Patricia Manterola (Spanish pronunciation: [paˈtɾisja manteˈɾola]; born Bertha Patricia Manterola Carrión on April 23, 1972)[1][2][3] is a Mexican singer, actress, model, and fashion designer born in Mexico City.[4][5]

Background[edit]

Patricia Manterola Carrion was born to Jorge Manterola and Maria Dolores Carrion, the second of three children. Her brother, Jorge, is 11 months older than she, and her younger sister, Michelle, who shares the same birth date as Patricia, is eight years younger.

Paty—as she is also known—attended elementary school at “Colegio Miguel Angel” and “Franco-Espanol.” She studied at “Colegio Oxford” in Cuernavaca during her middle school years, where she lived with her extended family for a while. For high school she attended “Tecnologico de Monterey” de Cuernavaca and graduated in Mexico City at “Colegio Miguel Angel.”

In addition to her academics, Paty studied dance, voice, and music. She was the main voice in the chorus of the “Miguel Angel Institute.” Since she was a little girl she demonstrated an affinity for the entertainment world, participating in school plays, until at the age of nine, she was part of the musical comedy “Anita la Huerfanita,” (Little Orphan Annie).

Later, she was part of the festival “Juguemos a Cantar” (1982), together with her brother, Jorge, and two friends, she made it to the finals, which allowed her to record on a compilation album edited for the festival.

Manterola soon entered the world of modeling, which allowed her to meet the Mexican producer Luis de Llano, in 1989, creator of the band, Timbiriche and a successful producer of telenovelas (soap operas). De Llano eventually suggested she audition for the group, but noticing her talent, invited her to be part of a new project known as Garibaldi.

Personal life[edit]

On April 17, 1999, Paty married Javier Ortiz, a fellow ex-member of Garibaldi. Yet they divorced a little over five years later, in 2005. In a joint letter to the media, Manterola and Ortiz addressed their separation and asked for the public to respect their privacy during this difficult time.[6] She married Forrest Kolb on December 12, 2010 in Xcaret on the Mayan Riviera, Mexico. They were married in a small private wedding with 200 guests and she was dressed by her close friend, Nicolas Felizola.[7]

Acting[edit]

Manterola made her acting debut with ¿Dónde Quedó La Bolita? (1993), a comedy featuring Garibaldi. In 1994, after a Garibaldi live performance in Acapulco, Manterola launched her solo career with the release of Hambre de Amor. Paty’s newfound notoriety allowed her to make the smooth transition into acting. Soon thereafter, Paty earned roles in various telenovelas (soap opera) such as Acapulco, Cuerpo y Alma (1995) and Gente Bien (1997). She received the newcomer of the year award from the Latin American soap opera magazine, TV y Novelas for her portrayal of Lorena on Acapulco, Cuerpo y Alma.[8]

Within a few years, Manterola was a sought after star, acting in several telenovelas such as: Los Angeles de Charlie (Charlie’s Angels), Apuesta por un Amor (Gamble for Love), and Destilando Amor. She has also done cameo appearances in Ugly Betty, Muchas Muchachas and in La Fea Mas Bella. Manterola was nominated for a TVyNovelas Award for Best Lead Actress for her work on Apuesta por un Amor.

While Manterola has received greater acclaim in her native Mexico, she has also had a transnational impact by appearing in American television and films. For instance, she has appeared in HBO‘s Arli$$, Souvenir (1997), The Hazard City (2000), The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood! (2000) and Carman: The Champion (2001).

In her role as Gabriela in the Dukes of Hazzard movie, Manterola demonstrated her bilingual ability as her character was pitted as Bo Duke’s (John Schneider) love interest. A few years prior to the movie’s release, she had enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to study English.

In addition, Manterola had roles on the movies The Singer (2008) and The Perfect Game (2009).

Garibaldi[edit]

Garibaldi was a Mexican group of young men and women, wearing a very free version of the traditional charro costume while singing modern version of traditional songs, causing some controversy. The name Garibaldi comes from Plaza Garibaldi in Mexico City where mariachi bands can be found.

