Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Tall, thin comic actress born in Toronto, Canada, but raised in Cuba. She made her debut as a performer in Havana in 1937. In the 1940s she relocated in Mexico where she has worked since. Vitola frequently appeared with Tin Tan, in roles of varying importance, but was always a welcome, eccentric addition to the cast. In later years she played some dramatic roles as well. She was married and widowed twice; her second husband was ventriloquist Alex King. One of her sons by her first husband is actor Humberto Elizondo, former head of ANDA, the Mexican actors' union.
