Soledad Fandiño (Born April 7, 1982; in Flores, Buenos Aires) is an Argentine stage, television and feature film actress. Soledad Fandiño debuted as an actress in the 2003 television series Rebelde Way. After the series, she was then cast as Felicitas Echagochen in the popular family sitcom Ricos y Mocosos (2004–2005) which propelled her career with best new actress nominations from Martín Fierro Awards and Clarín Awards. For the next three years she continued earning lead roles in family sitcoms and TV series produced by Pol-ka for Canal 13. She was outstanding as Juanita, the female lead of Juanita la soltera opposite Gabriel Corrado, and later played Jazmín Sassone opposite Nicolás Cabré in Por amor a vos. Looking elsewhere for inspiration, Soledad started a career transition that would take her to the stage, television films and mini-series. In 2009 she played the female lead in Astral Theater's production of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland directed by Alicia Zanca. Later that year she performed the lead in episode El Manto Chino of the Sci-Fi anthology series Dromo. In 2010 she played an actress in love with Juan Perugia, played by Gaston Pauls in Telefe's comedy series Todos contra Juan 2. She was subsequently summoned by director Alberto Lecchi to film in Uruguay the role of Alicia, a victim of domestic violence in the drama series Maltratadas. This dramatic turn was followed by a starring role opposite Independent Spirit Award winner and Bafta nominee Rodrigo de la Serna in drama series Contra las cuerdas (2010); the only Argentine dramatic series nominated for an International Emmy Awards. She went back to the stage for the play Ceremonia Secreta (2011) an adaptation of Marco Denevi's novel, directed by Oscar Barney Finn at the Margarita Xirgu theater, Soledad playing opposite Uruguayan stage actress Estela Medina, had the chance to show her dramatic abilities performing the role of Cecilia Engelhardt, a physically and mentally abused woman who loses her mind and tries desperately to find her dead mother. This role earned her a nomination for the Florencio Sanchez Awards 2012. Later that year she starred opposite Luis Machin in episode Cuestión de Poder of the anthology series Televisión por la Inclusión. In 2012 feature film director Juan José Campanella featured Soledad in Latin Grammy Awards winner Calle 13 music video "La Vuelta al Mundo". She has recently completed a production with Martín Piroyansky and Betiana Blum in Telefe's comedy series Mi Viejo Verde.
Soledad was born in the Buenos Aires barrio of Flores and spent part of her childhood in Monte Grande, a city in Buenos Aires Province while attending St. Mark's College, a prestigious bi-lingual school. During her teenage years she lived in Buenos Aires barrio Villa Lugano and graduated from Colegio Macnab Bernal. It was at this school that she discovered her love for the stage. This experience led her to drama studies at Escuela de Teatro Agustin Alezzo while studying law at Universidad Catolica Argentina. After a year and a half she left law school for Advertisement studies at Universidad Argentina de la Empresa while taking theater classes at Escuela de Nora Moseinco. Around this time she makes her foray into Argentine television with Cris Morena in Rebelde Way, as Felicitas Echegoyen in Ricos y Mocosos (which earned her nominations to Clarín Awards y Martín Fierro Awards). She then went onto starring roles in family sitcoms produced by Pol-ka for Canal 13 and played the lead on stage in Teatro Astral's production of Alice in Wonderland, a demanding production that had her training for months in acrobatics, trapeze and singing lessons with vocal coach Clara Terán. After this experience she continued vocal training with Josi García Moreno. Fandiño is continuously perfecting her skills with diverse teachers and methods. She later received additional vocal training with the renowned vocal coach Martín Durañona. She has also attended Escuela de Teatro de Buenos Aires receiving master training from renowned Argentine theater director and producer Raúl Serrano. Soledad Fandiño is currently studying at the Actor's Circle Theatre.
Initially performing roles in after school family TV series, Soledad's passion and wishes to push her craft led to play complex and different roles far away from herself in primetime television films and mini-series like Dromo, Maltratadas and Televisión x la inclusión, portraying battered and disturbed women, victims of domestic abuse. With her starring role in the mini-series Contra las Cuerdas directed by Alejandro Maci, she established her rising stardom. In the series she portrayed Ana, a strong, middle class, journalism student, who struggles in her day to day life to support her family and achieve her dreams. The series dealt with hot button issues like abortion, poverty, education, love and decline in law and order of modern Argentine society. On stage, she displayed her acting abilities in the play Ceremonia Secreta, performing the role of Cecilia Engelhardt a physically and mentally abused young woman who loses her mind. Soledad had to face head on one of the most complex and tormented characters in her career. Her dedication paid off with critical acclaim and an acting nomination from Florencio Sánchez Awards 2012.
