Christian Bach (born Adela Christian Bach Bottino on May 9, 1959) is an Argentine-Mexican[1] actress and producer of telenovelas. She is married to Mexican actor Humberto Zurita with whom she has two sons Sebastián and Emiliano.


After graduating with a degree in law Christian Bach moved to Mexico to become an actress. She started working in plays and in films, where her voice was often dubbed to conceal her Argentine accent. She obtained a small role in the worldwide hit telenovela Los ricos también lloran in 1979 and four years later a starring role in the successful Bodas de odio. In 1986 she co-starred with Humberto Zurita in De pura sangre and in the same year they got married. Ten years later and after a string of successful productions with Televisa the Zurita-Bach couple decided to form their own production company Zuba producciones and to move to nascent network TV Azteca. Two years later they produced two telenovelas for the station, La chacala and Azul Tequila, a successful production that launched the career of Bárbara Mori and Mauricio Ochmann.

In the 1980s she recorded an album as a solo singer, but the album lacked success and interest from the public.

She has been the image and spokesperson of the Mexican ceramic tile empire Interceramic for over 22 years. Her commercials are famous in Mexico and have made her likeness a household item.
