Actress. She began her career in television as the presenter of the programme "3,2,1... Contacto". Later she gained fame in children's television show "Dabadabadá", along with the entertainer Torrebruno. Sonia made her 1984 cinema debut in Gonzalo Suárez's film "Epílogo". Her credits also include "Violines y Trompetas" (1984), "Perras Callejeras" (1985), "Segunda Enseñanza" and "Los Invitados" (1987). Her career entered a decline after 1985 when a magazine featured photographs of her naked on a beach in Spain - a scandal in the 1980s. This, along with the death of her mother, provoked a long period of depression, which resulted in her becoming a heroin addict. She died of AIDS at the age of 30.
