Actress. A typecast villainess of the Mexican big and small screens, she shall be remembered for her award-winning roles on multiple television soaps. Raised in her country's capital, she had early show business ambitions, made her 1969 silver screen bow in "Lio de faldas", and that same year was seen in the television series "Rosario". Alma kept up a busy schedule for almost four decades and though she earned praise for starring in such feature films as the 1979 comedy "Amor libre" ("Free Love"), 1982's drama "A Married Woman", and the 1984 thriller "Luna de sangre" ("Blood Moon"), her greatest impact was to be in dozens of television series. While she won TVyNovelas Awards, the Mexican equivalent of the Emmy, for "Nunca Te Olvidaro" and "El Extrano Retorno de Diana Salazar", she was also to earn praise for her work on numerous other shows including "Mariana de la noche", "Principessa", "La culpa", "Mujer, casos de la vida real", and "Azul"; Alma made her last cinematic appearance in the 1992 "Old Shoes", earned her final television credits in 2008 on "Fuego en la Sangre", and died of a myocardial infarction following a protracted illness. At her demise a number of her performances were preserved on DVD. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
