane Field of Passions), “Pueblo Chico Infierno Grande” (Small Town, Big Hell), “El Alma no tiene Color” (The Soul Does Not have Color) and “Soñadoras” (Dreamers), among others. She had her first leading antagonist role on “Rencor Apasionado” (Passionate Resentment) in 1998 and two years later she played her first leading role in “Abrázame muy Fuerte” (Embrace Me Tightly). This project, where she also interpreted the novela’s theme song “Niña y mujer” (Girl and Woman), consolidated her as an actress and singer. Following this role, which led her to a TV y Novelas Award nomination, Arámbula launched her first album “Solo Tuya”(Only Yours) in 2002, ranking on the Billboard Latin Music Albums chart.
In 2005, after her participation in “Las Vías del Amor” (Love Paths), where she also interpreted one of the theme songs, Arámbula launched her second album “Sexy”, produced by Abraham Quintanilla III. Her most recent performance on television was a double leading role in the hit-novela “Corazón Salvaje” (Wild Heart) which garnered her two TV y Novelas Award nominations in the categories of Best Protagonist Leading Role, and Best Antagonist Leading Role.
