Cecilia Suarez

Actress

"The ability to make a decision happens if you know how to listen to yourself."

Cecilia is a native of Tampico, Mexico. She is a member of Chicago’s Theater With a View ensemble and, despite a packed schedule, always makes time to give back — whether as a spokeswoman for the United Nations’ Human Rights Initiative “Declárate” or working on her personal project to promote safe childbirth in Mexico City’s public hospitals.

A graduate of the University of Illinois Theatre department, Cecilia is the first Spanish- speaking actress nominated for an International Emmy in the Best Actress category, a result of her role on the HBO series Capadocia.
