Talia, also known as Thalía or Ariadna Sodi Miranda, was born on August 26, 1972, in Mexico City. From a young age, she embarked on a career in the entertainment industry and achieved success in various fields.


Early Career in Music

Talia's first musical experience was with the group "Din Din." At the age of 14, she joined the renowned music group "Timberiche" and replaced Sasha at the invitation of Luis de Llano. She later appeared in the musical "Vaselina" and got acquainted with different members of the Timberiche group. Talia's music career began to gain momentum with her child group "Din Din," which secured second place in the "Jugomos a cantar" festival.


Rise to Fame in Television

In 1987, Talia made her debut in the TV series "La pobre Señorita Limantour." This led to roles in popular TV series such as "Quinceañera" and "Luz y Sombra." In 1989, she gained significant attention when she replaced Paulina Rubio during a concert. This marked the beginning of Talia's solo career, and she traveled to Los Angeles with her new producer and close friend, Alfredo Diaz Ordaz. At just 17 years old, Talia started working with Madonna's mentor, Florence Riggs.


Successful Albums and TV Series

In 1990, Talia released her first album, "THALIA," which sparked controversy in Mexico due to its provocative themes. Despite being banned on radio, the album gained popularity. In 1992, her album "Love" was released, and she was offered roles in a series of TV shows with titles starting with "Maria...". These TV series, including "Maria Mercedes," "Marimar," and "Maria la del Barrio," brought Talia's sweet image and voice to Europe and Asia.

Transition to Hollywood

In 1996, Talia decided to focus on her music career and temporarily leave TV series. However, her dreams of conquering Hollywood persisted. While the Philippines became her second home, she continued to perform in concerts and gained recognition at the highest level. In July 1997, Talia released the album "Amor a la mexicana" and embarked on a promotional tour throughout Latin America. She also toured in Spain in September 1997.
