Mexican star Ana Brenda Contreras made a splash in English-language television as part of the new cast of Dynasty, the modernized reboot of the 1980s primetime soap that chronicles the tensions between two feuding billionaire American families.
Her chemistry with costar Grant Show and passionate love scenes in Dynasty have helped reel viewers in. A third season of the soap, on the CW and Netflix, was announced in January.
Before her role in Dynasty, Contreras had starring roles in telenovelas like Amar sin ley, Corazón indomable and La imperdonable.
Since ending her relationship to former telenovela costar Ivan Sánchez, the actress has been single. However this cozy photo she shared on Instagram with handsome Italian photographer Alessandro Morelli, whom she called “amore mío” in the caption, sparked rumors of a possible new romance. Just friends? Time will tell…
No, she is not walking down the aisle just yet! The photo is of her Dynasty character, Crystal.
The Mexican beauty is an ambassador for the renowned jewelry line Tous.
Her gorgeous locks also landed her a gig as spokesperson for Pantene.
Contreras loves Mexican food and gives in to a chicharrón craving now and then. “Everything you see, I owe it to tacos,” she jokes on Instagram.
BREATHING IN THE SCENERY
Being in contact with nature — like on this trip to Quintana Roo, Mexico — is her favorite way to recharge.
THE POWER OF PRAYER
She is very espiritual and prays to Mexico’s Virgin of Guadalupe.
“Sometimes you just have to stop, take a deep breath and put things in to perspective,” she captioned this image, getting a massage in a spa in Cozumel, Mexico.
PROUD OF HER ROOTS
The actress celebrates her Mexican heritage by wearing typical clothes from her country. The braided look is a hit!
