Career[edit]

Cecilia Cenci studied dramatic art at the School of Theatre in La Plata, participating in the mid-1960s in the old Channel 7 in the show Guide for Parents. On the big screen, she made her debut with the film The Pig War (1975) with José Slavin, and Marta González. However, it was in the 1980s when Cenci reached her career climax. She worked on several films until 1993 when she played the character of Eva Peron in the film Gatica, el Mono, directed by Leonardo Favio. On the small screen she was showcased in various comedian and melodramatic roles. In 1980 she won a starring role opposite Germán Kraus in the telenovelas Rosas para su enamorada and Donde pueda quererte. In Chile she starred as the wife in Andrea, Justicia de Mujer (1984). She appeared in several soap operas with international projection in antagonistic roles as in María de nadie, with Grecia Colmenares and Jorge Martinez and the telenovela Mujer comprada, with Mayra Alejandra and Arturo Puig. One of her most notable roles was that of Felicia del Molino López de Espada in the telenovela Nano (1994), with Araceli González . Her last television appearance was playing another villainous character, but this time with a humorous touch, in the soap opera Por Amor a Vos starring Miguel Angel Rodriguez and Claribel Medina.

She also did a notable union work and served as president of the Argentina Actors Association during 2008-2011. She was also president of the Social Work Actors from December 2006 until March 2014.

She died at dawn on 21 September 2014, at age 72 of brain cancer.[1] She died at the Favaloro Foundation in Buenos Aires and was buried in the cemetery of the Argentina Actors Association of the Chacarita Cemetery.
