Personal life[edit]

In April 1999, Orozco married actor Julian Arango, but the marriage lasted only 10 months. Since 2004, she has lived in Bogotá, Colombia. From 2005 to 2012, she was married to Argentine musician Martín Quaglia. Quaglia and Orozco have two daughters, Lucrecia (b. 11 June 2004 in Bogotá, Colombia) and Mia (b.

Career[edit]

Ana María Orozco made her television debut as a child alongside her father, Luis Fernando Orozco in La envidia (1973), but her career began in earnest a decade later with the series Pequeños Gigantes (1983). One of her most memorable performances was as a secretary (Verônica Murillo) in Perro Amor (1998).[3] She is best known to fans around the world as the original Betty from the popular Colombian telenovela Yo soy Betty, la fea (I am Betty, the ugly one) and its spinoff Eco moda. Her role on Betty La Fea and the character’s unattractive/ugly duckling trademark has inspired several international versions, including the Mexican serial La fea más bella and the critically acclaimed American smash hit Ugly Betty. According to The New York Times, the original version itself become one of the world’s most popular television shows.[4]
