According to her, she always knew that she would be in show business as she loved to act, pose and take pictures as a child. Despite the fact that she was born as a member of the famous Ortega clan, she initially decided to become a model, instead of pursuing acting or music like her cousins. In January 1993, she started participating in various ad campaigns as a model.
  • She continued her modeling work for about a decade before making her television debut on January 3, 2003 in the comedy show 'Poné a Francella'. In 2003, she also made an appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards Latin America. The same year, she began her stage career with the play 'Pajamas'. In the following years, she has appeared in a number of television shows in Argentina and Chile. She has also acted in over a dozen films and theatre productions.

Controversies & Scandals

The incident not only created a lot of controversy, but also caused a rift in the family as her aunt called her father to state her discomfort about the situation, which he did not take well. She continued such acts on the 'The VideoMatch Show' and went on to shoot a racy scene for 'Costumbres Argentinas' before appearing on Playboy TV.
