Personal Quote:

[on High Noon (1952)] I am very proud to make this picture because I look and act like a Mexican - not imitation. Some Mexicans go to Hollywood and lose career in Mexico, because they play imitation. I don't want this to happen to me. See more »

Trivia:

Was discovered by film director Budd Boetticher in 1951, when he saw her sitting in a bullfight arena while he was in Mexico filming the film, Bullfighter and the Lady (1951). He cast her in a small part immediately, though she did not know a word of English. See more »
