María Elisa Camargo (Spanish pronunciation: [maˈɾi.a eˈlisa kaˈmaɾɣo]; born in Guayaquil, Ecuador) is a Colombian-Ecuadorian actress and activist. She started out as a contestant on The X Factor Colombia. She began appearing in musical telenovelas after studying theatre as a child. Her first leading part in a Latin American film, Maria Alegria for Mark of Desire (Telefutura/Univision), resulted from this. Camargo's international acting career took off when she relocated to Mexico; she landed numerous villain roles in Televisa's primetime programs. She received an invitation to compete as a star in Univision's Mira Quien Baila and was named one of the "50 Most Beautiful" by People en Español. She was hired by Telemundo to be their primetime star, and her show broke all previous records for the network, defeating Univision. With Ozuna as her co-star in the Dominican film Los Leones, Camargo's career has transitioned to the silver screen. She went to Los Angeles lately and received her first American acting opportunity as a guest actor for Cinemax's Warrior. She also acted in the Dominican film Infatuation. She played the character of Patricia Teheran in the Colombian telenovela Tarde lo conocí. She also appeared in Bajo el mismo cielo (as Adela Morales, the star in the series). She starred in Telemundo's hit show En otra piel as a double character: Mónica Serrano and Adriana Aguilar. Her last participation with Telemundo was on the series El Barón, where she starred as Isabel.
