The phenomenon that RDB caused, not only in Mexico but throughout the world, made all the artists who participated in this telenovela further catapult their careers. One of these cases was that of Ninel Conde who, although she was already well known, helped her reach new audiences.
When Ninel Conde appeared in the famous Mexican soap opera “Rebelde” she was 28 years old and played Alma Rey, the mother of the young and attractive Roberta, the character of Dulce María.
For the actress, her character was very special, since at many points she felt identified: “There were very mixed feelings because ‘Alma Rey’ was a single woman with a girl, she is a single mother and works in this medium (the one with shows ), so I did feel identified in several things with Alma”.
