Lorena Rojas (born Seydi Lorena Rojas Gonzalez; February 10, 1971 – February 16, 2015) was a Mexican actress and singer, best known for her leading roles in popular telenovelas.

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.
