If Ana Obregón can boast of anything - apart from her impeccable professional career - it is being one of the few celebrities on the social scene in our country who needs no introduction. Elegant in each of her appearances, Ana is one of those people who can boast of her versatility: actress, dancer, presenter, writer, screenwriter and graduate in Biology from the Complutense University of Madrid. There is little that Ana can resist. Obregón has made headlines with her professional projects, but also with her personal experiences. Today this 'celebrity' turns 68, and she does it at a good time, despite having recently gone through the worst years of her life.
The truth is that in every project in which Obregón usually participates, it ends in success. A life like that of the woman from Madrid could not not be told, which is why the team responsible for Cuéntame, Grupo Ganga, announced last year that he was preparing a series about his professional career. Ana was one of the first Spanish actresses capable of conquering the interpretive market on the other side of the pond. She did it with her interpretation in Bolero (1984), together with the sex symbol of the time, Bo Derek; She also played her role as Marta in The A-Team (1986), rubbing shoulders with great faces on the film scene such as Robert DeNiro or Steven Spielberg. At that time, she sported a wavy and brown hair, unlike her current and characteristic blonde of hers.
After a decade focused on cinema, he was finally making his leap to the small screen. This definitely marked her career. In the 1980s, Ana became one of the most popular faces on television. It was thanks to programs like Como Pedro por la casa de ella or ¿Qué apuestamos?, a program that made her a true superstar. The latter and her success, catapulted her towards the Chimes, which she presented for the first time in 1994, then in 1995 and also in 2004. A space in which we have seen her on numerous occasions, the last one, in those of this past 2022.
Although her good work as a presenter was remarkable, her passion for acting made her continue her professional career. She participated in series such as Hostal Royal Manzanares (1996) or At eleven at home (1998). However, she achieved the unthinkable after taking a risk and trying her luck as a screenwriter with a project that she herself starred in: Ana y los Siete (2007). A series slightly based on The Sound of Music that nobody seemed to bet on, but which became one of the great fictional successes on television at the time. A series that was not without controversy, since it even took it to court to denounce that the producers changed the end of the fiction without consulting it.
After this great disappointment, Ana withdrew from acting in series, but returned to appear on television, in programs such as Look who dances! or in the films La mirada del otro (2007) or a cameo in 'Torrente 4: Lethal Crisis' (2011). She has also been seen as a magnificent host of events, and also in some sporadic appearances on programs where she has been interviewed.
As far as his look is concerned, there is no doubt that Obregón's style has changed with the passage of time. The presenter is now in her best stylistic moment, in which she has wanted to continue fighting for sensuality to show that sexy clothes do not understand age. Ana has always been characterized by pronounced necklines and bombshell silhouettes, and she has been able to adapt what have been her style keys to a new era. Undoubtedly, a clear example of her good taste in fashion and her elegance.
In recent years, his professional career has inevitably been interrupted by one of the worst episodes of his life. Her son, Aless Lequio – the result of her relationship with Alessandro Lequio – was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a very aggressive cancer that caused the presenter to drop everything to focus solely and exclusively on the young man's recovery. Unfortunately, the young man ended up passing away on May 13, 2020, at the age of 27. Since then, Ana has gone through one of the most complicated moments in her life, which has worsened after saying goodbye to her, also a few months after her parents, Ana María Obregón and Antonio García.
Despite all these hard moments, Ana does not lose her characteristic smile. The projects that she has in hand now are helping her move forward. After having fulfilled her son's dream with the Aless Lequio Foundation, which raises funds for cancer research and diagnosis, the actress will also bring to light the book she has written about the young man's story, which was started by himself and that, unfortunately, could not finish. Because if there is something that moves Ana towards the future, it is to fulfill the dreams of her Aless.
