Edith Gonzalez was born and raised in Monterrey, Nuevo León, México in 1964, as part of a well-off middle-class family. From an early age, Edith showed a passion for acting. Having almost no experience or coaching as an actress, Edith received her first role in 1976 at age 12 in the movie El rey de los gorilas. After only two movies to her acting resume, she was offered the role of the quintessential spoiled daughter in the Mexican telenovela Los ricos también lloran.Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, she kept busy taking part in numerous telenovelas, most notably Bianca Vidal and Rosa Salvaje, and a few movies filmed in Mexico City. In 1993, when she got the offer to play Monica in the seminal Corazon salvaje, a role she meant to decline, but accepted after much convincing from her brother. The series was seen across the world to much acclaim and helped revitalize her career in the 1990s.After she finished filming Corazon salvaje, she became a bit selective of the roles she was offered, having appeared in a small number of TV series and films. Unfortunately, none of the follow up soaps or telenovelas she did after Corazon Salvaje were successful. Her role in the 1995 drama La Sombra Del Otro was an instant flop. In 1997, Edith acted in La jaula de oro with Saul Lisazo, which had very little audience, and in 1999 Nunca te olvidare which co-starred Fernando Colunga, which was a bit more successful.Afterwards, Edith took a break from acting, first by traveling to Paris, France to practice ballet and learn French, then from there to Los Angeles, USA to shoot a cosmetic ad campaign as well as learn English.In 2001, Edith returned to Mexico to resume her acting career first by taking part in the series Salomé and Aventurera. She became the first Aventurera, a live production lead by Carmen Salinas, where she interpreted a woman who was possessive, seductive, and who enjoys the easy life. Edith tried to cross-over to the American-film industry, but has had little success. In one of her few English-language roles, she played a Miami police detective alongside Eva Longoria Parker in the direct-to-video action thriller Señorita Justice which was filmed in Miami, Florida.In 2004, Edith temporarally quit acting because of her pregnancy and choice to raise her infant daughter. From 2005 to 2007 she served as a Judge in Bailando por un Sueno 1 and 2, Reyes de la pista, and Bailando por la boda de mi suenos.In 2008, Edith made a full comeback to acting with a few Mexicano drams and has several cinema projects lined up for herself.
