Cristian Castro was born on December 8, 1974, in Mexico City. He is considered the third most popular Latin American artist in the world. To many, the singer is known as just Cristian. Thanks to the charming good looks and an ability to perform romantic ballads in a stunning manner, Cristian became a Mexican sex symbol. The public’s curiosity about his personal life often exceeded the interest in his other achievements. Cristian is a frequent tabloid guest and the paparazzi love following him.
This overwhelming interest in his life helped Cristian earn immense popularity but brought him some suffering as well. Especially when it came to his love life. Castro was married several times and none of his unions lasted longer than four years.
Even though his love life was problematic, Cristian managed to reach big heights in the music industry. Almost all of his albums made it into the charts. The singer is also well-known for following strict work ethic standards, which is a rarity in the music industry.
Thanks to the stellar career of his mother Veronica Castro, who was an actress, Cristian started conquering the stage at a very young age. In 1981, he debuted in the soap opera El Derecho de Nacer together with his mom. He continued appearing in telenovelas until the end of the 1980’s. When the 90’s came, Cristian started thinking about a music career.
