Rafael Amaya (El Señor de los Cielos) is without a doubt one of the best-known actors in television today, with a career that includes starring roles in successful TELEMUNDO original productions, theater, English and Spanish-language movies, and European television series. The leading man, who has also served as co-host of “The Billboard Mexican Music Awards,” “The Billboard Latin Music Awards,” and the first-ever broadcast of “Premios Tu Mundo,” starred earlier this year in the fourth season of the Super Series “El Señor de los Cielos”. The Mexican actor achieved crossover success in the Hallmark TV film “Meddling Mom,” the third-highest audience-rated production in the network’s history. Rafael has also diversified beyond acting, producing his first movie, “Paco & Santo vs. América” in 2009 and recently launching his first clothing line, Rafael Amaya Western Style.
Internationally-acclaimed Mexican star Aracely Arámbula has an artistic career that spans more than 15 years as an actress, host and singer. She has starred in dozens of highly-rated novelas in Mexico and around the world, such as “Acapulco, Cuerpo y Alma” “Cañaveral de Pasiones” “Pueblo Chico Infierno Grande” “El Alma no tiene Color” and “Soñadoras.” She had her first leading antagonist role on “Rencor Apasionado” in 1998 and two years later she played her first leading role in “Abrázame muy Fuerte”. This project, where she also interpreted the 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” in 2002, ranking on the Billboard Latin Music Albums chart. In 2005, after her participation in “Las Vías del Amor,” where she also interpreted one of the theme songs, Arámbula launched her second album “Sexy,” produced by Abraham Quintanilla III. Arámbula will soon star in TELEMUNDO’s upcoming “La Doña” in the role of Altagracia, an elegant, beautiful and successful woman who runs a construction empire, and whose series of major traumas early in life made her the implacable “Doña” she is today.
The lovely and talented actress Fernanda Castillo returned to TELEMUNDO’s screen in the fourth season of Super Series “El Señor de los Cielos” in the role of Mónica Robles. Before joining the network, Fernanda appeared in a number of successful television productions in her native Mexico and the United States, including “Clap,” “La Fea Más Bella,” “Destilando Amor,” “Teresa” and “Amor Bravio.” Fernanda’s artistic career also includes roles in theater in such plays as “Wake Up Woman” “Cabaret,” “Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar” and “Los Monólogos de la Vagina.” On the big screen she has appeared in “Déficit” and “Corazón Marchito” and will soon star in “No Manches Friday” which hits theaters on Friday, Sept. 2.
TV Host, actor, and director David Chocarro began his artistic career in his native Argentina, participating in novelas like “Floricienta,” “Angels,” “MyLove,” “Sos Mi Vida,” and “Mal Parida” and several plays including “Casi un Cuento” and “Bichitos.” His role in “Los Exitosos Pérez” propelled him to international audiences. Chocarro joined TELEMUNDO in 2012 with a leading role in “El Rostro de La Venganza.” He then starred in “En Otra Piel,” and was a participant in the reality show series “Top Chef Estrellas, where he beat all other contestants to raise money for the foundation of SOS villages in Honduras. As a director he has overseen many plays and short films. He returns to TELEMUNDO with a leading role in “La Doña,” starring as Saul, an attorney who defends the victims of gender violence and all young women fighting for a way out of unemployment, poverty and overpopulation.
Carlos Ponce, who will also perform at the event, is an internationally recognized Puerto Rican actor, singer-songwriter and host. He got his first role on TELEMUNDO’s soap opera “Guadalupe,” and his first leading role in the Mexican telenovela “Sentimientos Ajenos,” where he also sang the theme song. His self-titled debut album, "Carlos Ponce," held the #1 spot for nine weeks in the Latin Billboard charts. In the "Billboard Hot Latin Tracks," Carlos reached # 1 with "Rezo" and "Decir Adios." He crossed over with guest starring roles on “Beverly Hills 90210,” “7th Heaven” and “Once and Again.” Most recently, he was on Nickelodeon’s “Hollywood Heights” and Eva Longoria’s “Telenovela,” and did voices for “FREE BIRDS” and “RIO.” He also joined forces with Disney in "The Pirate Fairy" and with ABC in the primetime hit comedy “Cristela”. For several years he co-hosted the “Miss Universe” pageant on TELEMUNDO, and in 2006, he hosted the show for NBC. Carlos also hosted the "Billboard Latin Music Awards” on multiple occasions. Through the years he has played the leading role in telenovelas like “Dame Chocolate,” “Perro Amor,” and “Santa Diabla.” This year he returned to Spanish-language television and music in TELEMUNDO’s romantic comedy “Silvana Sin Lana,” playing the leading role and performing the theme song titled “Que Bonito Es Lo Bonito” (How pretty is pretty) written by him and Joel Someillán.
