Jurado, Katy

(María Cristina Jurado García)
(1924 or '25?-2002)
   Mexican actress, on-screen from the 1940s, who also had a significant Hollywood career in the 1950s and afterwards. Jurado, who was born in Guadalajara, is perhaps best-known internationally for her role as the former lover of Gary Cooper in High Noon (for which she won a Golden Globe Award as Best Supporting Actress; she also received an Academy Award nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category for Broken Lance). She was married to author Víctor Velázquez and then for a time to actor Ernest Borgnine. In the '70s and '80s, Jurado appeared in some Mexican films in character leads (cf Barrio de campeones), but was off-screen for more than a decade until returning for Arturo Ripstein's El evangelio de las maravillas (1997). In the summer of 1998, Jurado suffered serious medical problems while visiting her family near Monterrey, and had to undergo a series of operations. Best Co-Starring Actress Ariel for El bruto ('52); Best Actress Ariel for the "Caridad" episode of Fe, esperanza y caridad ('72); nominated as Best Actress for La seducción ('79). In 1997 she received the Ariel de Oro for her career as an "actress of Mexico and the world."
