Laura Zapata : biography

July 30, 1956 -

Laura Guadalupe Zapata Miranda () (born on 30 July 1956) is a Mexican telenovela actress. She has acted in Televisa productions most of her life.


In September 2002, Laura and her sister Ernestina were kidnapped and taken to an unspecified location. The news of their kidnapping made headlines across Latin America and among the Spanish-speaking television channels of the United States. Thalía is married to billionaire Tommy Mottola, so it was speculated that their captors would ask for a large sum of money. Instead, Laura was released 18 days after her kidnapping, and her sister Ernestina was released on the 34th day.
