Biography

Flor Silvestre (born Guillermina Jiménez Chagoya; August 16, 1929) is a Mexican actress and ranchera singer. Regarded as one of the great folkloric leading ladies of the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, Silvestre is perhaps best-known for starring in the films Primero soy mexicano, El bolero de Raquel, and the Academy Award-nominated drama Ánimas Trujano.

During the peak of her career she married her frequent co-star Antonio Aguilar, with whom she procreated the actors and singers Antonio Aguilar Jr. and Pepe Aguilar. Besides being internationally recognized in cinema, Silvestre also became the image of a popular comic book entitled, La Llanera Vengadora.[4] She is the elder sister of singer and actress Enriqueta Jiménez.

Flor Silvestre was born Guillermina Jiménez Chagoya in Salamanca, Guanajuato on August 16, 1929, to Jesús Jiménez Cervantes and María de Jesús Chagoya Peña. She is the third of seven children: Francisco, Raquel, (herself), José Luis, Enriqueta, María de la Luz, and Arturo.

At the age of 13, Silvestre along with her family moved to central Mexico City, where she began her first steps in her musical career singing such ranchera songs as “La canción mexicana”, “Yo también soy mexicana” and “El herradero”.
