Early life and career

Meza was born in Juchipila, Zacatecas, the daughter of Emilia García and Hector Meza.[2] She was cast by Roberto Gómez Bolaños to play "Doña Florinda" (and later "La Popis") in the Televisa sitcom El Chavo del Ocho, which became a major international hit. The show lasted from 1972 to 1980 (although the sketch would continue until 1992), during which she and Gómez Bolaños began a lifelong romance that never produced any children. During her tenure on the Chespirito television series, she was also known to have played Édgar Vivar's character "Botija"'s wife "María Expropiación Petronila Lascuráin y Torquemada", famously known as "La Chimoltrufia" Meza also participated prominently in Chespirito's other main sitcom, El Chapulín Colorado.

After production of Chespirito ended in 1995, she and Gómez Bolaños began touring extensively. They married in a civil ceremony on 19 November 2004 after a 27-year relationship.

Meza also participated in several movies, and produced telenovelas such as La Dueña, Alguna Vez Tendremos Alas, and Milagro y Magia, in which she also acted.
