Marga López (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈmarɣa ˈlopes]; 21 June 1924 – 4 July 2005), born Catalina Margarita López Ramos, was an Argentine-born Mexican actress. Born in Argentina, she later acquired Mexican nationality.


Her parents were Pedro López Sánchez and Dolores Ramos Nava. She had six siblings: Juan, Miguel, Dolores, Pedro, María and Manuel. She debuted in show business in her home country as a child, with her siblings, in the group known as Los Hermanitos López.

In 1936, they journeyed through Latin America including Mexico. There she met her future husband Carlos Amador, a cinema producer, whom she married twice, in 1941 and in 1961. They had two children, Carlos and Manuel. In 1964, she married actor Arturo de Córdova, who died in 1973. They acted together in Sinful.

She appeared in more than 80 movies in the Golden Age of the Cinema of Mexico, sharing credits with Pedro Infante, Luis Aguilar, Ernesto Alonso, Tin Tan and Amparo Rivelles. She also appeared in many telenovelas, her last one being Bajo la misma piel.


By 2005, she was an emphysema patient and had acute episodes of bronchitis. Reportedly, she was a chain smoker and did not give up tobacco until 2004. On Tuesday, 19 April 2005, she suffered a heart attack while undergoing a health check-up test at a hospital in Mexico City. She died on July 4, 2005, from cardiac arrhythmia.
