Elizabeth Gutiérrez (/ / ə-LI-zə-beth gə-TI-err-əz; Mexican Spanish pronunciation: [eˈlisaβet ɣuˈtjeres]; born April 1, 1979) is an American actress and model of Mexican descent. She is best known for playing the leading roles in the telenovelas El Rostro de Analía and El Fantasma de Elena.
While working on Protagonistas de Novela 2, she began a relationship with fellow contestant William Levy. She gave birth to their son, Christopher Alexander, in 2006, and to their daughter, Kailey Alexandra, on March 6, 2010. The couple ended their relationship in 2011.
Gutiérrez began her work in telenovelas in 2005, playing the villain Isabela in Venevisión International's Olvidarte Jamas. She left the production 12 episodes before its end due to her first pregnancy. The next year she began playing Paola on Acorralada but left to take the lead role in Amor Comprado. In 2007, she played the lead role in Isla Paraiso, a mininovela of 15 two-minute episodes produced by Venevisión and published online.
In 2008, she took another female lead role, this time in the Telemundo production El Rostro de Analía. The novela was broadcast in more than 50 countries; being on one of Telemundo's most popular telenovelas brought Gutiérrez worldwide recognition. In 2009, she turned down the role of Priscila on Bella Calamidades to play a villain in the fifth remake of Corazón salvaje. Critics responded favorably to Gutiérrez's performance.
Elizabeth went on to play the lead in El Fantasma de Elena, her third leading role. This novela was not as popular as expected in the United States but was more successful elsewhere. It has been sold in 70 countries. She filmed the pilot episode for La Mala, La Buena y La Tonta but left the project in favor of El Fantasma de Elena. She also appeared on the dancing show ¡Mira Quien Baila! on Univision. In 2012, she accepted the role of a woman who swung between a father and a son, Mariana San Lucas in El Rostro de la Venganza, from which telenovela she left early in its presentation.
