- Sofía Recondo
Sofía Natalia Recondo (born
December 2, 1985) is an Argentine actress and fashion model. She is a native of Buenos Aires. Recondo was inexperienced in the show business world when she was hired to play "Lucía" in " Chiquititas", a major international hit telenovelathat was produced by Telefé. Recondo debuted as an actress on "Chiquititas" in 1998. "Lucía" was an orphaned teenager who was overprotected by her grandmother, and who had no contact with children her age. "Lucía" represented a challenge for the young actress: Since "Lucía" had been kept apart by her grandmother for so long, she lacked speech skills and enjoyed playing with children who were much younger than her, although she found a friend and, later on, romantic interest in "Roña", a character who was "Lucía"'s age and who helped "Lucía" make friends with the older children living in the orphanage house. Because of "Lucía"'s limits, Recondo acted both as a mute and as a (seemingly) mentally challenged child at the same time.
"Chiquititas" became an international hit, giving Recondo celebrity both in Argentina and abroad, including places like
Russia, Israeland other Latin American countries.
Sofía Recondo left "Chiquititas" in
1999, and has been working as a model ever since. Unlike many of her "Chiquititas" co-stars, Recondo has not participated in other "Chiquititas" related films or television shows, and she has not returned to television since her stint as a member of the "Chiquititas" cast.
