Ana María Casanova (born August 16, 1946), known by her stage name Moria Casán, is an Argentine actress and TV personality. Casán made her theatre debut in 1970 and quickly became one of the country’s leading vedettes during Argentina’s Golden Age of Revue. Her sex symbol status was further cemented during the late 1970s and 1980s, as she starred in various sexual comedy films alongside Alberto Olmedo, Jorge Porcel and Susana Giménez. Since the mid-1980s, Casán has also established herself as an important TV personality, hosting various sketch comedy programs and talk shows. Most recently, Casán was a judge in the popular TV competition Bailando por un Sueño from 2006 to 2017. She currently hosts the TV show Incorrectas and continues starring in several theatrical productions.
Casán remains a popular figure in the Argentine show business. Her insult comedy and off-colour humour, popularized through her usual feuds with other media personalities, have generated phrases that are now part of the national lexicon — the press nicknamed her “karateka tongue”. In 2013, the Buenos Aires Herald wrote that “[her] larger-than-life persona is a pop icon as much for her stage performances as for her bold, daring public statements.” Casán is also “the great gay icon of the country” and a fixture in national LGBT culture; as the community sees “her as an icon of liberation and transgression.” Her only daughter, Sofía Gala, is also an actress.
