Profile Bio Text
Marisol (1948) was a Spanish child star in the sixties. When she became an adult she stayed a popular actress and singer under her real name, Pepa Flores.
Pepa Flores was discovered by her future producer Manuel J. Goyanes on Spanish Television in 1959. Her cinema debut was in Un rayo de luz (1960, Luis Lucia). In the following decade she starred in a dozen musical comedy-dramas. She also made records, did recitals and TV-shows. The title song of her third movie, Tómbola (1962, Luis Lucia), became a Spanish classic.
In 1982 Marisol married flamenco dancer and choreographer Antonio Gades in Cuba. The best man to their wedding was Fidel Castro. She acted with Gades in Bodas de sangre (1981, Carlos Saura) and Carmen (1983, Carlos Saura). She worked then under the name Pepa Flores. In 1985, when she was still high in her career, she left everything, returned to her homeland, Malaga, and has lived as a housewife and a humanitarian activist since then. She received many invitations to return and requests for TV interviews, but she has declined all of them. Her daughter Maria Esteve is now a well known actress in Spain.
