Cynthia Klitbo (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈsintja ˈklitβo]; born Diana Cynthia Klitbo on March 11, 1967 in Zacatecas, Zacatecas, Mexico) is a Mexican actress of telenovelas, theater and Mexican cinema. She is best known for her roles as Laura in Televisa's telenovela La Dueña (Mexico) (1995), as Tamara de Duval in Televisa's telenovela El privilegio de amar (1998) and as Juana Godoy de González in Televisa's telenovela Teresa (2010 telenovela).

Biography[edit]

Cynthia Klitbo was born on March 11, 1967, in Zacatecas, to a Danish father and a Mexican mother. She began her television career in 1987 playing a secondary character in the telenovela Como Duele Callar Amor en Silencio, Mi Segunda Madre, Yo Compro Esa Mujer, and Cadenas de Amargura soon followed.

After a brief hiatus in the mid-1990s, she returned to the small screen in La Dueña, once again playing a villainess. Notable performances in Alguna vez Tendremos alas, El Privilegio de Amar, and La Casa en la Playa established Cynthia as one of the best known actresses of her generation.

Klitbo has a broad range of acting skills. Notable performances with deep psycholocigal interpretations are amazingly brought to screen by this actress. Stunning was her acting prowess in the telenovela El Privilegio de Amar where in a dramatic scene she shaved her head to show her antagonist character's insanity and defeat.

In 2005 Klitbo also worked as director of the telenovela Alborada produced by Carla Estrada. However, the two television personalities conflicted and Klitbo left the production days later. Later in the year she participated in the reality show Bailando por un sueño ("Dancing for a dream"), the Mexican version of Strictly Come Dancing, (the United States version is Dancing with the Stars).

On Tuesday, August 1, 2006 she gave birth to an 8.5 pound baby girl via caesarian section. She named her Elisa Fernanda. On Saturday, September 29, 2012 Cynthia married the sculptor David Gerstein in a civil ceremony. The religious ceremony took place in February 2013. She currently lives in Mexico City.
