From Child Stars to Famous Adults

Many child actors continue successful careers into adulthood. Whether they appear on classic telenovelas or current shows, you’ll keep seeing these artists who live on in viewers’ hearts even after their early roles.

This contributes to the ongoing growth of the acting industry in Mexico. As of the last quarter of 2023, there were 4.18k actors in the country [3]. What’s noteworthy is that this talent extends beyond borders, making its way onto the DISH screen.

Some Latin mega-stars launched their careers at a young age, like Ludwika Paleta of the classic Carrusel and Danna Paola from Plaza Sésamo in Mexico.

Others may remember Lucero’s career taking off on the Mexican kid’s show Chiquilladas before age 10. RBD star Anahí also got her start there.

Pop star Belinda began acting in the telenovela Amigos Por Siempre when she was only 10 years old. And legendary crooner Luis Miguel emerged at age 10 with his smash album Un Sol.

Actors, actresses and singers keep shining on DishLATINO’s Spanish channels. No matter how television evolves or viewers’ tastes change, their talent adapts. After scientist John Logie Baird transmitted the first images in 1926, the rest is history [4]
