One of the quintessential vamps of Mexican cinema from the late 1950s through the early '70s, Lorena Velázquez is the daughter of character actor Víctor Velázquez, and the older sister of actress Tere Velázquez. She made her screen debut in 1955, and her role as Thorina, queen of the vampires, in _Santo contra las mujeres vampiros, El (1961)_, elevated her to the status of cult icon. She is still active on TV and in the occasional film.
