Angélica María Cepeda Jiménez (born 2 August 1974), professionally known as Angie Cepeda, is a Colombian actress. She is probably the best known for her roles in telenovela Pobre Diabla and films Captain Pantoja and the Special Services and Love in the Time of Cholera. She is the younger sister of actress Lorna Paz.

Early and personal life[edit]

Cepeda was born in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, and raised in Barranquilla. After her parents divorced she lived with her mother and two older sisters (one of whom is actress Lorna Paz). Cepeda was in a relationship with singer Diego Torres from 1996 to 2004.


When she discovered her vocation in drama, she moved out to Bogotá. After starting her drama courses, she was contracted by a beer company and made some advertisements for it. Next, she played some bit parts in several soap operas and movies in Colombia.

Cepeda got a role in the soap opera Las Juanas, opposite Susana Torres, getting the attention of some TV producers who offered her jobs in prime time shows, such as the leading role in Luz Maria (1998), co-starring Christian Meier and Rosalinda Serfaty, and that as Fiorella Morelli Flores de Mejía Guzmán in Pobre Diabla (2000), opposite Salvador del Solar and Santiago Magill.

In the cinematic world, Peruvian director Francisco Lombardi convinced her to portray a prostitute called "La Colombiana" in Pantaleón y las Visitadoras (released in English as Captain Pantoja and the Special Services).
