I was born in Alboraia, in the heart of the Valencian huerta, in 1960. Since I was a teenager, I have enjoyed theatre and politics: putting myself in other people’s shoes. I have a degree from the Drama School of Valencia (ESAD), where I understood that that was my way of influencing the world. I have worked in theatre, cinema and television. Cinema raised my social awareness, while I was a member of the cast in the film Land and Freedom, by Ken Loach, for which I was awarded a Goya as the best newcomer actress in 1996. This social awareness has lived in me ever since. My professional activity has led me to participate in many theatre plays and in more than fifty film and audiovisual productions, nationally and internationally; I was nominated for two Goya awards and I was awarded several times for my work as an actress. I started working as a director with a documentary film about Blasco Ibáñez and the First World War, but I gave up directing my first feature film when I was elected a member of parliament. One of the experiences that marked my personal career was my involvement in the defence of the citizens rights and my participation in the Artists Platform Against the War.
Life has given me the privilege of holding a seat in the Spanish Parliament to service the community.
