Mori in one sentence – Barbara is a very talented actress and an extremely feminine and sensual woman.
I get very easily infatuated; I always fall in love and then I cannot be alone… but I am trying not to fall in love this time. I am learning to be with myself.
Barbara was born in Montevideo, Uruguay to a Mexican mother and a Japanese/Uruguayan father. Her parents divorced when she was 3 years old which is why she spent her early childhood between Mexico and Uruguay. However, at age of 10 she moved permanently to Mexico City, Mexico where she lives to this day.
Barbara was only 14 years old when a fashion designer Marcos Toledo invited her to work as a model. By the age of 17 she was independent and she decided to live by herself.
In 1998, Barbara got her first leading role as “Azul” in the series Azul Tequila and the new Mexican television star was born.