The former members, and their current occupations are:

Discography[edit]

Activism[edit]

Manterola has also been a noted defender of animal rights. On her personal website, Manterola declares: “Hasta los animales mas exoticos merecen vivir en libertad.”[9] (“Even the most exotic animals deserve to live in freedom.”)

As such, in 2001 she posed nude on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). In 2004, she protested Kentucky Fried Chicken‘s cruel treatment of chickens and urged the multimillion-dollar corporation to adhere to a kinder, gentler methodology. More recently, Paty has advocated on behalf of the monarch butterflies that migrate from Alaska to the Mexican state of Michoacán. She donated personal jewelry which was sold at auction to further the cause.[10]

Manterola’s altruism is not solely restricted to animal rights and the environment. In January 2006, she personally donated 1,500 toys for the children of the Delegacion Miguel Hidalgo in Chapultepec. “No hay con qué pagar la sonrisa de un niño,” Manterola said.[10] (“A child’s smile is priceless.”) In 2007, Patricia joined the Baja Una Estrella Foundation to help in the development of education, health, and social development for poor communities in Mexico.[11]

Designing career[edit]

In 2004, Manterola planned to open a business in the Mexican city of Puebla, launching her own line of jeans, “B-good”, suitable for everybody.[citation needed]

Occupation Actress
Known for Tormented, Sense8

Tuppence Middleton (born 21 February 1987) is an English actress. She was nominated for the London Evening Standard Film Awards 2010 for Most Promising Newcomer. Since 2015, she portrays Riley Blue in the television series Sense8.

She has appeared in feature films such as Tormented (2009), Chatroom (2010), Cleanskin (2012), Trance (2013), The Lady Vanishes (2013), The Imitation Game (2014), and Jupiter Ascending (2015), as well as in television series such as Bones (2008), New Tricks (2010), Friday Night Dinner (2011), Sinbad (2012), Spies of Warsaw (2013), and Black Mirror (2013), and Sense8 (2015).

She starred in two British period dramas screened around the same time, Dickensian (2015–16), playing Miss Havisham, and War & Peace (2016), in which she played Russian princess and villain Hélène Kuragina.

Early life[edit]

Tuppence Middleton was born on 21 February 1987 in Bristol, England, to Nigel and Tina Middleton.[1] She was named “Tuppence” after the childhood nickname her grandmother gave to her mother.[2] She was raised in Clevedon, Somerset,[3] with younger brother Josh and older sister Angel.[1]

She attended Bristol Grammar School[4], where she was involved in school plays, including Guys and Dolls, in which she played the lead role. She also attended Stagecoach, a performing arts school in Portishead. She appeared in local drama productions, including a pantomime at the Princes Hall, Clevedon, with her sister.[1]

She subsequently studied acting at the Arts Educational School in Chiswick, London, earning an honours degree in acting.[1]

Career[edit]

Middleton gained a following for her appearance in the 2009 British horror/comedy Tormented.[5] Her character, head girl Justine Fielding, dates one of the most popular boys in school, only to find that he and his friends were responsible for a classmate’s death. She has also appeared in adverts for the chewing gum Extra and Sky TV.

In 2010 she was nominated for the London Evening Standard Film Awards 2010 for Most Promising Newcomer and she starred in Samuel Abrahams‘s BAFTA-nominated short film “Connect”.[6] In 2011, she played the character Tanya Greene in the British sitcom Friday Night Dinner,[7] and Sarah in Sirens. In 2012 she appeared in Cleanskin, a terrorist thriller.[8] In March 2013 she made her professional theatre debut in The Living Room.[9] She also played a minor role in the Danny Boyle film Trance. In 2015, she starred in the Netflix Original Series Sense8 as Riley Blue.

