Reyna, Cornelio

(1940-1997)
   stocky singer/composer who, after some brief appearances in Antonio Aguilar films (with Ramón Ayala as "Los Relámpagos del Norte," a duo which lasted from 1961-73), rather surprisingly became a leading man in Mexican cinema of the 1970s. However, his period of stardom was brief, and Reyna returned to singing for a living afterwards. Married several times, including once to actress/singer Mercedes Castro. His son, Cornelio Reyna Jr., is also a professional singer.
