Argelia has worked in Televisa, Telemundo, and Univision soap operas such as “The One Who Couldn’t Love”, “Passion and Power” and “Los Miserables” as well as the remake of the well-known American series ‘Gossip Girl’ in its Hispanic version with the co-productions of Warner Brothers and Televisa called ‘Gossip Girl Acapulco’.
I am attaching her biography, photos, and interview. If you want her to respond to your own interview, she’ll be more than happy to do it. Please let me know if you are interested.
10 years ago, while living in her hometown in Mexico, Argelia Curiel went to a friend’s birthday party when suddenly she found herself talking to 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.
She later graduated from the Center for Artistic Education at Televisa in Mexico City, and she tells us the story of her first steps on Mexican television as if it had happened in a distant past but the truth is that her career has 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 has also 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”. She has also appeared in numerous national and international television commercials.
Talent or Effort: Which do you think is more important?
I think that both are complementary. I definitely feel that talent is a gift that without effort simply stays there without being developed, while on the other hand a lot of effort without talent, well, in such a situation, we will have to rethink the possibilities that exist with regard to skills that can and cannot be developed, by this I mean that we have to understand our limitations and be clear about our goals.
