Who is Valentina Zenere?
Argentine actress, singer and model Valentina Zenere was born in Buenos Aires on 15 January 1997, making Capricorn her zodiac sign. She’s appeared in only eight TV series and one movie, and is perhaps known best for portraying Camila in three episodes of the hit drama series “Cable Girls”, which starred Ana Fernandez, Yon Gonzalez and Blanca Suarez, and was created by Gema R. Neira and Ramon Campos. Set in the 1920s, the series follows four women who’ve just begun working at a phone company as operators; it aired from 2017 through 2020, and won five of its eight award nominations.
Valentina’s currently shooting for new episodes of the popular series “Elite”.
Education and early life
Valentina was raised alongside her younger sister Luciana in Buenos Aires, by their mother Nadia and father Sergio Zenere; she rarely speaks about her sister and parents in public, as she respects their privacy, but it’s believed that her father’s a businessman, her mother a housewife, and her sister a model.
One can say that Valentina was somewhat thrown into the entertainment industry as she was only four when she started appearing in commercials, and was six when she began performing in theatre plays. She was 13 when she made her debut TV series appearance, playing Alai Morales Romero in the 2010 episode “El Muro” of the adventure comedy “Casi Angeles”, which starred China Suarez and Emilia Attias, and was created by Cris Morena. It follows five teenagers who’ve united at an orphanage, and have now embarked on an adventure together; the series aired from 2007 through 2010 and was nominated for two awards.
Valentina studied at a local high school in Buenos Aires, while simultaneously making a name for herself in the entertainment industry; she matriculated in 2014, a year ahead of her peers, and then chose not to pursue a college degree.
Roles in TV series
The year 2011 saw Valentina play Jessica Cervantes in two episodes of the romantic action comedy “Los Unicos”, and in 2013 and 2014, she played Mara in 11 episodes of the romantic fantasy comedy “Aliados”, which starred Pablo Martinez and Boy Olmi, and follows 12 humans who’ve been tasked with proving that humanity can change for the better, or it will be wiped off the face of Earth.
From 2016 through 2018, Valentina portrayed the lead character Ambar Smith in all 220 episodes of the hit musical family comedy “Soy Luna”, which also starred Karol Sevilla and Ruggero Pasquarelli, and was created by Jorge Edelstein; it follows Luna Valente who’s moved to Argentina from Mexico, and has fallen in love with roller skating.

Her only other TV series role has been playing Isadora Artinan in 16 episodes of the hit crime thriller “Elite”, which today stars Itzan Escamilla and Omar Ayuso, and was created by Carlos Montero and Dario Madrona. It follows three teenagers who’ve enrolled at a private school in Spain, while their clash with the wealthy students has now led to murder; the series has been airing since 2018, and has won four of its 14 award nominations.
