Ludwika Paleta (Spanish pronunciation: [luðˈβika paˈleta]; born Ludwika Paleta Paciorek on November 29, 1978 in Kraków, Poland) is a Polish-born Mexican actress and model.

Early life and career[edit]

Paleta was born in Kraków, Poland in 1978. When her father, the famous musician Zbigniew Paleta, was offered a job in Mexico, the Paleta family settled permanently. As a child, Ludwika was one day taken by her sister Dominika Paleta, to an acting audition and impressed the casting directors so much that soon after, she was offered her first television role in Carrusel (1989). Paleta became an instant celebrity with her character, and a sex-symbol among Mexican pre-teen boys. Three years later, in 1992, she returned to the small screen in what she calls her favorite television job yet, El abuelo y yo opposite Gael García Bernal. Roles in Huracán, Amigas y Rivales, and Mujer de Madera soon followed. Her most recent work in television was in the Endemol-Telefe produced Los Exitosos Perez.

Paleta has obtained great fame and popularity in the Latin American country that has been her home since she was merely a child. In an interview, Ludwika Paleta declared that she loves both Mexico and Poland, but that she does not see herself living outside of Mexico in the near-future.

She is fluent in Spanish, Polish and English. In 1998 Paleta married Mexican actor, Plutarco Haza. Their son, Nicolás, was born November 11, 1999. They divorced in 2008. She remarried near Mérida, Yucatán, México on April 20, 2013 with Emiliano Salinas Occelli, son of former Mexican president Carlos Salinas de Gortari.

Paleta recently appeared on the cover of the magazine H para Hombres. She also joined actor Aarón Díaz as spokespeople for Calvin Klein in Mexico. In 2012, she starred as Estefania Bouvier de Castañón in Abismo de pasion as part of a special participation.
