She gained international fame as a member of the Latin Grammy nominated pop group RBD. In 2009 Perroni was named the new queen of the telenovelas by Univision. [2]


Early life[edit]

Maite Perroni Beorlegui was born in Mexico City but she grew up in Guadalajara, until the age of 12, when her family moved back again in Mexico City.[3] She has two siblings, Adolfo and Francisco, who are three and nine years younger than she is.[4]

Perroni studied acting at Televisa's Centro de Educación Artistica (CEA) in the year 2000, completing two years of a three-year course.


Acting career[edit]

Perroni made her acting debut in Rebelde, a remake of the acclaimed Argentinean novela Rebelde Way. She portrayed Guadalupe "Lupita" Fernández, a teenage girl from a lower-class family who gets the opportunity to study at the fictitious Elite Way School. Rebelde ran from 2004 to 2006, filming 440 episodes.

Following the success of Rebelde, in 2007, Televisa released RBD: La Familia, which starred the members of RBD. The characters of the sitcom were not based on the band's characters in Rebelde, but intended to be similar to the actors' real personalities. RBD: La Familia was the first Mexican show shot entirely in high definition and ran from March 14, 2007 to June 13, 2007, and only lasted 13 episodes.

In 2008, She starred as the lead character in Cuidado con el ángel, opposite William Levy. The show had great success around the world. She starred in her second leading role in Mi Pecado opposite Eugenio Siller. She was part of the third season of Mujeres Asesinas in the sixth episode called Las Blanco, Viudas along with Diana Bracho, Luz Maria Aguilar, and Mark Tacher Estela Blanco.

In 2009, Perroni was named the new queen of the telenovelas by Univision. [5]

In 2010, Mai was confirmed to star with her previous co-star, William Levy, in Triunfo del Amor, a remake of the Venezuelan classic Cristal. Maite was nominated for best actress in History.

In 2012, Perroni was confirmed to star with Pedro Fernandez in Cachito de Cielo, her fifth lead role. Eventually it was pulled off the air after 110 episodes due to low ratings.

In 2014, it was confirmed that Perroni was to star in her sixth lead role in a telenovela called La Gata along with Daniel Arenas, Erika Buenfil, and Laura Zapata. It aired on May 5, 2014.

On July 12, 2014, People en Español named Maite Perroni & Angelique Boyer the new queens of Mexican telenovelas. [6]

Musical career[edit]

Perroni was a member of the popular band RBD, which was launched off of the success of the telenovela most seen for years Rebelde. To date, RBD has made 9 studio albums, including albums in Spanish, Portuguese and English. They have sold over 15 million albums worldwide, and have embarked on various international tours including shows throughout Latin America and Europe.

Mai composed "Tal Vez Mañana", for RBD's fourth Spanish language album, Empezar Desde Cero and sang solo on the title track for the album.

On August 8, 2008, RBD released a message telling fans that they had decided to split up. They went on one final tour, Gira Del Adios World Tour, which ended in early 2009. Perroni was absent part of the tour, due to her filming of Cuidado con el ángel.[7]

For her role in Cuidado con el ángel, Perroni recorded three songs for the show called "Esta Soledad", "Separada De Ti", and "Contigo".[8]

She recorded a song with Reik, entitled "Mi Pecado", which was used as the opening song for the telenovela, Mi Pecado.[9]

On July 17, 2010, Mai released her new single "No Vuelvas", which was featured on an EP she released for her Brazilian Pocket Show performances, on her website[10]

She recorded a song with Marco di Mauro called "A Partir De Hoy" which forms part of the musical soundtrack of the telenovela Triunfo del Amor, her third lead role.[11]

In late 2012, Maite announced that she will record her first solo album called Eclipse de Luna.

On July 16, 2013, Maite released a bachata song called "Tu y Yo".

On May 2014, Maite released another bachata song called "Vas A Querer Volver" which is also the theme song for her soap opera La Gata.
