Litzy Vanya Domínguez Balderas. (better known as just Litzy) is a Mexican-born actress (actriz) and singer (cantante) who is well known for having been in the Mexican singing group Jeans, and for her roles in Telenovelas: Televisa's DKDA Sueños de Juventude, Telemundo's Daniela and Amarte Asi, and most recently Venevisión's telenovela Pecadora. Probably her most successful recent song is "La Rosa." She sang the entrada song (opening theme song) for both Daniela ("Sobreviveré") and Amarte Asi ("Amarte Asi"). She also has recorded a theme song entitled "Pecadora" for Pecadora. However, as recently aired, the telenovela is not using that song for its entrada. Amarte Asi has also been aired with a different title, Frijolito. It is also notable that Litzy won a sort of acting-contest reality show run by Telemundo entitled Protagonistas de la Fama. Apparently her winning of that contest landed her the starring role in Amarte Asi. She also was the star of Daniela and is now starring in Pecadora.
After making Amarte Asi, Litzy studied acting in Los Angeles for the better part of a year, evidently with the desire to do acting in Hollywood, a desire not fulfilled. After acting school, she has been credited with roles in three obscure Mexican movie titles before obtaining her role in Pecadora: "Vestidos y otras anécdotas," a short movie entitled "Subversiòn Total" (2007), and "Borderline (2009/II)." Apparently she was not the star in any of these. A writer has been unable to find any source for DVDs of these titles or any way to see them.
According to Spanish custom, Litzy's apellido (father's name, equivalent to "last name" in English) is Domínguez. Her mother's maiden name was Balderas. It is very doubtful that Litzy Domínguez is the daughter of Jose Rodríguez ("El Puma"). Her apellido is given as Domínguez, rather than Rodríguez. Postings have appeared on the internet allegedly by her father, General Domínguez (MSNGroups; Litzy fan club) and by her sister (Amarte Asi site of Telenovela-World) saying that the Rodríguez paternity is false. A possible source of this confusion is that one of Rodríguez' daughters (Liliana Rodríguez) was on Protagonistas de la Fama (Telemundo) at the same time as Litzy and somehow someone mixed the data, posted it on Wikipedia, and it spread from there.
It would be remarkable if Litzy were El Puma's daughter, as that would make four daughters of El Puma who are major actresses in telenovelas (TV serial dramas that are like soap operas, but come to an end after about a year). Three daughters of El Puma are major actresses: Lilibeth Morillo, Liliana Rodríguez, and Genesis Rodríguez being Rodríguez' daughters.
Litzy's lastest telenovela being aired as of December, 2009, is Pecadora a remake of Como en el Cine, being aired by TCTelevisión Ecuador and JustinTV.com. "Como en el Cine" probably borrowed some ideas from a Hollywood movie, "Coyote Ugly," including having girls dance on a bar.
Pecadora has been announced by Univisión as a forthcoming telenovela for its network. Documentation for Litzy and Pecadora can be found at the Amarte-Asi forum of Telenovela-World.com.
