Biography

Lorena moved with her family to Mexico City, where she began a career as a fashion model. She became highly successful in Mexico, and gained an international reputation, posing for advertisements in Mexico and South America. As a model, she won the "Look of the Year" contest, awarded in Mexico.

Mexico City Capital in Mexico

Mexico City, or the City of Mexico, is the capital of Mexico and the most populous city in North America. Mexico City is one of the most important cultural and financial centres in the Americas. It is located in the Valley of Mexico, a large valley in the high plateaus in the center of Mexico, at an altitude of 2,240 meters (7,350 ft). The city has 16 boroughs.

Lorena then began working in Mexico's low-budget films. She has been involved in more than fifty films since she began her career as an actress in soap operas.

A low-budget film or low-budget movie is a motion picture shot with little to no funding from a major film studio or private investor. Many independent films are made on low budgets, but films made on the mainstream circuit with inexperienced or unknown filmmakers can also have low budgets. Many young or first time filmmakers shoot low-budget films to prove their talent before doing bigger productions. Many low-budget films that do not gain some form of attention or acclaim are never released in theatres and are often sent straight to retail because of its lack of marketability, look, story, or premise. There is no precise number to define a low budget production, and it is relative to both genre and country. What might be a low-budget film in one country may be a big budget in another. Modern-day young filmmakers rely on film festivals for pre promotion. They use this to gain acclaim and attention for their films, which often leads to a limited release in theatres. Film that acquire a cult following may be given a wide release. Low-budget films can be either professional productions or amateur. They are either shot using professional or consumer equipment.

She also has created six albums, of which five are studio albums, and one is an album of remixes named Soy (Remix), released in 1997.

For her work in the motion picture and recording industries as well as television, Herrera's handprints were embedded onto the Paseo de las Luminarias in 2012.

Plaza de las Estrellas is a shopping center located in Mexico City. It was built in 1982. It is best known as the site of the Paseo de las Luminarias, the Mexican equivalent of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Gloria Funtanet, one of the Plaza's developers, created the Paseo to honor Mexicans and Latin-Americans in showbusiness, most notably the motion picture, television, theatrical, and recording industries, of which Mexico City is the center in Latin America. Since the Paseo's dedication, which coincided with the Plaza's opening, over 1,000 entertainers, mostly from Mexico, have been inducted. The inductees are honored with a star and their handprints embedded on square tiles. The Paseo is located in the upper level of the shopping center, and doubles as the main walkway to and from the stores located on that level.

Soap opera

Lorena Herrera met producer Emilio Larrosa, who had Televisa connections. Larrosa gave her a chance to star in his telenovela production Muchachitas" ("Young Girls"), which was a huge hit across Latin America.

Emilio Larrosa is a Mexican producer who has produced telenovelas and soap operas for Televisa.

Televisa Mexican multimedia mass media company

Grupo Televisa, S.A.B. is a Mexican multimedia mass media company and the largest in Hispanic America and the Spanish-speaking world. It is a major international entertainment business, with much of its programming airing in the United States on Univision, with which it has an exclusive contract.

A telenovela is a type of limited-run television serial drama or soap opera produced primarily in Latin America. The word combines tele, short for televisión or televisão, and novela, a Spanish and Portuguese word for "novel". Similar genres around the world include teleserye (Philippines), téléroman, or simply dramas. In Spain, they are also called culebrones because of the convoluted plots.

She was then hired to participate in the mega-hit telenovela Dos Mujeres, un Camino , where she played the mistress of a villain.

Herrera has since acted in many other telenovelas, including El Premio Mayor . She is also a singer, having released various Mexican music CDs and toured Mexico and the United States. She has been approached by Playboy Mexico to pose nude for that magazine (she appeared in the Mexican Playboy in the December 1987 issue, under the name "Bárbara Ferrat"). She has also released various calendars in which she assumed sensual poses, and she posed naked for Playboy again on March 2011 at 44 years of age. [1]

On the Univision show El Gordo y la Flaca , Lorena shared a bathtub with "El Gordo", Raul De Molina.

She worked as the evil stepmother of Lola (Monserrat) in Lola...Erase Una Vez . She is the mother of Grettell Valdez which interprets Carlota in Lola and she is also the mother of Zoraida Gomez in the soap opera Lola.

She has said that she likes singing, but acting is her favorite activity.

She has worked with Carla Estrada, Emilio Larosa, Pedro Damian and other producers.

She said recently on the Mentiras y Verdades show that she did not like to make novelas with Emilio Larrosa after El Premio Mayor told her that her part was going to be the antagonist.
