Then she renounced her part as an ambassadress (called "paquita") to Xuxa Meneghel and to be a host on MTV Latino. In 1995 she was called to play the role of Patricia Palmer's niece - Verónica Iturbe Montalbán in the telenovela "Sweet Ana" (1995). Afterwards she appeared in "90-60-90 Models" (1996), and a year later in the role of Valeria García Méndez de Salerno in "Rich and Famous" (1997), which got attention all over Argentina and abroad. Already in 1996 she participated in the theatre play "Las mariposas son libres". In 1998 she co-hosted with Fernando Bravo the gala of Premios Martín Fierro (an equivalent of Emmy Awards in Argentina). She also appeared in the film An Argentinian in New York (1998) with Guillermo Francella, as an ambitious teenage lady who dreams of being a triumph in the music world. The film beat all audience records with 1,634,702 spectators, and was the initial kick-off to her singing career.
