Cecilia Suárez - Paulina de la Mora, La casa de las flores


La casa de las flores is a Mexican dramatic comedy television series created by Manolo Caro. It follows the story of a seemingly perfect family of florists. But behind this perfection is actually a dark side where secrets and neuroses abound.


Paulina de la Mora is the eldest daughter of the de la Mora family. She manages both her parents' businesses, a flower store and a cabaret, and also takes care of her brothers and sisters. Very loyal, she is willing to do whatever it takes to support her family, even when they are hit by scandals and their image is ruined.

Bisexual and feminist, Paulina is depicted as a woman with a conservative appearance, but who in reality enjoys bonding with drag queens and prisoners, an attribute that the actress, Cecilia Suárez, compares to the "contradiction" of conservative Mexico that refuses to accept its transgressive side.

Also notable for her clothing style, but most notably for her distinctive speaking style and near-universal acclaim, Vogue España describes her as the "best television character of 2018" and says the actress' performance is "the best they have seen in a long time". Paulina de la Mora already holds the title of Mexican pop culture icon.


Cecilia Suárez is a Mexican actress. Her first steps as an actress were made on stage, at the Chicago Steppenwolf Theatre, and she also received the Steppenwolf Theatre Acting Fellowship Award after graduating from college, and participated in the Illinois Shakespeare Festival. She made her film debut in 1999 with the movie "Sexo, pudor y lágrimas", and then went on to play many roles in both film and television. In 2008, her fame grew when she landed a role in the series "Capadocia" (2008-2012), a work that led to her becoming the first Spanish-speaking actress to be nominated for the International Emmy Awards as Best Actress.

A dedicated activist, she puts her fame at the service of several associations, such as Greenpeace, with whom she worked on a campaign to protect Mexican corn in 2006. She also defends civil rights, notably through the United Nations. In 2011, she collaborated with them on the creation of an initiative for human rights in Latin America, and became the spokesperson for their "Declárate" campaign. In 2018, she was named a champion of the "Spotlight" initiative as part of the United Nations campaign to end feminicide in Latin America, and gave a talk entitled "Enough" before their Assembly.

She also leads a project in Mexican public hospitals, with the support of the Ministry of Health, to promote safe childbirth, and speaks out against the culture of machismo. In addition, she is a member of the Mexican government's advisory council that analyzes the representation of machismo and violence against women in the media. She is a strong supporter of the MeToo movement and a vocal advocate against sexism in the Mexican film industry.
