Yalitza Aparicio Martínez (About this soundpronunciation ) Spanish: [ɟaˈlitsa apaˈɾisjo maɾˈtines] (born 11 December 1993) is a Mexican actress. She is best known for her debut performance as Cleo in Alfonso Cuarón's 2018 drama film Roma, which earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.

Life and career[edit]

Aparicio was born on December 11, 1993[1] in Heroica Ciudad de Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca.[2][3] Her parents are of indigenous origin; her father is Mixtec and her mother is Triqui.[4][5] She is not, however, fluent in the Mixtec language and she had to learn it for the film Roma.[6][7] Aparicio was raised by a single mother who worked as a maid.[8] She does not have any formal training in acting, but has pursued a degree in pre-school education while already holding a degree in early childhood education.[9] [10]

Aparicio's breakthrough performance in Roma (2018) has earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.[11] Aparicio is the first Indigenous woman to be recognized, and the second Mexican woman to garner a Best Actress nomination, following Salma Hayek for her role in the 2002 film Frida. She has also earned nominations in the same category from the Chicago Film Critics Association,[12] the Critics' Choice Movie Awards,[13] the Hollywood Film Awards,[14] the Gotham Awards,[15] the San Francisco Film Critics Circle,[16] the Satellite Awards,[17] and the Women Film Critics Circle,[18] as well as recognition from Time[19] and The New York Times.[20]
