Yadhira Carrillo (born Yadhira Carrillo Villalobos on May 12, 1972 in Aguascalientes, México) is a former Mexican actress and former beauty queen.

Early career[edit]

Yadhira Carrillo was chosen Nuestra Belleza Aguascalientes (Our Beauty of Aguascalientes) in 1994. After this she entered the Centro de Educación Artística (CEA) to prepare for a career in performing arts. During her studies at CEA she stood out as a talented and driven student. Carrillo was rewarded for her hard work by producer Carla Estrada with an offer for the role of Teresa in the telenovela Te Sigo Amando (I still love you). She worked with Estrada again playing Josefina in María Isabel, alongside Adela Noriega and Fernando Carrillo.

Acting career[edit]

After appearing in several episodes of Mujer, casos de la vida real (Woman: Real Life Cases) portraying a villain in the TV-special Mas allá de la Usurpadora, she received her first co-starring role in El Niño Que Vino del Mar (The Boy Who Came From The Sea).

The talent and acting capacity of Carrillo drew the attention of Ernesto Alonso, prompting him to offer her the role of the antagonist in El Precio de Tú Amor. (The Price of your Love) Mr. Telenovela offered her the role of protagonist in his 2002 novela La Otra (The Other Woman), where she played two characters who are polar opposites. These are Carlota Guillen, a good natured daughter who is abused, subjugated and manipulated by her mother, and Cordelia Portugal, a Machiavellian, treacherous, manipulative gold digger.

In addition to her career in Mexico, Carrillo debuted abroad with a role in the Spanish telenovela El Secreto (The secret), in which she plays a perverse ex fiancée of the protagonist, played by Mexican actor Eduardo Capetillo. In 2004 Carrillo was the protagonist in Amarte es mi Pecado (Loving you is my sin), alongside Sergio Sendel and Alessandra Rosaldo, produced by Alonso. That same year, she played a special guest star role in Rubí, as Elena Navarro. In 2005 she starred in Barrera de Amor (Barrier of love).

In 2008 retired from acting career.

Personal life[edit]

She was married to Michael Kuhn.[1] In 2012 she married Juan Collado, ex-husband of Leticia Calderón.
