Adela Christian Bach was born on May 9, 1959 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After graduating with a degree in law Christian Bach moved to Mexico to become an actress. She started working in plays and in films, where her voice was often dubbed to conceal her Argentine accent. She obtained a small role in the worldwide hit telenovela ‘Los ricos también lloran’ in 1979 and four years later a starring role in the successful ‘Bodas de odio’. In 1986 she co-starred with Humberto Zurita in ‘De pura sangre’ and in the same year they were married. Ten years later and after a string of successful productions with Televisa the Zurita-Bach couple decided to form their own production company Zuba producciones and to move to nascent network TV Azteca. Two years later they produced two telenovelas for the station, ‘La chacala’ and ‘Azul Tequila’, a successful production that launched the career of Bárbara Mori and Mauricio Ochmann.
Bach appeared as Margaret in her only Euro-western “Revenge of the Black Wolf” (1980).
In the 1980s she recorded an album as a solo singer, but the album lacked success and interest from the public.
She has been the image and spokesperson of the Mexican ceramic tile empire Interceramic for over 22 years. Her commercials are famous in Mexico and have made her likeness a household item.
Today we celebrate Christian Bach’s 55th birthday.
