Actress. Born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the Canary Islands, she was the daughter of author Mercedes Pinto. After some stage experience in Montevideo, Uruguay, she made her motion picture debut in Cuba's first "talkie", "La Serpiente Roja" (1937). In 1941 Foronda went to Hollywood and made a screen test for the drama "For Whom the Bell Tolls", but the part went to Ingrid Bergman. She was then invited to Mexico by director Indio Fernández to appear in his film "La Isla de la Pasión", and settled there for the rest of her life. Her films include "Ahora Seremos Felices" (1938), "La Abuelita" (1942), "Los Tres Mosqueteros" (1942), "El Museo del Crimen" (1943), "Sinfonía de una Vida" (1945) and "Asesinato en los Estudios" (1946). From the 1950s Foronda was active in television, appearing on the shows "La Desconocida", "El Cuarto Mandamiento", "La Recogida", "Soledad", and "Para toda la Vida". She died in Mexico City.
