Paulina Gómez Torres (born 29 July 1991) known professionally as Paulina Goto is a Mexican actress, singer, and television hostess, who first gained popularity for her debut role in the Mexican telenovela Niña de mi Corazón in 2010. She was a member of the popular Mexican-Argentine pop group, Eme 15, formed by Televisa producer Pedro Damián, from 2011 to 2014.

Early life

Paulina Goto was born in Monterrey, Mexico. She has one younger brother named Eduardo. Her mother is a psychologist. Her father is a singer and musician who often co-writes songs with Goto. When she was 5 years old, Goto and her family moved from Monterrey to Tampico, Tamaulipas where she spent the remainder of her childhood and adolescence. As a young child, she participated in dance classes and began taking ballet lessons when she was four years old. She trained as a rhythmic gymnast from age five until she was fourteen, attending Rítmica Escuela de Gimnasia in Tampico. Goto earned recognition as a state and national champion and represented Mexico in international competitions. In 2000, she competed in rhythmic gymnastics at her first national Olympics tournament in Guadalajara, Mexico. In December 2010, she returned to Rítmica Escuela de Gimnasia to participate in a special Christmas themed performance alongside the school's current students.

Goto completed her primary education at Escuela Americana de Tampico ("The American School of Tampico" in English), a private bi-lingual school with an emphasis on American-style education. She participated in the school choir from an early age. She briefly attended the Tampico campus of Tec de Monterrey but later completed her secondary schooling via online correspondence upon moving to Mexico City when she was 17.

Acting career

Early career (2008-2011)

Goto began her television career in 2008 as a co-host on the youth-targeted television news show, Roomies, which was produced locally for Televisa del Golfo in Tampico. She spent a year on the show before leaving in 2009. During her time on "Roomies", she and some of the cast members were invited to audition for Centro de Educación Artística, the free drama school run by media giant, Televisa, in Mexico City. One month after her CEA audition, Goto was accepted into the school and moved to Mexico City. During her first year, she studied voice, acting, and dance. When she was 18 years old, CEA held auditions for director Pedro Damián's (best known for his work with Latin-pop group, RBD) newest telenovela. Though she had no prior professional acting experience, she was cast as the lead in Niña de mi Corazón, an updated version of Damian's 1997 telenovela, Mi Pequeña Traviesa. Goto played the dual role of Andrea Paz and Paz's imaginary twin brother, Andres Paz. Following her casting in the series, Goto discontinued her studies at CEA to pursue a full-time acting career. Filming for Niña de mi Corazón began in January 2010 in Mexico City and ended in July 2010. The telenovela premiered on March 8, 2010 in Mexico and ended on July 9, 2010. It premiered on Univision in the U.S. on February 23, 2011. In the spring of 2011, Goto made her theatre debut as the lead female protagonist in the play El Knack directed by Odiseo Bichir, and starring Mexican actors, José Ángel Bichir and Alfonso Dosal.
