She has worked in a number of Colombian telenovelas, including La Baby Sister , [1] Pasión de Gavilanes , [2] and La mujer en el espejo. [3]

La Baby Sister is a Colombian telenovela produced by Caracol TV which aired in the United States on the network Telemundo in 2001-2002. The series, containing a total of 160 episodes, centers on the romance between two leading protagonists, Daniel Luna and Fabiana Estrella Rivera. On Telemundo, La Baby Sister followed the wildly successful telenovela, Betty La Fea, which has since been reinvented in the US as ABC's Ugly Betty. La Baby Sister was meant to be the successor to Betty la Fea as a hip and funny romantic comedy, and it was partially successful in this goal. Both novelas feature similar characteristics— both were produced in Colombia, and both feature a mix of romance and humor, modern sound editing and camera work, and a plot that centers on a young female protagonist and her family. Although La Baby Sister gained some acclaim from both critics and viewers, it never achieved the popularity of Betty la Fea. Nonetheless, it is often credited with launching the career of Paola Rey, who has since become one of Colombia's biggest television stars.
