In 2002 she releases the album Selection, with Carlos Jean. She also stars in Ramon Salazar’s Piedras and 20 centímetros, Daniel Azancot’s La reina del bar Canalla, María Ripoll’s Utopía, Frédéric Schoendoerffer’s Agentes secretos, Xabier Ribera’s A+ (Amas), and Marcelo Piñeyro’s El método.

In 2006 she records his solitaire album Walkabout and participates in Las vidas de Celia, by Antonio Chavarrías and Fernando Cámara’s Trastorno. Next year she worked with Icíar Bollaín in Mataharis and, years later, in También la lluvia.
