Patricia Eugenia Gutiérrez Salinas (born May 29, 1945 in Mexico City) is a Mexican actress. She is one of the last surviving stars from the Golden Age of Mexican cinema.


After completing her primary education she took a course in ballet and later enrolled at the Academy of Dramatic Art of the National Association of Actors (ANDA); however, these studies were only a complement to her education and she didn't really think of pursuing acting as a career.

At the end of 1960, Ismael Rodríguez sought a teen actress to play "Jacinta Cárdenas" in the film Los hermanos del hierro, for which he convened a contest. She participated and was selected from a group of over fifty young people, including several professional actresses. Just before the shooting began, she wanted to adopt a stage name and cinematographer Rosalío Solano suggested Patricia Conde. She had a short but successful film career, playing different characters.

In 1964, she married Rodolfo Enrique Serrano Anda, a marriage that lasted fourteen years and produced two children: Patricia and Rodolfo.

Since the late 1990s, she has staged something of a comeback, this time on television, but her work in youthful roles (from the 1960s) is best remembered today, where she played opposite the best-paid actors, singers, and heartthrobs of the time.
