Joana Benedek (Spanish pronunciation: [ʝoˈana βeneˈðek]; born Roxana Joana Benedek Godeanu on January 21, 1972[1] in Bucharest, Romania) is a Romanian-born Mexican actress.[2]

She left her native land in search of work. She first moved to Venezuela before moving to Mexico. In Caracas she continued to study, but later left her studies to work as a model. In 1997 she signed a contract with a prestigious cosmetics company in New York. During her stay in the city, she decided to study acting in the Academy of Susan Grace.

She was later discovered by a Mexican producer, which began her career as an actress in Mexico. Sirena, Amigas y Rivales, and Angela are some of the melodramas in which the actress has participated.