She starred in the 2016 BBC drama War & Peace, playing Russian aristocrat Princess Hélène Kuragin.[10]

The series received critical acclaim and featured fellow young actress Lily James also known for her period dramas. The Daily Express said: “Rising star Tuppence Middleton takes on the role of the delightfully evil Helene Kuragina, who is one half of the incestuous duo. Audiences witnessed her brother getting a little too intimate with his sibling in the first episode before she turned her attentions to Pierre and dug her claws into him. She is a vile character who will use and abuse Pierre without giving him a second thought, to stop the beautiful Helena (Lily James) Pierre real love marrying him.”[citation needed]

Andrew Davies, who adapted War and Peace, described Middleton’s Hélène as “the naughtiest woman on TV at the moment”.[11]

Personal life[edit]

She has in interviews described herself as shy. “I liked to be in my own company, so when I came home from school, I’d just go up to my room and hang out by myself. I wouldn’t really have friends over or go to see friends much. I was very, very shy in public and school, and quite loud and brash at home. As I got older, I auditioned for drama school and shocked myself by getting in.”[12] She has also said she has been asked if she is related to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge: “Since Kate Middleton came around, some people think I’m related to her, but unfortunately, there’s no connection.”[13]

Notable work Broad City

Abbi Jacobson (born February 1, 1984) is an American comedian, writer, actress and illustrator. She is known for co-creating and co-starring in the Comedy Central series Broad City with Ilana Glazer, based on the web series of the same name.[1]

Early life[edit]

Jacobson is the daughter of Susan Komm, an artist, and Alan Jacobson, a graphic designer.[2][3] She is Jewish.[4] She was raised in Wayne, Pennsylvania, where she attended Valley Forge Middle School and Conestoga High School. She studied fine arts and video production at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she studied stand-up comedy for one year with poet Jeremy Sigler with a brief period of studying acting at Emerson College.

She moved to New York City after graduating from MICA in 2006; she began taking classes with the Atlantic Theater Company and the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, where she met Ilana Glazer.[5][6]

Career[edit]

Broad City[edit]

From 2009 to 2011, Jacobson and Glazer wrote and performed in a web series titled Broad City, which focused on their lives in New York. The series was nominated for an ECNY Award for Best Web Series.[5] It was well received by critics and developed a cult following.[7] At the Upright Citizens Brigade, Jacobson and Glazer adapted the series into a live show that they performed in, called Broad City Live.[5]

In 2011, cable network FX, working with Amy Poehler as the producer, purchased a script commitment for the series from Glazer and Jacobson. However, the network did not approve the script and decided not to proceed with development. Glazer and Jacobson then approached Comedy Central, who agreed to purchase the script from FX and order a pilot.[8][9]

Review aggregation website Metacritic noted season 1 received “generally favorable reviews,” giving it a score of 75 out of 100, based on reviews from 14 critics.[11] Karen Valby from Entertainment Weekly described the show as a “deeply weird, weirdly sweet, and completely hilarious comedy.”[12] The Wall Street Journal referred to the show as “Sneak Attack Feminism.” Critic Megan Angelo quotes Abbi Jacobson, main star of Comedy Central’s Broad City: “If you watch one of our episodes, there’s not a big message, but if you watch all of them, I think, they’re empowering to women.”[13] The A.V. Club critic Caroline Framke wrote that Broad City was “worth watching” despite its “well-trod premise,” and that the series is “remarkably self-possessed, even in its first episode.”[14]

Season one of the show received a 96% “Certified Fresh” rating from Rotten Tomatoes, based on reviews from 23 critics, with the site’s consensus stating, “From its talented producers to its clever writing and superb leads, Broad City boasts an uncommonly fine pedigree.”[15] The A.V. Club named Broad City the second best TV show of 2014 for its first season.[16]

In February 2014, Comedy Central renewed the show for a second season.[17] Season two received positive reviews, with Metacritic giving it a score of 89 out of 100, based on reviews from 8 critics, indicating “universal acclaim.”[18] Rotten Tomatoes gave the second season a rating of 100%, based on reviews from 11 critics, with the site’s consensus: “Led by two of the funniest women on TV, Broad City uses its stars’ vibrant chemistry to lend an element of authenticity to the show’s chaotic yet enlightening brand of comedy.”[19]

In January 2015, the series was then renewed for a third season, which premiered on February 17, 2016.[20] In January 2016, the series was renewed for a fourth and a fifth season.[21]
