Miami, FL – February 16th, 2015) – With great sadness we inform fans, colleagues and press members that Mexican actress and singer, Lorena Rojas, passed away today in Miami at 44 years of age, after facing a courageous battle against cancer.
Lorena, who bravely defeated the disease at different stages since being diagnosed in 2008, took her last breath peacefully in her home, surrounded by the love of her family, her boyfriend and her closest friends.
Lorena Rojas was one of the most beloved actresses and leaves behind a great legacy, with a brilliant artistic career where she stood out in internationally acclaimed Novelas such as “El Cuerpo del Deseo,” “Pecados Ajenos,” “Alcanzar Una Estrella” and her most recent project, the series “Demente Criminal.” She also shined in the big screen with five movies and in theaters with “Manos Quietas” and “Aventurera.” Besides her numerous roles as lead actress, Lorena was able to fulfill, not too long ago, her biggest musical dream as composer and singer of “Hijos del Sol.” This children’s CD was inspired by her daughter Luciana, who will now be living with her aunt, actress Mayra Rojas, and her adoptive father, just like Lorena had intended.
Following her family’s wishes, LatinWE, who represented Lorena Rojas from 2007 until 2009, will continue to share any information that will be released on her behalf and asks that the privacy of her family members be respected in such difficult times.
Lorena takes a step into eternal life leaving as her greatest legacy the love for animals and for art in all its forms, her tender devotion to her daughter, her passion for life, the appreciation of all her Lobitas and fans who she loved until the end and her rejoice towards the most anticipated time of her day: a good, fun dinner with her family and friends who will love her forever.
Rest in peace Lorena Rojas, our courageous fighter. We will always remember you, just like you wanted, enjoying life, with your extraordinary adventurous smile.
ROLAND EMMERICH TO BE HONORED AT
26TH ANNUAL GLAAD MEDIA AWARDS IN LOS ANGELES
Channing Tatum to present the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to Emmerich
Los Angeles, Tuesday, February 17, 2015 – GLAAD, the nation’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) media advocacy organization, today announced it will honor writer, producer, director, and philanthropist Roland Emmerich at the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton on March 21, 2015.
Channing Tatum will present the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to Emmerich. Tatum starred in the Emmerich film White House Down and will next be seen starring in Magic Mike XXL, The Hateful Eight and Hail, Cesar.
The 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards are presented by Delta Air Lines, Hilton, Ketel One Vodka, and Wells Fargo; and Official Presenting Partners Amazon and Bud Light. The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives. The GLAAD Media Awards also fund GLAAD’s work to amplify stories from the LGBT community and issues that build support for equality.
Emmerich will receive GLAAD’s Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which is presented to an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality. The award is named after a successful casting director, who devoted the last part of his life to raising awareness in the entertainment industry about the discrimination faced by LGBT and HIV-positive people. Previous Stephen F. Kolzak honorees include Laverne Cox, Wanda Sykes, Rufus Wainwright, Melissa Etheridge, Bill Condon, Todd Haynes, Alan Ball, Ellen DeGeneres, and Sir Ian McKellen.
Roland Emmerich is one of the world’s most talented and sought-after directors. His films include the blockbusters 2012, Day After Tomorrow, Stargate, Independence Day, The Patriot, and White House Down. Emmerich has recently completed filming Stonewall, a drama about the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City, a major turning point in the struggle for LGBT equality.
In addition to his work in film and television, Emmerich has significantly contributed to several non-profit organizations, including but not limited to, Outfest’s Legacy Project, dedicated to preserving LGBT film history; The Los Angeles LGBT Center; Freedom to Marry; and the Cambodian Children’s Fund.
“As one of Hollywood’s most sought-after film directors, Roland Emmerich has entertained audiences across the globe. His generosity has touched the lives of countless LGBT people, bringing shelter to homeless youth and preserving culture-changing stories that help close the gap to full acceptance,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “Now, with the upcoming release of ‘Stonewall,’ millions of moviegoers all across the world will see the harms of anti-LGBT discrimination and learn about the historic riots that forever changed equality in America.”
Additional special guests and honorees for the Los Angeles will be announced.
In January, GLAAD announced 104 nominees in 21 English-language categories, and 40 Spanish-language nominees in 10 categories. Nominees for the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards can be found here: www.glaad.org/mediaawards/
