MEXICO CITY (EFE) .— The death of the leading Mexican actress and politician Lilia Aragón at the age of 82 was announced yesterday by the National Association of Actors (Anda).
“The National Association of Actors deeply regrets the death of our colleague Lilia Aragón del Rivero, who was the general secretary of our union during the 2006-2010 period. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends. Rest in Peace ”, the institution communicated through social networks.
The Anda was joined by colleagues from the artistic milieu, followers and cultural institutions to mourn the death of the actress whose cause of death is still unknown.
A long career spanning more than six decades attests to the work of the actress in “Poison for the fairies” (1984), whose life was divided into the professional, artistic and political spheres.
These last two inherited from his family, coming from a family of politicians and granddaughter of the owners of the Ofelia tent.
Born in Cuautla, Morelos, on September 22, 1938, Lilia Aragón graduated as a lawyer from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and had histrionic training in Fine Arts.
It was precisely in the theater where her career as an actress would begin and a space that she would never completely abandon, despite the success she obtained in other formats.
In the cinematographic field, she was part of more than twenty films, some with international repercussions, such as the case of “Mictlán or the house of those who are no longer” (1969), which led her to be nominated at the Cannes Festival in 1970.
Among the most remembered films is his work in “Aunt Isabel’s Garden” (1972) and “Angel of Fire” (1992).
On television, his participation in iconic soap operas such as “Cuna de lobos” (1986), “Rosalía” (1978) and “Esperanza del corazón” (2011) stood out.
Her work was also framed by her participation in Mexican politics, having served as a multi-member deputy of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), from 2004 to 2006 and alternate deputy for Elba Esther Gordillo, for the PRI from 2003 to 2006.
